Brasilia: 1,200 arrested after the eviction of a Bolsonarist camp in front of the Army Headquarters

The eviction of the camp set up by Bolsonarist demonstrators in front of the Army Headquarters in Brasilia, ordered by the minister of the Supreme Federal Court of Brazil (STF), Alexandre de Moraes, passed without incident. And as a balance, some 1,200 people were detained, sources in the Army’s communication sector reported, according to what was published by O’Globo. Images reproduced by the G1 news portal showed people carrying tents and bags, several of them with yellow shirts and inscriptions in support of the far-right former president, as they left the place, after De Moraes gave a period of 24 hours to comply with the order. The STF minister also prohibited, and until the end of January, the entry of trucks or buses with demonstrators in the Federal District of Brazil and liberated all routes, state and federal public buildings throughout the country. This Sunday, pro-Bolsonaro demonstrators who refuse to accept the defeat of the former president in the last presidential elections, invaded the headquarters of the three powers of the neighboring country, demanding a military intervention to overthrow President Lula da Silva, in office since January 1. The assailants broke into security barricades, broke doors and windows and occupied part of the building and roofs of the Planalto Palace, seat of executive power. In the evening, security forces retook control of the buildings.
