According to the fronts Brasil Popular and People Without Fear, Out Bolsonaro National, Black Coalition for Rights, Anatorg and Black Convergence, in the #20NForaBolsonaroRacista they defend racial equality, life, democracy and employment, and denounce scarcity and hunger.

They specify that the removal of the ex-military officer is an essential condition for the country to regain hope for better days and to resume development with the generation of employment and income.

With Bolsonaro’s exit from power, they insist, the Covid-19 pandemic could be tackled, the population’s living conditions and control of the economy would be guaranteed, and the working class would also stop suffering abusive prices, such as those of food and fuel.

Such protests are carried out following safety protocols to avoid the spread of Covid-19 and the use of masks, keeping hands sanitized and social distance whenever possible is a priority.

On November 20, 1695 Zumbi de los Palmares, a slave who became the leader of the quilombo (Afro-Brazilian community) of the Palmares was killed and the date is remembered every year throughout the country.

The day also calls for actions to ponder the struggle of blacks against racial discrimination and social inequality that still prevails in Brazil.

Besides evoking the liberating saga of Zumbi de los Palmares, the genocide of thousands of young blacks in the poor outskirts will be denounced and the need for political combat against structural racism will be emphasized.
