Employers associations, labor unions and social movements organized events across Brazil on Thursday to affirm democracy in the face of right-wing President Jair Bolsonaro’s attacks on the voting system less than two months before general elections.

The centerpiece of the mobilization was a gathering at the University of Sao Paulo (USP) law school where speakers read from manifestos denouncing “unfounded” claims that electronic voting is not trustworthy.
