OAS convenes extraordinary meeting for anti-democratic acts in Brazil

The Permanent Council of the Organization of American States (OAS) will hold an extraordinary meeting tomorrow Wednesday to “consider the undemocratic acts” that have occurred in Brazil.

During the session, the Brazilian delegation is expected to present the events that occurred on Sunday, followed by the interventions of the rest of the representatives of other States.

The meeting of the Permanent Council, motivated by the Bolsonaristas’ assault on the seats of Parliament, the Presidency and the Supreme Court, is scheduled to begin at 10:00 local time (15:00 GMT).

The OAS explained that the session has been requested by the missions of Antigua and Barbuda, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, the United States, Honduras, Panama, Uruguay and the General Secretariat, according to a cable efe.

The presidents of Chile, Gabriel Boric, and Colombia, Gustavo Petro, yesterday Monday raised their voices against the attempted coup in Brazil and called for regional “unity” to strengthen democracies.

In a joint appearance at La Moneda (Chilean Government headquarters), both leaders confirmed their intention to request an extraordinary meeting at the OAS due to the crisis unleashed on Sunday in Brazil.

Brazil: the political dystopia come true

Calm returned to Brasilia on Monday, after the attacks on the day before against the headquarters of the three powers by radical Bolsonarists, who sought to overthrow the progressive Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva a week after he assumed the head of state in Brazil.

The Brazilian authorities have detained some 1,500 Bolsonaro protesters since Sunday for their alleged involvement in these events.
