“No going back to the past” and “respect for democracy”: ministers

The Supreme Court (STF) ministers Alexandre de Moraes and Luís Roberto Barroso, targets of the coup demonstrations called by President Jair Bolsonaro (no party) on September 7, used social media to demonstrate in favor of democracy.

::Another threat: Bolsonaro talks about “federal intervention” in a speech to supporters in the DF::

With a video of the national anthem in the background, Barroso highlighted the peaceful coexistence between different social and political groups in Brazil. And ended: “The love of Brazil and democracy unites us. No going back to the past.”

One of President Bolsonaro’s main enemies, Alexandre de Moraes used the same social network to link Brazilian independence to democracy.

By opposing coup demonstrations by Bolsonaro allies in recent weeks, the ministers were accused by the president of violating the Constitution. The accusation was echoed by Bolsonaro supporters during demonstrations this morning in Brasília.

Coupled statement

In a speech during the event in the federal capital, Bolsonaro stated that he will meet with the Council of the Republic this Wednesday (8). The agency would be competent to assess a possible federal intervention, the state of defense or the state of siege.

To Brasil de Fato, however, the press offices of the president of the Senate, Rodrigo Pacheco (DEM-MG), the president of the Chamber, Arthur Lira (PP-AL), and the president of the Supreme Court, Luiz Fux, did not confirm the achievement of the encounter.

Member of the Council of the Republic, federal deputy Marcelo Freixo (PSB-RJ) argued that the body cannot meet under pressure from Bolsonaro’s coup threats.
