Tens of thousands of women march in Brazil against BolsonaroBrasília (AFP) – Tens of thousands of women took to the streets of Brazil’s capital Wednesday to denounce President Jair Bolsonaro, in the third anti-government protest in the city in two days. The huge demonstration in Brasilia comes as Bolsonaro faces increasing heat over rampant deforestation in the Amazon rainforest as well as education funding cuts, which have sparked nationwide protests by students and professors in recent months, including one in the capital on Tuesday. The “March of the Margaridas” is named after Brazilian trade union leader Margarida Maria Alves, who was murdered in 1983 during the military dictatorship.
