This political act is also a battle of ideas, a battle over culture, emotions, and the image. Days later, Bolsonaristas, and their “project of national destruction” as Lula had called it, invaded that same palace.
The protests have intensified since October 10, following Henry’s request to the UN for international military assistance to fight criminal gangs.
