“Brazil’s President Jair Bolsonaro has appealed to truckers protesting against Sunday’s election results to clear the roads and protest elsewhere.

Supporters of the far-right [their description, not mine] president have erected hundreds of roadblocks across Brazil since it was announced that Mr Bolsonaro’s left-wing rival Lula won the election.

Mr Bolsonaro said blocking roads was not a part of ‘legitimate’ protests.

He encouraged people to choose other ways of demonstrating.”
