The acts, called by Bolsonaro, take place amid clashes between the president and the Supreme Court (STF) and in a context of economic crisis. The demonstrations are guided by anti-democratic agendas and attacks on the judiciary and Congress.

Participants of the demonstration in Belo Horizonte carry English banners with sayings like “Brazilian people say no to members of the Supreme Court”.
