Supporters of former Brazilian president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva gather at the metalworkers’ union building in Sao Bernardo do Campo, in metropolitan Sao Paulo, Brazil, on April 6, 2018 as the ex-president decides whether to resist an order to surrender and start a 12-year prison sentence for corruption.
The leftist leader has not spoken in public since Thursday when Judge Sergio Moro, head of Brazil’s labyrinthine “Car Wash” anti-graft operation, issued his dramatic order, giving Lula just 24 hours to turn himself in to police in the southern city of Curitiba. / AFP PHOTO / Miguel SCHINCARIOL
