Protests erupted in Brazil against President Bolsonaro's government as demonstrators demanded his impeachment. The protesters were angry over Bolsonaro'shandling of the coronavirus crisis. Large crowds gathered in Brasilia, Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro with several shouting "Bolsonaro out!" Some protesters accused Bolsanaro of destroying the economy which has been hit by inflation and high fuel prices.

In the US, nearly 10,000 people rallied in a square near the White House against ‘inhumane’ and ‘discriminatory’ anti-abortion rules. Many people also brought out creative jackets on which they stitched names and pictures of several other women activists and politicians who have supported the right to abort in the past.
