Man knocks over crosses on Brazil's symbolic COVID-19 'graveyard' beach

Man knocks over crosses on Brazil's symbolic COVID-19 'graveyard' beach

(1:11) A supporter of Brazil's far-right president Jair Bolsonaro knocks over crosses erected as a protest against the country's high coronavirus death toll. Earlier, protesters had dug 100 symbolic shallow graves on Rio de Janeiro's Copacabana beach to symbolise the now more than 40,000 COVID-19 deaths in Brazil. Coronavirus has emerged as a political issue in Brazil. Bolsonaro has played down the dangers of the pandemic, replaced medical experts in the Health Ministry with military officials, and argued against state lockdowns to fight the virus .

The Guardian is a pretty left-wing source. And this video has been edited as such. I'd consider myself left of centre, and I'm very against desecration of graves. But these graves are symbolic. A way of putting a point across. By pulling them down, he's putting HIS point across. Yet this video doesn't show his point of view, it just says "He's a supporter of Bolsonaro's far-right, fucked-up, death causing views". It would be nice to see an unedited, translated video, of exactly what he's so upset about. Understanding is the first step towards conciliation. Painting somebody as a bad guy just creates more hate.

I do not agree with this interpretation. For me, the video did not take a stance but allowed me to think. I showed both sides.
