Lula wants to avoid Brasília riot inquiry in Congress

Rate this post

The January 8 riots, when hordes of supporters of former far-right President Jair Bolsonaro stormed government buildings in Brasília, might have seemed like a moment of opportunity for the newly sworn-in Luiz Inácio da Silva administration. After all, it was vehemently condemned globally as an attack on one of the world’s largest democracies.
