Although a rise in the Covid-19 pandemic, Christians in Brazil protested against the restrictions on Church services. Around 500 evangelical Christian and conservative Catholic protesters marched to the seat of Congress in Brasilia, where they held an outdoor prayer service.

The “Christian Family Freedom March” came after the High Court ruled in a 9-2 decision that regional officials have the right to suspend worship services, at a moment when the Covid-19 infection is killing thousands of people a day in Brazil.
Carrying signs and banners with messages such as “Happy is the nation whose God is the Lord” and “Down with the Supreme Court,” evangelical Christian and conservative Catholic protesters marched to the seat of Congress in Brasilia.
The Covid-19 pandemic has killed more than 350,000 people in Brazil, second only to the United States.
