“We condemn today’s attacks against the Presidency, Congress and the Supreme Court of Brazil. The use of force to attack democratic institutions is always unacceptable. We join our voices with @lulaoficial and call for an immediate end to these actions,” said US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken.

“Violence has no place in a democracy,” tweeted US High Commissioner to Brasilia Douglas Koneff. “We strongly condemn the attacks on the institutions of executive, legislative and judicial power in Brasilia, which is also an attack on democracy. There is no justification for such actions,” he added.

“I absolutely condemn the attack on Brazil’s democratic institutions. Full support to President @LulaOficial Da Silva, democratically elected by millions of Brazilians through fair and free elections,” Michel said.
