Reduction of aid
The Bolsonaro government followed the opposite path from the agendas of popular movements and kept the amount of emergency aid reduced in this year of 2021. Amid the economic crisis aggravated by the new coronavirus pandemic, the benefit was reduced from R$ 600 to R$ 1,200 last year to an average of R$250 this year.
The reduction took effect from April this year, with payment limited to only one person per family.

The increase in aid is one of the agendas of the protests that have taken place since May across the country calling for the end of Jair Bolsonaro’s (non-party) government.
Brazil registers 19 million people suffering from hunger, according to 2020 data from the Brazilian Research Network on Food and Nutritional Sovereignty and Security (Penssan).
