Dozens of supporters of Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro rallied in Sao Paulo on Saturday to demand the resignation of the state's governor whose COVID-19 lockdown measures they oppose.
The group of demonstrators were seen blocking traffic on Sao Paulo's Paulista Avenue, displaying banners and holding a mock coffin of Joao Doria, the state's governor.
«We are here today on Paulista avenue... Еще demanding the impeachment of governor Doria. He does not represent us anymore,» explained Falconi, a protester.
According to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University, Brazil has registered 149,000 cases of the coronavirus with more than 10,000 virus-related deaths. Sao Paulo remains one of the hardest-hit states in the country.
