While Brazilian politicians are debating ways to minimize the effects of the so-called Car Wash investigation, manifestations defending the operation had little participation on Sunday (26).

The manifestations, which were held in at least 21 capital cities, were organized by groups that led the 2016 manifestations for the impeachment of then president Dilma Rousseff.

In São Paulo, 15 thousand people showed up on Paulista Avenue according to organizers - the Military Police didn't release any numbers.

In 2016, 500 thousand people came together in the same locale, according to the Datafolha research institute.

The Military Police confirmed 500 protesters in Brasília. In Rio, organizers didn't release any numbers.

According to groups who were coordinating the manifestations, the low participation rates were due to the diffusion of motives for the protests.

In addition to defending the Car Wash (Lava Jato) operation, there were those who were criticizing the mandatory payment of union dues, and others criticizing proposed political reforms and calls for military intervention.

The Planalto Presidential Palace didn't release any statements regarding the manifestations.
