Today brazilian people literally took over the National Congress. Following the people of many other countries such as Turkey and Egypy, with whom we share the same struggle… it’s the brazilian spring uprising.
Many newspapers are sharing only isolated cases of public destruction, when the majority of the protests are actually peaceful and are being censored. There are shock troopers in the streets throwing bombs and pepper spray on non-violent protesters (it even happened with myself…)
Today nearly 500,000 people every where in the country joined the mob in the streets in order to protest against the high taxes we pay in comparison to the terrible public services we get.
Our politicians are very proud to show all over that we are a rich country and that we can spend billions and billions of dollars in stadiums for FIFA world cup while there are people dying in hospital beds all over Brazil because government didn’t send enough money to buy enough meds.
Our children don’t have good public schools, there are still many people dying of starvation, our public transportation is expensive, not effective and often unsafe.
Today our revolution for a better, fair place to live starts and we need the help from people all over the world to show the truth about brazillian protests, something that the corrupted media won’t show…
A rua é nossa, caralho!
