In the years of government of the current president, Jair Bolsonaro, there was no celebration for Brazil's independence. Last year, he used the date that should represent the citizens of the country, for political purposes by attacking the institutions with coup messages that put democracy at risk.
That is why 200 years later, Bolsonaro is still trying to capitalize on the event on the eve of the elections because of the heroism often associated with the independence movement.
The ultra-right-wing leader negotiated a loan with the Government of Portugal on the occasion of the bicentennial of independence, where he intends to make political capital out of it.
Bolsonaro has called on his followers to take to the streets tomorrow, and it could become a show of force in the final stretch of the current president's electoral campaign.
After 200 years, Brazil is once again at a crossroads, to be more modern or more just and finally activate its potential for the good of all or go back even further into the past.
