Increased security presence at Brazil’s seats of power on Jan 8 riots anniversary


Police vehicles patrol the surroundings of Brazil’s Congress, presidential palace and Supreme Court in Brasilia, as 2,000 police officers are deployed on the first anniversary of the far-right riots that rocked the Brazilian capital on January 8, 2023. Tens of thousands of supporters of President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva’s defeated election rival, far-right ex-president Jair Bolsonaro, stormed the country’s seats of power that day, trashing the premises and calling on the military to oust the veteran leftist.
