Bolsonaro supporter vandalises Brazil beach memorial to coronavirus victims
A beach memorial to Brazil’s coronavirus victims has been vandalised by a supporter of the country’s far-right president Jair Bolsonaro. Brazilians critical of their government’s response to the Covid-19 pandemic dug 100 shallow graves marked with black crosses in the sand of Rio’s Copacabana beach on Thursday to symbolise the country’s lives lost to the disease. The tribute, organised by non-governmental organisation Rio de Paz, came in protest as Brazil’s death toll from the coronavirus crisis topped 40,000, while cases surpassed 800,000.
