Thousands of demonstrators gathered in Brasilia along Monumental Axis, a central avenue leading to Brazil’s National Congress, on September 7 – the country’s Independence Day – in support of President Jair Bolsonaro.
The president rallied supporters to back him amid a row with the country’s judiciary. In his speech, posted as a live video to Facebook, Bolsonaro criticized the Supreme Court as unconstitutional, according to a report on the remarks by local outlet Folha de Sao Paulo.
