The Court of Justice of São Paulo (TJ-SP) decided this Friday (27), that the state governor, João Doria (PSDB), cannot stop the popular protests against President Jair Bolsonaro (no party) scheduled for the next 7th of September in the capital, as long as they take place at different points from the pro-government demonstrations, scheduled to take place on Avenida Paulista.
The toucan representative had said, last Thursday (26), that the Secretariat of Public Security of São Paulo had prohibited the act of opponents in the state territory for alleged security reasons.
::After a court decision, an act against Bolsonaro on September 7th will be in Vale do Anhangabaú::
The opposition political entities that articulated the protest against the Bolsonaro government had already announced, the day before, the change of location for the demonstration, this time planned for the Vale do Anhagabaú, central region of the capital. With the maintenance of the ban by the local government, the groups in question opened a legal dispute and obtained an injunction favorable to the protest of the segment.
The decision of this Friday (27), given by judge Rodolfo Ferraz de Campos, of the 14th Public Finance Court, points out that freedom of expression is a legal right and that “there is no possible prohibition” for this.
“It is of the democratic essence, even, that they are not only allowed, but, in fact, because permission is not needed, that they are not impeded, respecting the constitutional guidelines”, argues the judge, citing Article 5 of the Federal Constitution and the importance of “peacefulness”.
:: For injuring the PM-SP regiment, police officers who support anti-democratic acts can be expelled ::
The pro-government act is scheduled to take place on Avenida Paulista with the presence of Bolsonaro and is linked to authoritarian flags, as is the case of the chorus of extremists for the closing of the Federal Supreme Court (STF). The camp rivals the opposition to the administration, which condemns undemocratic acts and plans, also for the 7th, the traditional Grito dos Excluídos, a demonstration that takes place annually in various parts of the country.
The segment of the opponents that organize the act against Bolsonaro includes popular movements, political parties, union centrals and other collectives gathered in the National Campaign Fora Bolsonaro.
