Antigua and Barbuda Prime Minister condemns assault on Democracy in Brazil

St. John’s, January 8…   The Government of Antigua and Barbuda has condemned the storming of the Congress in Brazil by supporters of the country’s former, leader, Jair Bolsonaro.

Prime Minister Gaston Browne also denounced the actions of right-wing groups who surrounded the Supreme Court and the Presidential Palace.

The Antigua and Barbuda Prime Minister said, “Mr. Bolsonaro lost the Presidential election, found to be free and fair by Observers from international organizations, including the Organization of American States, and the will of the electorate must be fully respected”.

“These attacks on institutions of government by groups, seeking to overturn the results are assaults on democracy, which will not be tolerated by the governments and peoples of the Hemisphere”,  Prime Minister Browne stressed.

“The Government of Antigua and Barbuda stands in support of democratically-elected President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva and his government, and we will make this position clear at the OAS and at the UN, in the coming days,” the Prime Minister added.

  1. Very interesting speech from our – current – Prime Minister. It’s very rare that I agree with him, but I will hold judgement until I see how he, the ABLP and his supporters react when they lose the General Election on the 18th of January 2023.

    If he goes quietly and disappears into the ether, that’s all well and good for the future of my beloved country – I can’t see it though, especially if Asot Michael is within range for a good left hook 🥊

    However, I welcome his forthright words about upholding democracy in Brazil – any right thinking person wants a peaceful change and stability especially after an election win (or a loss in Gaston’s case).


  2. You should tell cutie about respecting people’s choice to support whatever party they choose rather than victimising workers in his ministry for supporting the upp

    • Typical Cutie, if the allegations are true, that is not democracy and you got to go. Totally unacceptable. We live in a free country….we should not be victimized or retaliated against for exercising our democratic rights. Time for you to go home Cutie..your days are numbered.

  4. Hope you, Gaston Alphonso Browne will echo these same sentiments and condemnation come on or after 18/01/2023.

  5. Wait, isn’t this the same government that tear gassed ah peaceful march of its citizens & residents? They believe in democracy; since when?

  6. Don’t believe everything you see on the “news”. So-called Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez’s funeral was attended by millions. In Brazil, when they had an event to protest Bolsonaro’s election loss there wasn’t room to hold them so “democratically elected” doesn’t always mean selected by the majority. A former high ranking US general admitted that they know how to rig elections. “It’s not he who casts the votes but he who counts them that matters”

    • 💯% correct @ not so fast…
      The WEF’s puppet Lula was selected to carry out the agenda of the NWO/Great Reset. Expect the same result in Antiguas upcoming election as the ABLP’s leader has already signed on to be one of the vassals.

  7. Gaston Browne you seems to have a very short memory of convenience. Last year August,you trampled on the Democratic Rights of The People. Remember those tear gas and rubber bullets used on that Sunday Evening. When you sent home Government Employees for not taking the JAB or no JOB. Did you trample on the Democratic Rights of those involved? Cannot wait to see you fall from your egotistical condescending horse.Then again your head is big and fat.You would not feel one damn thing.

  8. This man is an unconscionable liar and hypocrite. Did he not publicly say that he respects people’s rights and then turned around and mandated poisonous jabs? Just looking relevance. Like @Brix said, will he go quietly into the night when he loses? History says a resounding NO. I will believe nothing this clown says.
