The Evita Movement in one of its demonstrations

The Evita Movement will march to the Brazilian Embassy in “defense of democracy”

The popular organization led by Emilio Pérsico will mobilize at 10:30 a.m. to Cerrito and Juncal in support of the government of Lula da Silva

In repudiation of the attempted coup suffered in Brazil and under the slogan “let’s defend democracy” in that country, the Evita Movement called for a march in front of the Brazilian Embassy this Tuesday, precisely near Carlos Pellegrini Square, in facing the Pereda Palace, the diplomatic headquarters.

The official popular movement, led by the Secretary of Social Economy, Emilio Pérsico, will march from the intersection of Callao and Juncal at 10:30. “We absolutely repudiate and condemn the assaults that occurred yesterday (for Sunday) against the three powers of the State of Brasilia. These facts reflect a systematic attitude of attacking democracy, the well-being and the security of the Brazilian people,” said a statement released in recent hours.

“We marched to the Brazilian Embassy in support of Lula and the Brazilian people,” they expressed in response to the thousands of supporters of former President Jair Bolsonaro who invaded the headquarters of the three branches of the State in Brasilia: the Planalto Palace, the Congress and The supreme court of justice.

The Evita Movement repudiated the acts of violence and expressed that “we denounce the speeches and actions that former President Bolsonaro has been carrying out before and after the electoral process.” And they affirmed that “questioning the electoral system, not expressly recognizing Lula’s victory, calling mobilizations and violent attacks ‘popular movements’, not condemning the terrorist attacks that have occurred in recent weeks, among others, constitute the necessary background for this coup attempt.”

In addition, they affirmed: “Observing the actions of the Military Police, dependent on the Federal District, the responsibility of the now former Secretary of Public Security, Anderson Torres, who had been Bolsonaro’s Minister of Justice and Public Security, is evident.”

So far it has not been reported if there will be speakers at the call or if it will be just a mobilization.
