In Sao Paulo, a massive protest against the incumbent president was held

The many thousands of top Brazilians gathered for a protest in the center of Sao Paulo on September 13, 2021. Izvestia TV channel reported this with reference to local media.


The main demand of the protesters of the city is the resignation of President Jair Bolsonaro. He is accused of inconsistency in the vaccination campaign during the covid pandemic, as well as localism and multi-million dollar embezzlement from the treasury.


Recall that initially the President of Brazil did not recognize the existence of the coronavirus as such, and then did everything possible to sabotage a massive vaccination campaign. As a result, for a long time the country entrusted to him was among the world leaders in mortality and coronavirus infection. Several times the parliament tried to carry out the impeachment procedure, but the deputies-supporters of the president were able to block the decision in all cases.

Mass discontent with the president is only growing, with many of his former supporters from among government ministers expressing solidarity with the protesters and organizing their own protests.
