    A court ruled that the critical cartoons of President Jair Bolsonaro (PSL) and his government–censored by the Porto Alegre City Council at the beginning of the month– can be displayed again to the public.

    The injunction mandates that the cartoons be “returned promptly” to the same space and for the same twelve days previously provided.

    When it first opened, “Laughter is Risk: Independence at Risk – Humor Drawings” lasted less than 24 hours. The exhibit was only seen at the venue between 7 pm Monday (2) and early Tuesday afternoon (3) when it was shut down the mayor, Councilor Monica Leal (PP). It was supposed to be exhibited until September 13 but it was censored.
