The images show the doll with the president’s face, tied to a post, and people around him striking with pieces of wood. At the end of the video, another doll also appears – this time, with the figure of the Minister of Economy, Paulo Guedes.
Protesters also shout “out, Bolsonaro”, while hitting the doll.
At the end of the recording, the doll with the face of the Chief Executive is burned, screaming “genocide”.
The case took place in the Santa Teresa neighborhood in Rio de Janeiro. The Bolsonaro doll would be a representation of Judas Iscariot, who betrayed Jesus, according to the Holy Bible. The tradition is part of the celebration of the Hallelujah Sabbath, which has as its landmark the “workout of Judas”.
