Hundreds of pro-Lula protesters had also earlier gathered outside the Metalworkers' Union HQ in the Sao Bernardo do Campo area. Earlier, the Supreme Court confirmed that 72-year-old Lula will serve a prison sentence directly after the rejection of his first appeal by a vote of 6:5 and he has been ordered to hand himself into the authorities.
