Two Bolsonaro men invaded the Guarulhos campus of the Federal University of São Paulo (Unifesp), last Wednesday (20), and destroyed a panel that was part of the installation “Unifesp shows its art”, which had images of personalities such as philosopher Karl Marx and Rio councilor Marielle Franco.
Using white paint, the Bolsonarists painted the installation’s murals. When the International Relations students noticed, the entire mural was already covered in white.

“They asked if there were images of personalities there, why wasn’t there an image of (former president) Jair Bolsonaro there,” says professor Rodrigo Medina Zagni, head of the Department of International Relations at the Paulista School of Politics at Unifesp.
“The base that supported Bolsonarism is independent of Bolsonaro, other leaders can take advantage of this base, it remains active. In this case, these two can use these images to promote themselves in the next elections”, warns Zagni.
The Military Police were called to the university campus and, despite the evidence and the wall with fresh paint, they refused to take the Bolsonarists to the police station. Regarding the PM’s refusal, Brasil de Fato contacted the Public Security Secretariat of the State of São Paulo (SSP-SP), which did not respond until the closing of this article. If you do so, the text will be updated.

This Friday (22), the university registered a police report against the two Bolsonarists.
The perpetrators of the depredation of the university’s heritage confessed on their social networks that they painted the murals and attacked the personalities honored in the installation. “Someone warns that Marielle has died”, says one of the Bolsonaro supporters, before painting the mural.
To avoid giving visibility to the – confessed – authors of the depredation of the university mural, Brasil de Fato will not disclose the identity and social networks of the Bolsonaro supporters.
