Supporting former Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, thousands stormed the country’s Congress, Supreme Court and presidential palace and ransacked it last weekend.
The Sky News Daily podcast hosts Niall Paterson and Victoria Elms, our digital investigative journalist about the events that led to the protest. He also discusses the aftermath with Sky News’s chief reporter Stuart Ramsay who is currently in Brasilia.
Richard Lapper, author of Beef, Bullets and Bible: Brazil In The Age of Bolsonaro, discusses the role of the former leader in inciting these events and the parallels between the events in Brazil and those in the US on January 6, 2021.
