The majority of protesters who attended pro-Bolsonaro demonstrations in Brasília have dispersed. However, a few dozen people have set up tents at the Esplanade of Ministries and say they plan to remain there for “at least one more week.”

These groups are linked to agricultural lobbies, which have financially supported the organization of today’s events with buses, cash for protesters, banners … and even a free post-protest barbecue.
