Far-Right Protesters Stage Jan. 6-Style Invasion On Brazil’s Capital

On Sunday, thousands of supporters of Jair Bolsonaro, the far-right former President of Brazil who lost re-election last year, stormed the main government buildings of the capital Brasilia. In a scene eerily reminiscent of the Jan. 6, 2020 insurrection in Washington, D.C., the right-wing rioters broke into the Brazilian Congress, Supreme Court and Presidential Palace. Bolsonaro is a close ally of former U.S. President Donald Trump, and Bolsonaro and his supporters have, like Trump, pushed false narratives that the recent elections was stolen.
