Justice Alexandre de Moraes of Brazil’s supreme federal court announced Wednesday that any protesters across the country who obstruct roads or access public buildings will be subject to arrest and fines.
The ruling, which upheld a request from the country’s attorney general, effectively calls for a temporary suspension of the right to protest in Brazil, ahead of planned pro-Bolsonaro marches Wednesday evening.
Individuals who obstruct roads or “invade” government or publicly owned buildings across the country could be arrested and fined up to 20,000 Brazilian reais, or the US equivalent of more than $3,800. Fines of up to 100,000 reais, or more than $19,200, could apply to businesses that support such protests, either digitally or by providing logistical or financial support.
