Tens of Thousands of Brazilians Storm Government Buildings

ER Editor: We issue an MSM warning for the Zerohedge piece below, which relies on German MSM source Deutsche Welle. (Well, this means that the MSM are at least picking up the story, unlike its radio silence previously.) Therefore, the story gets written from Lula’s standpoint, which avoids discussing the legitimacy of alleged election fraud at the last round of elections.

We’re opening with the beginning of an article by Gateway Pundit, which is acutely aware of the issue of election fraud and that a large chunk of the Brazilian population are both aware and angry about this. They’ve been protesting for weeks, encouraging the military to take action.

Lula was inaugurated Sunday, January 1st. See this piece by Michel van der Kamp from Dec. 31st:

Has Bolsonaro Conceded the Brazilian Elections?


Translation: The electoral fraud of the left is the core of the problem. In Peru, in Colombia, in Brazil…

This summary has validity according to what we’ve read and published:

January 6, 2021 in Washington, anyone?

Translation: A woman in Brazil claims that there were infiltrators in the protests causing fires and destruction. Some Bolsonaro supporters tried to stop them without success.

The tone of this unsympathetic tweet and the actions we see strongly suggest some sort of playbook is being copied to incriminate people:

Translation: Calling the government a squatter, delegitimizing it, denying electoral victories, are all paths that lead to having ultras assaulting democratic institutions. Yesterday it was the United States, today it is Brazil, tomorrow it could be anyone.


We cannot vouch for this story at Real Raw News, but we highly recommend checking it out:

Reports put the number of protestors in the capital in the millions.

Protestors have broken through the barriers around the National Congress and are storming the building:

Gunfire or explosions can be heard on some. It was not clear if it was live ammo being fired, or tear gas and rubber bullets.

What appears to be thousands of supporters of former Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro stormed the National Congress building in Brasilia on Sunday, as well as the Presidential Palace and the nation’s top court, according to news agency LUSA.

The protesters are calling for military intervention to overthrow President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, who was inaugurated last week.

Since the October 30 elections, in which Lula defeated Bolsonaro, hundreds of people have been camped in front of the Army Headquarters in Brasília.

Footage shared on social media showed hundreds of people pouring into the building. The protesters were met with police tear gas.

Lula blames Bolsonaro

“Everyone knows that the ex-president stimulated this,” said Lula. “He stimulated the invasions of the three branches of government. This is his responsibility and the responsibility of the parties that support him. We are going to investigate profoundly and quickly.”

According to LUSA, the group, wearing yellow and green T-shirts and Brazilian flags, crossed police barriers and climbed the ramp which allows access to the roof of the Chamber of Deputies and Senate buildings.
