On Wednesday, March 3, 2021. The country counted more than 1850 new deaths in the lapse of 24 hours, registring a new record since the beginning of the pandemic.

Residents of Sao Paulo, Rio, Belo Horizonte, Recife, Salvador and Porto Alegre protested Wednesday night against the current President of Brazil, Jair Bolsonaro(independent). Chanting "Fora, Genocida!" (translates to "Out, genocidal!") and "Fora, Bolsonaro!" (translates to "Out, Bolsonaro!"), residents protested in all parts of the Brazilian cities. The entire state of Sao Paulo, with a record of hospitalizations, immediately reentered the most restrictive tier of quarantine, the red tier.

Now, Brazilian Democratic institutions and citizens are calling for the prompt impeachment (both removal and conviction) of sitting President Jair Bolsonaro. #Fora_Bolsonaro #Fora_Genocida
