Obeying their bosses (agribusiness entrepreneurs), transporters closed roads in at least 16 states and in this capital they tried to approach the headquarters of Congress and the STF.
The Infrastructure ministry indicated that there are no more lane interdiction points on the federal highway network.
According to G1 news portal, blockades continue even after Bolsonaro recorded an audio asking truckers to free the roads.
The ex-military man said in the recording that the action ‘disturbs the economy’ and ‘harms everyone, especially the poorest’.
Such action began on September 7, the Independence Day, when Bolsonaro led demonstrations in Brasilia and Sao Paulo to speak in the name of freedom, but in a coup tone he cast threats again the Supreme Court and ministers who authorized an investigation against him for spreading fake news.
After the protests on the national holiday, the Brazilian political and judicial world repudiated the radical speeches of the head of state.
President of the STF, Luiz Fux, criticized Bolsonaro’ s words and warned that no one will close the high court.
He recalled that on posters and slogans in pro-government demonstrations on Tuesday, harsh words were directed against the Supreme Court and its magistrates, many of which were made by the president.
