Brazil September 7th – “Society Against Corruption”

Posted by democraciarealbrasil on 09/07/201

This year, we Brazilians, decided to switch the Independence Day parade by a democracy celebration. In 22 cities over 17 states around the country, thousands of indignants took the streets to march and shout against the political corruption that is devastating the country.

Since last June, corporate media and the government have escalated a campaign to undermine protests by focusing on isolated acts of “vandalism” that accompany street demonstrations, which have been otherwise largely peaceful considering the levels of violence Brazilians face in their daily lives....

For President Rousseff and her mentor, ex-President Lula DaSilva, the entire economy must be directed to gaining the 'confidence' of the capitalist class..."
