  • "Terrorism" and an "attempted coup": this was the day in which Bolsonaro's followers tried to attack the democracy of Brazil

On January 8 in Brasilia, followers of former President Jair Bolsonaro entered the Plaza of the Three Powers, invaded and seriously destroyed the National Congress, the Supreme Court and the Planalto Palace, the seat of the country's government.

Investigations continue to determine the responsibility of each one of the participants in the events, both those who attacked public buildings, those who financed or promoted the acts and those who, by neglecting their positions of responsibility, made it possible for them to take place.


The Ministry of Justice has received more than 107,000 emails from the population with complaints from participants in anti-democratic acts.

They cite 50,000 individuals and nearly 14,000 organizations that allegedly financed or actually participated in terrorist acts.
