I was at the Brazilian independence day celebrations in Brasilia 2021

I was at the Brazilian independence day celebrations in Brasilia the capital of Brazil and a lot of Brazilians are very passionate and proud of their country and the crowd was massive and the celebrations was also turned into a pro president Bolsonaro protest as well and I don't want to go into Brazilian politics, enjoy the pictures and videos and below is some history about the Brazilian independence I copied from Wikipedia

The Independence Day of Brazil commonly called Sete de Setembro (Seventh of September is a national holiday observed in Brazil on 7 September of every year. The date celebrates Brazil's Declaration of Independence from the United Kingdom of Portugal, Brazil, and the Algarves on 7 September 1822.

In 1808, French troops commanded by Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte invaded Portugal as a retaliation for the Iberian country's refusal to participate in the trade embargo against the United Kingdom. Fleeing persecution, the Portuguese monarchs transferred the Portuguese Court from Lisbon to Rio de Janeiro, then capital of Colonial Brazil. In 1815, Prince Regent John VI created the United Kingdom of Portugal, Brazil, and the Algarves, elevating Brazil to the rank of kingdom and increasing its administrative independence. Brazil, Portugal, and Great Britain were the three major contributors to the Independence of Brazil all three motivated by the circumstances peculiar to each.[1] Brazil's Independence was ultimately won through diplomacy after three years of war against Portugal

political revolution erupted in Portugal in 1820, forcing the royal family to return. John VI's heir, Pedro, Prince of Brazil, remained in Brazil. In 1821, the Portuguese Assembly demanded Brazil to return to its former condition of colony and the return of the heir prince to Portugal. Pedro, influenced by the Rio de Janeiro Senate (Senado da C├ómara) refused to return on 9 January 1822, a date which became known as Dia do Fico (I'll Stay Day)
