Organizations that mobilized last weekend's protests against President Jair Bolsonaro's government are calling for new protests for next Sunday (14) in several cities.
The movement Somos Democracia (We Are Democracy), which brings together members of organized supporters of football teams, the MTST (Homeless Workers Movement), and the Popular Movements Center (CMP), confirmed June 14 protests on Monday (8).
The organization made the decisionn despite criticism of large gatherings in the middle of the Covid-19 pandemic, which contradicts medical guidelines to only break the rules of social distance in case of extreme need.
Organizers say they will ask participants to wear a mask, bring gel alcohol and to adhere to social distancing.
The call to action will again be a mixture of criticism of Bolsonaro, defense of democratic pillars, and support for the anti-racist cause and relief for SUS. Different movements are behind the calls, including the groups that call themselves antifascists, independent collectives, and party nuclei.
The president reacted this Monday to the demonstrations of his detractors and classified them as "the big problem of the moment".
