Brazil: Men invade studio and threaten to attack broadcaster who criticized Bolsonaro

"Four unidentified men invaded a radio studio located in the municipality of Santa Cruz do Capibaribe, in Agreste de Pernambuco, [Brazil], on Tuesday night (April 6, 2021). On the occasion, the men, who declare themselves supporters of President Jair Bolsonaro, threatened to attack radio broadcaster Júnior Albuquerque after he criticized the federal government's health policy in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic.

'We do an opinion program every Tuesday at Rádio Comunidade, in Santa Cruz. A few weeks ago, almost 300,000 deaths due to COVID-19 in Brazil were part of the news stories (at the time we had not yet surpassed this sad mark) and I did a opinionated comment, where I stated that in my view, Hitler was not the only guilty party for the genocide that happened in Germany, because those who supported him and those who were silent also had their share of blame. As in Brazil, in relation to COVID-19, Bolsonaro voters who agree with the health policy he had been doing, were also to be blamed and history was going to say that,' broadcaster Júnior Albuquerque, explained in an interview with JC."
