Clashes between police and Bolsonaro supporters in Brasilia
Clashes erupted on the evening of December 12 in Brasilia between police and supporters of the Past President Jair Bolsonaro, demanding the release of an indigenous leader arrested for inciting violence.
The unrest broke out outside the police headquarters, after the arrest, on the orders of Federal Supreme Court Judge Alexandre de Moraes, of the cacique José Acacio Serere Xavante for threats and acts of intimidation against the “democratic rule of law “.
He is accused of having organized several demonstrations “of an anti-democratic nature” in the capital, including in front of the hotel where left-wing elected president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva is staying.
The police tried to disperse the demonstrators using tear gas and rubber bullets. The protesters, some armed with sticks, responded by throwing stones, according to the AFP photographer at the scene. Several buses and cars were attacked and set on fire.
According to the General Prosecutor’s Office of the Republic, Serere Xavante “used his position as cacique” to incite natives and non-natives to “commit violent crimes” against Lula and magistrates of the Federal Supreme Court. Lula received on December 12 the certification of his election for a third term as President of Brazil, before his inauguration on January 1.
Lula is officially named President of the Federative Republic of Brazil.
