RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - From the roadside, Maria, a 61-year-old fruit vendor, has seen street traffic increase since Thursday, August 13th. The black cars, escorted by ambulances, vans, and motorcycles, as well as the hooded men who stopped traffic for the motorcade to pass, and the unusual buzzing of helicopters, attracted attention.
These were the preparations for the arrival of Jair Bolsonaro in the city of Barra dos Coqueiros, located thirty kilometers . . .
