Brazil: French Elected Officials Condemn ‘Far-Right Attacks’

As images of Brazil’s chaos flood social media, French elected officials from the presidential camp and the leftist opposition on Sunday night lashed out at “far-right attacks” in Brazil. They showed their support for President Lula following the incursion of Bolsonarist militants into several institutions.

“Solidarity with the Brazilian people, whose institutions are under attack from far-right activists. This is where the conspiracy leads, the delegitimization of a democratically elected president and the questioning of universal suffrage,” tweeted Macronist Stephan Sejourne, MEP, MP, MP, head of the Renaissance party.

“This is what the far right is all over the world! In the end always the rejection of democracy! Full support for President #Lula! “, also emphasized the number one of the Socialist Party Olivier Fauré, always on Twitter. Anne Hidalgo, the mayor of Paris, also declared her “full support” for Lula, “democratically elected by the Brazilian people, which the extreme right does not accept.” “In the face of fascism and populism, let’s never let our guard down,” she adds.

“January 6, 2021, Washington, January 8, 2023, Brasilia. The scenario plays out identically, with the far right refusing the verdict of the polls. Support Lulu to restore democracy in Brazil,” added fellow MP Valerie Rabo, Vice President of the National Assembly.

Hundreds of supporters of far-right former President Jair Bolsonaro invaded the Congress, the presidential palace and the Supreme Court in Brasília on Sunday, a week after the inauguration of the left-wing President Lula, whose election they reject.
