Supporters of President Jair Bolsonaro will take to the streets Tuesday in hundreds of cities across Brazil for a high-risk national holiday -- but opponents of the far-right leader are hoping to frustrate him with massive counter-protests.

As per news report of NDTV, The pro- and anti-Bolsonaro demonstrations will make for an unpredictable Brazilian Independence Day. The president, who is fighting record-low poll numbers and seeking to fire up his base, has stated that "gigantic" crowds will turn out to support him. Critics, however, will also turn out, likely chanting "Fora Bolsonaro!" ("Bolsonaro Out!") as they march. The counter-protesters are worried about potential threats to democracy posed by Bolsonaro, 66, who has declared all-out political war on justices -- including on the Supreme Court -- whom he perceives as hostile to his agenda. Heavy security measures have been implemented in major cities including Brasilia and Sao Paulo, to avoid any clashes, and if everything goes according to plan the two groups of protesters will not cross paths.
