Thousands of pocketnarista demonstrators broke, on the night of Monday (6), a police blockade made at the Esplanada dos Ministérios and invaded the roads that give access to the Praça dos Três Poderes. The Federal District Military Police stated, in a statement, that they were unable to contain the military that supports President Jair Bolsonaro (no party) and defined the episode as an “invasion”.
Several videos circulating on the internet show a crowd of government supporters pressing law enforcement agents for opening. Several trucks and passenger buses forced their way through and managed to enter the Esplanade lanes, which should have been blocked for car and pedestrian access.

The security scheme provided for by Governor Ibaneis Rocha (MDB) determined that all protesters who went to the central region of Brasília should be searched. With the entry of protesters, the strategy failed, as several camp tents were erected in front of the ministries during the night.
With banners and flags in favor of the government, the group headed for areas close to the buildings of the Congress and the Federal Supreme Court, two of the main targets of the protesters. The summoning of the acts has an undemocratic character, asking for the closing of the Powers and the “seizure of power” by Bolsonaro with the help of the Armed Forces.
Fur Twitter, members of the Bolsonaro government, such as the minister of the Comptroller General of the Union (CGU), Wagner Rosário, and the minister of Tourism, Gilson Machado, celebrated the arrival of supporters in the Esplanada region. “It’s beautiful to see Brasília being taken over by good people. Orderly people, who only want to live in a fairer, freer and more democratic country. It’s beautiful to see!!! Long live the 7th of September!!!”, wrote Rosário.
The Praça dos Três Poderes, where the STF is located, will be blocked during the demonstration. The access of the Pocketnaristas will be prohibited from the height of the Itamaraty building, the last folder before the entrance of the Supreme Court.
