Brazilians protest under quarantine by clanging pots and pans, saying Bolsonaro ‘Get out!’

President Jair Bolsonaro faces outrage from citizens as they come out in their balconies and windows to protest against his administration. People clanged pots and pans with wooden spoons and chanted Fora Bolsonaro!” (“Get out, Bolsonaro!”).The Guardian reported.

The Covid-19 has taken nearly 15,000 lives across the world and seems set to do the same in Latin America in the coming weeks. The regional government is shutting borders and closing down big cities to control the virus from spreading.

The quick trigger for the protest against Bolsonaro is due to his reaction to the covid-19 pandemic, as he recently stating that coronavirus is a hysteria, media stunt, and fantasy.

As the pandemic made its first advances into Brazil recently, Brazil’s pioneer sparked outrage as he continued mingling with fans despite being advised to remain quarantined after getting ill during a trip to the US.

As per the Guardian, Wilma Dutra de Oliveira, a language teacher from Leblon, expressed that “We can no longer acknowledge an individual like this as our leader,” “The inclination I have is that the presidential seat is vacant,” and we don’t have a president instead we have a clown who doesn’t have a clue what he is doing.”

However, Mauro Ventura, a Brazilian author, said the window-side protest reflected greater, pent-up discontent against Bolsonaro’s administration the coronavirus emergency had made to detonate.

Oliveira stated that she didn’t anticipate that the present protests will bring about a quick change. Even though numerous intellectuals trust Bolsonaro has irreparably crippled, his odds to get re-elected in 2022.
