"Estamos profundamente preocupadxs por la inminente amenaza a las instituciones democráticas de Brasil"

Más de 150 parlamentarixs, ministrxs y expresidentxs de 26 países advierten de los planes para una "insurrección" del presidente brasileño Jair Bolsonaro el 7 de septiembre.
“Nosotrxs, representantes electxs, lideresas y líderes de todo el mundo, encendemos la alarma: el 7 de septiembre de 2021, una insurrección pondrá en peligro la democracia en Brasil.
“Nosotrxs, representantes electxs, lideresas y líderes de todo el mundo, encendemos la alarma: el 7 de septiembre de 2021, una insurrección pondrá en peligro la democracia en Brasil.

Ahora mismo, el presidente Jair Bolsonaro y sus aliadxs —entre quienes se encuentran grupos de supremacistas blancxs, la policía militar y funcionarixs públicxs en todos los niveles del gobierno— están preparando una marcha a nivel nacional en contra de la Corte Suprema y el Congreso el 7 de septiembre, agudizando los temores de un golpe de Estado en la tercera democracia más grande del mundo.

El presidente Bolsonaro ha intensificado sus ataques en contra de las instituciones democráticas de Brasil en las últimas semanas. El 10 de agosto, dirigió un desfile militar sin precedentes por la capital, Brasilia, y sus aliadxs en el Congreso impulsaron reformas radicales al sistema electoral del país, ampliamente considerado uno de los más confiables del mundo. Bolsonaro y su gobierno han amenazado —reiteradamente— con cancelar las elecciones presidenciales de 2022 si el Congreso no aprueba estas reformas.

Ahora, Bolsonaro convoca a sus seguidorxs a viajar a Brasilia el 7 de septiembre en un acto de intimidación a las instituciones democráticas del país. Según un mensaje compartido por el presidente el 21 de agosto, la marcha es en preparación para un “contragolpe necesario” contra el Congreso y la Corte Suprema. El mensaje afirmaba que la “constitución comunista” de Brasil le ha quitado el poder a Bolsonaro, y acusaba al “poder judicial, la izquierda y todo un aparato de intereses ocultos” de conspirar en su contra.

Diputadxs de Brasil han advertido que la movilización del 7 de septiembre ha sido modelada de la insurrección en la capital estadounidense el 6 de enero de 2021, cuando el entonces presidente Donald Trump incitó a sus seguidorxs a “detener el robo” con falsas denuncias de fraude electoral en las elecciones presidenciales de 2020.

Estamos profundamente preocupadxs por la inminente amenaza a las instituciones democráticas de Brasil —y nos mantendremos vigilantes para defenderlas antes del 7 de septiembre y después. El pueblo de Brasil ha luchado por décadas para garantizar la democracia contra el dominio militar. No debemos permitir que Bolsonaro se las arrebate ahora.
