Natives with Bolsonaro posters took to Brazil’s airport this Friday (2) to demonstrate against President-elect Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva (PT).

A video circulating online shows a group of several dozen people holding green and yellow banners and placards, anti-censorship slogans and chants of “Lula, thief.”

Indigenous leaders, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the protesters are from the Kayapo people, who are partly supporters of incumbent Jair Bolsonaro (PL), who lost the polls.

“We are not going to be silenced”, “Brazil is calling for help”, and criticisms of the press are written on the posters, even in English. They protest the diplomacy of elected politicians and chant that Lula “doesn’t go up the ramp,” referring to the presidential inauguration scheduled for January 1.

The group concentrated in the local parking lot, but later occupied the departure and arrival area of ​​the airport, concentrating in front of the gates providing access to the aircraft.

Earlier, in November, natives in Brazil had already participated in Bolsonarian and anti-democratic actions.
At the time, however, they were from the Parez people, who are concentrated in Mato Grosso, a staunchly Bolsonaro state. The members of the ethnic group also participated in the coup d’état operations in the state.

Parés organize, for example, the Grupo dos Agricultores Indígenas, which unites communities that plant agricultural products on a large scale.

They were even welcomed by Funa (National Indigenous People’s Foundation) president Marcelo Javier, and praised by Bolsonaro, who encourages people to take up agriculture.

Another Bolsonarian and climate denialist name close to Parez is Nabn García, the land affairs secretary and one of the most important names in agriculture in the government.

García was even the one who nominated Javier for Funa’s position, and the two have been close since the time when the current president of the indigenous body, who is a police officer, worked in Mato Grosso.
