Marisa condemns attempted aggression against Ventura: “Hate cannot be defeated with violence”

Marisa Matias has already reacted to André Ventura’s attempted aggression this Thursday in Setúbal. The Chega leader was received by demonstrators who threw stones, lighters, water bottles and eggs at him, and a presidential candidate supported by BE was quick to condemn what happened. “Hate is not defeated with violence,” he wrote on Twitter.

“We are a better country than the extreme right candidate and we will be able to win it in the democratic struggle,” added the blockist MEP, without considering the origin of the protest.

Sunday’s presidential campaign has been marked by several controversial episodes with the Chega leader always at his epicenter. One of them, remember, happened in Portalegre when Ventura attacked Marisa Matias for wearing red lipstick, “as if it were a joke thing”. The insult generated a wave of national and international solidarity – #vermelhoembelem -, to which people from different sectors of society took action.
