Thousands of protesters marched in Sao Paulo on Monday, rallying against Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro under the slogan 'dictatorship never again!'

One protester, Adelaide, went as far as to say that Bolsonaro was worse than Nazi Germany leader Adolf Hitler and former Italian leader Benito Mussolini. "I think the Bolsonaro should end up hanging upside down like Mussolini because what he's doing is bad for all mankind," she added.

The protesters exhibited numerous banners denouncing the president, which they claim is introducing dictatorship in the country.

On Monday, Bolsonaro gave a televised interview to drum up support for proposed new laws, which aim to protect from prosecution security forces and citizens who shoot alleged offenders. The proposed legislation, along with his comments reportedly likening criminals to cockroaches during the interview, have triggered outrage in Brazil's opposition, reports say.
