President Jair Bolsonaro has called for his supporters to hold demonstrations nationwide on Sunday, March 15, to show their support for him. Similar pro-Bolsonaro demonstrations in May of 2019 brought tens of thousands of people to the streets of urban centers across Brazil.
A heightened security presence and associated transportation disruptions, including traffic congestion and road closures, are to be expected in the vicinity of any demonstration site. Counter-demonstrations and clashes between protesters and security forces are possible.
Individuals in Brazil are advised to monitor the situation, avoid all large public gatherings and demonstrations as a precaution, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities.
