Brazil 1/8

Editorial cartoon by Pat Bagley. The violent attack on Brazil’s government was months in the making. Here’s what you need to know: CNN reports that Brazil was reeling Monday after hundreds of supporters of the country’s former leader Jair Bolsonaro stormed the seats of power in the capital Brasilia, trashing offices and drawing condemnation from the government and the international community. More than a thousand people have been arrested, with Brazilian Justice Minister Flavio Dino telling reporters Monday that there had been “about 1,500” arrests in Brasilia since the Sunday riots.
