Election campaign in Brazil: Brazil's ex-president Lula dances with indigenous people

A few weeks before the presidential elections in Brazil, former head of state and leftist favorite Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva visited the Amazon metropolis of Manaus. There, the ex-president (2003-2010) also danced with indigenous women, as shown on Globo television.

The diversity of the Amazon should be properly explored and exploited, Lula said at the meeting with indigenous and social movement leaders. The aim is to create prosperity for the peoples of the region and benefits for all people in the world.

In early October, Lula challenges right-wing incumbent Jair Bolsonaro in the presidential election. While the former left-wing head of state is now presenting himself as a pioneer for environmental protection, Bolsonaro sees the Amazon region, which is enormously important for the global climate, primarily as an area of ​​economic use. Lula is clearly ahead in the polls. Bolsonaro has recently cast doubt on the electoral system.

Just a few days ago, the incumbent campaigned for farmers' votes at the largest rodeo event in Latin America. He rode a horse through the arena at the cattlemen's festival in Barretos, gave a speech on the importance of the agricultural industry and prayed. In addition to conservative evangelicals and the gun lobby, powerful farmers in Brazil are among Bolsonaro's most important supporters. The ex-military ideology was often described in terms of "bullet, cattle, and the Bible."
