PROGRESSIVE INTERNATIONAL

We, elected representatives and leaders from around the world,

are sounding the alarm: On 7 September 2021, an insurrection

will endanger democracy in Brazil.

Right now, President Jair Bolsonaro and his allies — including white

supremacist groups, military police, and public officials at every level of

government — are preparing a nation-wide march against the Supreme

Court and Congress on 7 September, stoking fears of a coup in the

world’s third largest democracy.

President Bolsonaro has escalated his attacks on Brazil’s democratic

institutions in recent weeks. On 10 August, he directed an

unprecedented military parade through the capital city of Brasília,

as his allies in Congress pushed sweeping reforms to the country’s

electoral system, widely considered to be one of the most trustworthy

in the world. Bolsonaro and his government have threatened — several

times — to cancel the 2022 presidential elections if Congress fails to

approve these reforms.

Now, Bolsonaro is calling on his followers to travel to Brasília on

7 September in an act of intimidation of the country’s democratic

institutions. According to a message shared by the President on 21

August, the march is preparation for a “necessary counter-coup”

against the Congress and the Supreme Court. The message claimed

that Brazil’s “communist constitution” has taken away Bolsonaro’s

power, and accused “the Judiciary, the left, and a whole apparatus of

hidden interests” of conspiring against him.

Members of Congress in Brazil have warned that the 7 September

mobilization has been modeled on the insurrection at the United

States Capital on 6 January 2021, when then-president Donald Trump

encouraged his supporters to “stop the steal” with false claims of

electoral fraud in the 2020 presidential elections.

We are gravely concerned about the imminent threat to Brazil’s

democratic institutions — and we stand vigilant to defend them ahead


of 7 September and after. The people of Brazil have struggled for

decades to secure democracy from military rule. Bolsonaro must not

be permitted to rob them of it now.”
