Dr Zoë Marriage argues that Jair Bolsonaro’s victory in Brazil’s recent elections hinges on a political rhetoric that legitimises anger and violence. This is symbolised in the fatal stabbing of a leading capoeirista on the first night of the election, an event which brought together the diverse global capoeira community, whose origins are firmly rooted in the discourse of struggle and resistance against precisely the nationalist and fascist propaganda of Brazil’s new President.
