RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil (Sputnik) - Brazilians took to the streets of the country's major cities on Saturday to demand the impeachment of President Jair Bolsonaro.
According to a Sputnik correspondent, social movements, unions, and leftist political parties gathered in Rio de Janeiro to voice their discontent. The organisers attempted to bring in centre and centre-right forces to no avail. The protests are currently peaceful.
Most of the banners and slogans chanted by the protesters are about the victims of the COVID-19 pandemic, whose number is approaching 600,000, delays in acquiring vaccines, joblessness, hunger, as well as high gas prices.
Protesters spoke in support of the previous president, Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, who is currently very popular among Brazilians. The country is scheduled to hold a presidential election in October 2022.
The demonstrations are the fifth nationwide anti-Bolsonaro protest by left-wing forces since May.
Incidentally, a poll released the day before the protest revealed that a record 58% of polled Brazilians rejected Bolsonaro's work in office, with many agreeing that his performance has been either "bad" or "very bad".
