'So what?': Brazilian Embassy in Paris is the target of protest against Bolsonaro

The walls of the Brazilian embassy in Paris, France, dawned on Thursday, the 21st, full of banners of protest against the policy of President Jair Bolsonaro for the fight against Covid-19 in Brazil, as shown in images posted on social networks.

The cloths, all in black, call for Bolsonaro's departure for his conduct of the coronavirus pandemic. One of the flags hanging on the walls refers to the phrase “so what?”, Used by the president when dealing with the thousands of deaths in the country. The green of the Brazilian flag gave way to black, and the motto “order and progress” was replaced by “chaos and obscurantism”.

The images that quickly went viral were first posted by artist Júlio Villani. “Get out Bolsonaro! Another Brazil is possible ”, he wrote. Shortly after, Márcia Tiburi, writer and professor of philosophy at Université Paris 8, also registered the protest on her social networks.

VEJA sought out Julio Villani, Márcia Tiburi and the Brazilian embassy in Paris to comment on the matter, but has yet to receive an answer. The authors of the protest were not revealed. Itamaraty has not yet spoken.

The day before the demonstration, the Brazilian ambassador to France, Luís Fernando Serra, issued a note to the editorial director of the French newspaper Le Monde to repudiate a recent article in which the Brazilian president is accused of “causing health chaos and sowing death”. According to Serra, “Bolsonaro never denied the existence of Covid-19. What he has done since the beginning of the health crisis is to try to prevent hysteria or panic from dominating the population ”.

Demonstrations against Bolsonaro at Brazilian embassies, such as in Switzerland, Germany and New Zealand, and at major events, such as at G7 meetings, have been occurring frequently since last year. Both for its foreign policy, linked to that of the United States and clearly opposed to multilateralism, and for its domestic initiatives – the neglect in fighting fires in the Amazon last year, the authoritarian president's own statements and, now, the failure in the pandemic control in the country – the Brazilian government has its image undermined in the international environment.
