Yesterday a Bolsonaro suporter invaded the birthday party of a member of the Workers Party (PT) in Brazil and killed him.
Brazil has a strict firearm control, but you are allowed to have a gun. You must be registered to get a permission and even then, it is forbiden to carry your gun outside of your house. Bolsonaro has said he wanted to allow citizens to carry guns all the time.
His supporter (Jorge) that killed the PT member works as prison guard and therefore, unlike citizens that are not cops, he can carry guns all the time.
This guy was driving somewhere when he passed near the party. Marcelo - the member of the workers party - was outside and the man pointed a gun at the people screaming fascist slogans associiated with Bolsonaro and said he would come back to kill everyone there. (At the moment he had his wife and kid in the car)
No one believed he would come back, but Marcelo, who worked as a municipal guard, decided to keep his gun just in case. When Jorge returned, Marcelo told him to freeze but Jorge shot him in his knee and he felt. When the fascist approched to execute him, he was able to shoot back 5 times before the second bullet killed him.
It’s unclear if the fascist survived, hopefully he didn’t. When I have more info I will edit it here.
If Marcelo didnt shot back at the guy I wouldn’t be reporting a murder but a massacre. USA style. This is not the first time someone was killed by fascists in Brasil and I doubt it will be the last one.
Bolsonaro has shown many signs that he won’t accept defeat in the elections and that he is ready for a coup. Most people that still supports this guys are completely lost in their ideology and are willing to do anything to “preserve their way of life”. In 2018 fascism was growing in Brasil, but today, even though Bolsonaro lost support, fascists are more radicalized than before and willing to do even more derranged shit, like the one reported above. Things will probably get worse as the election comes closer and the Brazilian left will need to create strategies to defend themselves and avoid a coup.
If you don’t know anything about Brasil I made a Gigapost about it a while ago and I’m writing part 2. I want to finish it as soon as possible but I have a lot of things to do right now and it will have to wait, since it’s about imperialism and therefore it might interest you guys more than the first part so I wanna do it right.

This is a Dengist community in favor of Bashar al-Assad with no information that can lead to the arrest of Hillary Clinton, our fellow liberal and queen. This community is not ironic. We are Marxists-Leninists.
If you haven’t already found it, this GitHub page is an excellent collection of sources about socialism, imperialism, and other relevant topics, made by @dessalines and others.

Rest in peace Marcelo and thank you for fighting to stop this monster from hurting more innocent people, truly a badass.
Also thank you for your big post, very interesting read, always happy to learn more about the world outside this plastic cage.
Comrade, I’m thinking of using your Gigaposts to populate a ProleWiki article on Brazil. By the way, if you wish to contribute with it, feel free to join me, right now I’m working alone on the Portuguese section before it becomes presentable, and after that (months from now) I will post content on Twitter to attract more users and editors
Sure! I’ll contribute how I can in this wiki ( I didn’t know about it). I just wanna point out that I’m new to marxism and I’ve been writing these Gigaposts as a way for me to study and understand better the concepts/country I’m studying. I’m also from STEM area, not humanities, so I’ll probably write some wrong things (That’s why I try to make most of the gigapost is descriptive and not really an analysis/opinion) and it would be better if someone more qualified could review these contributions to the wiki
EDIT: I can translate them if you want to
There’s no problem with that. I write in ProleWiki to research and study about many subjects as well. The best thing is the results of my research becomes available for every one to see in the site, so I’m not the only one benefiting from my studies
No problem as well, the articles we write can all be changed. If you write anything that needs a correction, it’s very easy to do so.
You can help in many ways, even sharing ProleWiki to Brazilian comrades you know, because I honestly can’t do this alone
Suave mano, assim que eu tiver uma folga vou escrever algo lá, mas nesse meio tempo vou espalhando aqui
Grato, camarada. Tamo precisando de mais brasileiros pra contribuir lá, acho que aqui não tem muitos. Não faço ideia de onde podemos recrutá-los
Nem eu. A maioria que conheço não mexe muito com essas coisas, mas vou tentar espalhar mesmo assim
