Global Local News

Brazilians have protested against controversial presidential candidate Jair Bolsonaro. The country is deeply polarized ahead of October elections.

Thousands of Brazilians took to the streets in women-led protests on Saturday against right-wing presidential front-runner Jair Bolsonaro.

Under the banner “Not him,” protesters came out in dozens of cities including Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro to voice opposition to the former army officer who they view as racist, homophobic and misogynist.

Bolsonaro, currently serving as a congressman from Rio de Janeiro, almost died this month when he was stabbed by a left-wing radical and has been unable to campaign since. On Saturday, he was discharged from the hospital.

Brazilians who live in Debrecen also protested on Kossuth Tér.
