I see that Lula, ex-President of Brazil, has been freed from prison while his appeal goes through the courts.
This is on foot of a constitutional court order that has freed several thousand prisoners in a similar situation.
I wonder whether this will have any effect on last year's court decision to prohibit Lula from running in last year's presidential elections?
Certainly among his supporters, it will strengthen the belief that he was imprisoned to stop him from running against Bolsonaro - using legal process that has become known as lawfare.
Among them are politicians such as Bernie Sanders, Jeremy Corbyn, Cristina Kirchner, Pepe Mújica, François Hollande, Anne Hidalgo, as well as Nobel Peace Prizewinners Kailash Satyarthi, Adolfo Pérez Esquivel, and Barcelona's Mayor, Ada Colau.
It is generally accepted that he would have beaten Bolsonaro in the elections, which many believe is why he was imprisoned.
At the start of his regime, Bolsonaro, who won with 55% of the vote, had 20% who saw him as "Bad or Awful", 40% as "Good or Great", with 40% as Neutral or Don't Know.
Now those numbers are 34%, 31%, and 35% . Like Trump, the shine has worn off, though some still hold out hopes, and no doubt he has his fanatical supporters. He also has millions of bankers' and industrialists' money behind him.
It is good that Lula can provide a focus for the Brazilian Opposition, something lacking in the US.
