Some came to their windows wielding saucepans; others armed with nothing but their voice.

“Fora Bolsonaro!” (“Get out, Bolsonaro!”) they yelled into the darkness, as fellow dissenters pounded pots and pans with wooden spoons as a way of venting their spleen against Brazil’s far-right president.

. . .

Janette Bessa Neves, a retired sociologist who lives in the same area, said she had also felt the wind of change. “The middle and upper-middle classes have woken up,” the 69-year-old said.

Ventura, like many pan-bangers, said he had felt a powerful sensation of catharsis as he pummelled his pan above the streets of Ipanema. “It was soul-cleansing stuff,” he said.
