Portuguese far-right party postpones extremist summit amid harassment | Euractiv

“‘In respect for many of [the summit’s] guests, especially North Americans and recently the former President of Brazil Jair Bolsonaro and his entourage, who have been prevented from travelling by the Brazilian state, Chega has decided to reschedule the summit for a later date,” Chega leader André Ventura said, according to Euractiv, speaking of the event originally scheduled for May 13 and 14.

Ventura added this: “We will organise it again with more strength and more firmness because we know that the future is not socialism, the future is the right governing their nations with respect for their identity, their traditions and promoting the growth and prosperity that our citizens expect,” according to Euractiv.
