A rally against the dictatorship and in defense of democracy took place at the University of Sao Paulo, Brazil. During the action, politicians, economists, public figures and trade union representatives signed an open letter calling for respect for the electoral system.

According to The Brazilian Report , the appeal has collected over 800,000 signatures.

The public was outraged by the statement of Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, who expressed dissatisfaction with the electronic system for processing ballots during voting. The document says the criticism is unfounded and unsupported by evidence.

Among the protesters was USP Rector Carlos Gilberto Carlotti Junior, who called for the vote to be respected. "

“We want free and peaceful elections, we want an electoral process free of fake news and intimidation,” he said.

Let me remind you that elections in the Latin American country are due on October 2, during which they will elect a president, deputies and senators. In addition, there will be gubernatorial elections. Note that according to the polls, Bolsonaro is inferior in the support of citizens to the former leader of Brazil, Luis Inacio Lula da Silva.
