Pro Bolsonaro Brazilians Storm Capital

On Sunday, supporters of the far right, former Brazilian president, Bolsonaro, stormed the Congress, Supreme Court, and Presidential Palace in the capital Brasilia. The attack on Brazil’s capital came just a week after the leftist worker party leader, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, became inaugurated as Brazil’s president. The mob was made up of hundreds of Brazilians who trashed offices, broke windows, and destroyed the computer and art equipment on display. Police have arrested 400 rioters since Sunday.
