Thousands march against far-right presidential candidate in Brazil’s Sao Paulo

Thousands of Brazilians have taken to the streets of Sao Paulo to protest against far-right politician Jair Bolsonaro, who has won the the first round of the country’s presidential election.

The protesters on Wednesday marched down the city’s iconic Paulista Avenue against Bolsonaro, who won the first round of Brazil’s presidential election last week but failed to secure the 50 percent of valid ballots needed to avoid a runoff.

Holding banners with anti-fascist slogans, the protesters chanted, “Bolsonaro, my country doesn’t need you” and “Dictatorship never again.”
