President Jair Bolsonaro (non-party) has used four of the last six working days to call for pro-Sept. 7 anti-democratic acts. On the eve of the demonstrations, the Chief Executive made his positions and inaugurations, trips and lives. He also “killed” half the day on two dates to make motorcycle “warm ups” with supporters.
Bolsonaro worked full time at the Palácio do Planalto in just two of the last six working days. The “abandonment” of the office since Friday (27) was inaugurated with a motorcycle with supporters in Goiânia.
The president went to the capital of Goiás in the morning, fulfilled schedules that added up to 1 hour and 50 minutes and ended the day. During the afternoon, he participated in the event with motorcyclers, deputies and even government members.
The event was seen as one of the “hotspots” for September 7 on the president’s agenda. Federal and state deputies and leaders of local pocketnarist movements accompanied the president on his tour of Goiânia with speeches and banners in support of the population’s presence at the Independence Day events.
On Monday (30), Bolsonaro returned to the office and completed the day’s work normally. The work routine in Brasília was interrupted by a new trip and a new closing of work before lunchtime.
On Tuesday (31), he participated in an event of 1 hour and 30 minutes in Uberlândia (MG) and again “hanged” the afternoon for motociata with supporters. In the city of Minas Gerais, the president also spoke about the importance of the presence of his supporters at the demonstrations.
The president began the month of September by traveling again. On the 1st of this month, he went to Rio de Janeiro in the morning for a ceremony with Olympic athletes who won medals at the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo. Bolsonaro gave the athletes a medal with his own face. In a speech, he told Hebert to “beat them there” and mentioned the weaponry of civilians, which has been encouraged by his political group.
“With flowers, you don’t win war. If you talk about weapons… if you want peace, prepare for war,” he said.
On his return, he had a 50-minute meeting with Pedro César Sousa, deputy head for Legal Affairs at the General Secretariat of the Presidency of the Republic. The activity also had the tone of a “campaign” pro-demonstrations.
On Thursday (2), finally, Bolsonaro completed his full day in Brasília. At the end of the day, as usual, he made his live weekly on social networks accompanied by the Minister of Health, Marcelo Queiroga. This Friday (3), the president again traveled to inaugurations in the Northeast, participating in events in Tanhaçu (BA) and Recife (PE).
Last Friday (27), the Brazil in fact showed that the president closed the office before 6:00 pm on 29 of the 34 Fridays of 2021. The survey considered the closing time of the last meeting made by the agent.
The proportion of presidential “sextous” before business hours corresponds to 85% of Fridays in 2021. Since the beginning of the year, the last meeting in Bolsonaro ended at 4:00 pm or before that time in 16 opportunities. On six dates, he ended activities even before noon.
Bolsonaro repeated this Friday (3) that the September 7 demonstrations will serve as an ultimatum to STF ministers. The attacks were directed at Alexandre de Moraes and Luís Roberto Barroso, the latter also president of the TSE (Superior Electoral Court).
“We do not criticize institutions or Powers. We are punctual. We cannot admit that one or two people who use the power of power want to give a new direction to our country,” he said. “These one or two people have to understand their place. And your message, Brazilian people, on the streets, next Tuesday, the 7th, will be an ultimatum for these two people.”
“Bow to the Constitution, respect our freedom, understand that you two are on the wrong path because there is always time to redeem yourself,” the president continued.
On the 7th, Bolsonaro should participate in demonstrations in Brasília, in the morning, and in São Paulo, in the afternoon, on Avenida Paulista.
