Skirts Blackouts With Heat Wave to Test Grid Again Around 10,000 police officers have been deployed to prevent riots in Brasilia, where Bolsonaro supporters will hold

pro-government rallies following an Independence Day military parade. An anti-drone electronic barrier was also installed to protect the court’s headquarters, a building a few

blocks down from where demonstrations are expected to take place, two people with direct knowledge of the matter said, requesting anonymity to discuss sensitive

information.  Bolsonaro, who is running for re-election, has called on his supporters to attend the event, which will be followed by pro-government demonstrations. For more

than two hours, army soldiers with war tanks paraded through Brasilia’s main thoroughfare, along with students from public schools, and representatives from the agriculture sector

driving tractors.  Trailing former President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva in polls less than a month before the vote, the incumbent is betting on a large show of popular

support to boost his stagnated campaign.
