No one attends the new call for coup demonstration in Brazil

Major demonstrations called for by the far-right in Brazil’s main cities have been ruled out this Wednesday after the Court of Justice warned it would take legal action against anyone who tried to continue promoting the coup.

Avenida Paulista in Sao Paulo and Copacabana Beach in Rio de Janeiro were deserted during the call, and only two Bolsonaros attended the Esplanade of Ministries in Brazil, sitting on the ground in front of several armored personnel carriers. police.

In other Brazilian capitals, the same scenario was repeated: empty streets, no protesters, a large presence of journalists and a large deployment of security forces.

The call was circulated on Tuesday night among Bolsonaro groups on social networks, who planned to call for a “mega-demonstration” to “restore power”, a charge that prompted a reaction from the justices.

Supreme Court Magistrate Alexandre de Moraes, who is investigating the case investigating anti-democratic acts, ordered Brazilian authorities to prevent the blocking of any roads, highways or public facilities and to arrest anyone attempting to do so.

The magistrate also ordered Telegram to block channels and profiles that promote this type of act, an instruction that the social network complied with, as several groups commonly used by radicals could not be accessed.

In other groups that were not blocked, some users warned that the call for demonstrations was a “trap” to catch extremists who call themselves “patriots”.

“We have decided to take measures to strengthen security across the country as calls for new demonstrations continue to spread. For this reason, we are taking a precautionary stance regarding the security of the Esplanade of Ministries (the avenue where the main public buildings are located) and cities across the country,” said Presidential Minister Rui Costa.

The calls for demonstrations came after thousands of Bolsonaro supporters launched a coordinated attack last week on the parliament headquarters, the Planalto presidential palace and the Supreme Court.

Radical Bolsonaros have caused extensive damage to palaces, aiming to topple President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, a week after he took power.

More than 1,500 people have been arrested in connection with the attacks, with around 600 released on “humanitarian grounds”, although they are still involved in the process.
