‘We will not be silenced’: Bolsonaro opponents pledge widespread protests

Following Brazil’s election of a far-right president, leaders on the left have planned demonstrations across the country

Opponents of Brazil’s newly elected far-right president, Jair Bolsonaro, have vowed to hit the streets to oppose the intolerance and violence they fear he will inflict upon the world’s fourth largest democracy.

The once inconceivable election of the 63-year-old populist provocateur on Sunday represents a hammer blow to Brazil’s left and to millions of progressive Brazilians appalled by his hostility towards black, gay and indigenous people as well as the environment and human rights.
