According to the text, there will be no office hours on the Esplanada dos Ministérios due to security measures for the area. “It is up to the heads of bodies and entities, in their respective areas of competence, to ensure the full preservation and operation of services considered essential or strategic, including those related to the holding of the Civic-Military Parade event on the occasion of the Commemorations of the Bicentennial of the Independence of Brazil ”, says part of the publication.
After a series of meetings and planning, the Secretary of Public Security of the Federal District (SSP-DF) decided that trucks will not be able to enter the Esplanada dos Ministérios or approach the Federal Supreme Court (STF) on September 7. The folder coordinates security actions for the commemorative date.
The intention is to prevent demonstrations like those of 2021 from taking place. At the time, Bolsonarist groups broke through the police blockade and approached the Supreme Court. The truck drivers stayed at the site for about a week, which caused tension in the Praça dos Três Poderes.
The decision was taken after six months of meetings with the STF and aims to avoid damage to public buildings or threats to authorities.
The STF included the date as a “high risk” situation, due to the protests called by the current President of the Republic, Jair Bolsonaro (PL). Thus, the Public Security Secretariat prohibited the entry of any type of vehicle on the Esplanade during the event. There will be roadblocks at several locations to prevent hostile protesters from entering.
If truck drivers want to participate in the civic event, they will be redirected. In 2021, the main demands of the protests were the adoption of the printed vote and the dismissal of ministers from the Federal Supreme Court (STF). According to unofficial estimates, 400,000 people passed through the Esplanade during the acts.
