Tens of thousands of former Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro’s supporters stormed Brazil's National Congress, Supreme Federal Court and the Planalto Palace, and a U.S. politician is comparing it to the Jan. 6 in the US.
Demonstrators have been protesting for 68 days over stolen elections by communist infiltrators in the judiciary and other branches of government.
The 'Jan 6 protest' has been shown to be planned and implemented by the national security apparatus of the U.S. government.
From the videos on social media, it appears to be some destruction as protestors entered the Brasilia congressional building Sunday afternoon.
Brazilian reporter Renato Souza said President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, who was sworn into office last week, was not in the area. Reports are he fled to Sao Paulo rather than face the wrath of the people.
About an hour later, Bolsonaro supporters entered the federal court building, according to local outlet Metropoles.
It has been reported that Brazilian law enforcement threw gas onto the protesters.
Additional reports are surfacing that the protestors had breached Brazil's Planalto Palace.
Brasilia's Governor Ibaneis Rocha ordered the suspension of electricity and water to the entire government’s compounds in case the protesters occupied the buildings was reported by Alerta News 24.
Brazilian reporter Ana Viriato posted a video showing police officers speaking to demonstrators and filming the rioters.
Reports from Metropoles and Souza state that the media and government employees in the buildings were attacked.
"Democracies of the world must act fast to make clear there will be no support for right-wing insurrectionists storming the Brazilian Congress. These fascists modeling themselves after Trump’s Jan. 6 rioters must end up in the same place: prison," tweeted Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.), former House Jan. 6 committee member.
At some point, a majority of citizens of former Democracies will understand the 'Jan 6' narrative, is just that, an information operation to prevent the people from preserving democracy.
