Misinformation Alert: Potential Political Violence in Brazil

With Brazil’s Independence Day approaching, the country is expected to experience political violence as a result of ongoing misinformation campaigns connected to upcoming elections.

In this alert, ActiveFence provides Trust & Safety teams with the context of these campaigns including how:

  • The narratives in these trends are present across a variety of social media platforms and channels
  • The trends are largely grassroots in nature, spurred on by organizers of protests rather than politicians
  • The planned protests on September 7 are the second year in a row that the country’s Independence Day would be marked by demonstrations and violence

Download the brief to understand the ongoing campaigns and learn how you can prepare.
