Brasilia. Hundreds of supporters of Brazil’s far-right former President Jair Bolsonaro stormed Congress, the Presidential Palace and the Supreme Court on Sunday, breaking police barricades. During this he did a lot of sabotage. Which President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva condemned as a ‘fascist’ attack. Large groups of protesters carrying green and yellow flags stormed the centers of power in Brasilia. According to a news agency AFP, a crowd of people ransacked the Parliament or Congress building, trampled the Supreme Court headquarters and climbed the ramp to the Presidential Palace.

This attack by supporters of former Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro reminded of the uproar by supporters of then President Donald Trump at the US Capitol Building on January 6, 2021. When Trump supporters stormed the US Capitol Building in Washington and did heavy vandalism. Current President Lula was visiting an area affected by severe flooding in the southeastern city of Arraquara at the time of the incident. He signed a decree declaring a federal intervention in Brasília. Due to which his government got special powers to restore law and order in the capital. Lula, a 77-year-old veteran leftist leader who took over as Brazil’s president just a week ago after defeating Bolsonaro in October’s election, said these fascist hardliners had done something that had never been seen before in the country’s history.

Lula said that ‘we will find out who these troublemakers are and they will be eliminated with the full force of the law’. Significantly, since Bolsonaro was badly defeated in the October 30 election, hardline Bolsonaro supporters have been protesting outside army bases in Brazil demanding military intervention to prevent Lula from assuming power. A crowd of protesters climbed onto the roof of the Congress building on Sunday and unfurled a banner urging the army to intervene. Social media footage showed rioters breaking doors and windows to enter the Congress building, then moving in en masse and ransacking MPs’ offices.
