A protester was run over on Saturday, 2, while participating in the act against the president Jair Bolsonaro no Recife, capital of Pernambuco. According to councilwoman Dani Portela (PSOL), who said she was called to help the woman, she was bleeding heavily and hurt. “I came here to make an urgent complaint. At the end of the ‘Fora Bolsonaro’ act, when the act was coming to an end, I received a call, a call for help. A protester was run over and dragged by a car. I ran here, she was still lying on the ground, bleeding a lot, injured… This is absurd”, said the congresswoman in a video.
Also according to Dani, people who were at the scene and testified reported that the driver had purposely run her over. “He reportedly advanced towards the protesters and dragged her for about 50 meters,” he said. She also stated that she already has the license plate data, the driver’s name and that she will request that the arrest be served. The protester was rescued by teams from the Fire Department and the Mobile Assistance Service (Samu). THE Young pan contacted the Fire Department, the Military Police and the Municipality of Traffic and Urban Transport of Recife (CTTU), but has not yet received any feedback.
URGENT! A demonstrator was run over in front of Armazém do Campo, at the end of the Fora Bolsonaro act. We demand rigorous investigation of the fact, which violates the right to free expression. pic.twitter.com/b9vif8mjQg
