Aslıhan DOĞRU -TDO- Thousands of citizens have protested in several Brazilian cities in protest against the government of President Jair Bolsonaro.
Thousands of people took to the streets in more than a hundred cities across the country at the urging of labor unions, left-wing political parties, and social groups to protest against the Bolsonaro government and demand a new type of coronavirus (Covid-19) vaccine, Brazilian media reported.
Demonstrators holding anti-Bolsonaro banners demanded that the president be tried and removed from office.
Protesters blamed Bolsonaro for the deaths of more than 450,000 people in the country from Covid-19 and called for the Senate to speed up the investigation of the commission set up to investigate whether the Bolsonaro administration acted negligently against the pandemic.
There was a small clash between police and demonstrators during protests in the city of Recife.
