Watch: Thousands of protesters marched the streets of Brazil

Protesters marched in several cities across Brazil against far-right Brazilian President-elect Jair Bolsonaro on Tuesday night. In Sao Paulo, several thousand marched along the central Paulista Avenue, many draped in rainbow flags and holding signs against fascism.

Guilherme Boulos, the former presidential candidate of the PSOL (Socialism and Liberty Party), defended their right to march. “A president has to respect the liberty of demonstration, of expression. He has to respect the opposition and not say that it will lead to prison or exile,” he said.

Boulos was defeated during the first round of the elections and supported the Workers Party candidate, Fernando Haddad, in the second round.
