He was said to be cornered, tottering. On the very edge of the abyss, weakened by record unpopularity, multiple judicial inquiries and repeated crises. But maybe he was buried a little early. Against all odds, Jair Bolsonaro managed, Tuesday, September 7, to mobilize his supporters en masse in the streets of Brazil, on the occasion of national independence day.

Against the backdrop of threats of a coup, tens of thousands of demonstrators everywhere marched to defend their ailing president. The biggest gathering logically took place in Sao Paulo, the economic capital and largest metropolis of the country, on the Paulista, this “5e local avenue where banks, museums and places of power are aligned. And where, traditionally, the great popular mobilizations take place.

This Tuesday, they were more than 125,000, according to the police, under the sun and in a carnival atmosphere, between cold beers and grills, flags auriverdes and jerseys of the Seleçao. On balloons, t-shirts and anti-Covid-19 masks, Jair Bolsonaro, hero of the day, has been depicted weapon in hand as a brave soldier, on horseback like a cowboy, as the Hulk and other Marvel characters or as a saint, surrounded by Jesus and lions of Judah.

Everything is perfectly orchestrated. The mobilization has been preparing for weeks, organized at the highest summit of the State. In recent days, dozens of buses have converged on Sao Paulo. Slogan? “Down with justice! “, accused of obstructing the president’s action. “The Federal Supreme Court [STF, plus haute juridiction du pays] is infiltrated by the Communists. They want us to become Venezuela, Cuba or North Korea: countries destroyed! “, ton Gilson, 54, retired firefighter, wearing an orange cap.

“Bolsonaro is persecuted”

Target of popular retribution, Alexandre de Moraes, one of the eleven judges of the STF and bête noire of the demonstrators, appears grimaced as a vampire or a Taliban. His unforgivable sin: to have ordered in August the opening of an investigation against Jair Bolsonaro, for disseminating false information. The man is also vilified for his opposition to the return of the vote by paper ballot, old antiphon of the supporters of the president.

“Yes to democracy! Yes to freedom! “, has written Ida Silva, 39, on his sign, in Portuguese but also in English. There are many slogans written in foreign languages. Our message is intended for the world. We want to show that the honest and hardworking people are with Bolsonaro and not with the Workers’ Party [PT] by Lula! “, claims the protester – and too bad if only a quarter of Brazilians today approve of the president’s action.
