I’ve seen several news about Bolsonaro supporters trying to prevent Lula supporters from voting. Not sure how accurate this is, it wouldn’t surprise me at all, but I’m also used to see how the media depicts things in a less than fair way.

Also I saw some Bolsonarian woman chasing with a gun a black dude xD

Yes, we will…could be shades of this. :laughing: :laughing:

With the illegal logging of the Amazon. You know, the good Amazon. Not the Shitty Jeff Bozos Amazon.

It is largely believed that Lula will put an end to, if not severely mitigate the loss of the rainforest, of which if gone, could have severe consequences for the global environment and climate.

I hope so. I’ve been hearing that since like 1985, so not so sure.

I wouldn’t lose sleep though if they logged out the Jeff Bozos Amazon.

Yes, it has been happening for a looong time. During Bolsonaro’s term, it only got more media coverage.

It’s always hard to policy such large area.

The left media exaggerated quite a bit the fires and the poverty during his years, trying to blame him for things that have been the absolute norm in Brazil like forever.

Not saying that the guy isn’t and asshole and a threat. He is.

A simple look at the Wikipedia page would show that there have been multiple presidents since he left.

Regardless, it’s been widely accepted that the fact is, illegal logging accelerated in Bolsonaro’s time.

Which is a shame. He’s Italian.

Italians know better?

Nahh. I just like Italian representation in western multinational countries.

But I don’t like it when they behave badly.

Remember when Fujimori was president of Peru? Heaps of presumed pride in Japan at that time. He was however a fascist prick.
