Abilio Brunini (PL-MT) interrupted the commission to demand that posters about “genocide against Palestinians” be removed
Federal deputy Abilio Brunini (PL-MT) was escorted by the Legislative Police out of the Human Rights Commission of the Chamber of Deputies this Wednesday (8.Nov.2023) after interrupting the session that dealt with the war between Israel and the group extremist Hamas.
The confusion began after Brunini demanded the removal of posters on which phrases such as “no to the occupation of Gaza” It is “Down with the Israeli genocide against the Palestinians”.
In videos taken at the scene, it is possible to see the deputy being taken out of the session while other congressmen present shout words like “fascist” It is “intruder”.
The commission, whose theme was “Humanitarian crisis in the Gaza Strip”, started at 2:40 pm this Wednesday (Nov 8). In the records made, a Palestinian flag appears resting on the session’s table. Despite the incident, the meeting continued with the planned debate.
“The posters on the table do not detract from any state, they show the cruel, inhumane and cowardly genocide practiced by one state against another. This is a peaceful movement in defense of a people who are harassed, massacred and raped.”said federal deputy Érika Hilton (PSol-SP) to Power360.
A second part of the session, this time with Israel’s perspective on the war, was also scheduled to take place today, but was canceled after the place was emptied due to the confusion.
The president of the Commission, Zé Silva (Solidariedade-MG), committed to holding the hearing if a new request is made.
