    In case you haven’t heard (and howcould you not?), next Sunday, Aug 16, there will be more protests,nation-wide.

    I wonder if this time people will bringtorches and pitch forks, rather than useless placards and banners? Evil Smile

    I doubt this protest will get any traction. Some PT radicals might toss sume firebombs and blame the opposition. Some busses and cars will burn.
    Dilma will stay as along as Lula tells her to.

    Call me a cynic but nothing will come of these. I actually haven’t heard about them this time.

    There is also a march from the members of the Lula Foundation on the same day in SP, in another area. Rent-a-mob agitators who will no doubt be intent on mischief!

    Much as I don’t like it, political reform in this country needs to impact those who control reform. Until they start to feel inconvenienced, and even scared, nothing much will change. As I once read in context of Socialist Weekly sellers changing the world with each copy sold

    ‘Can you load a magazine or only sell them?’

    Just as I expected… no torches or pitch forks, just lots of green and yellow clothing. Protesto contra Dilma reuniu 135 mil.

    More Fuel for the masses!

    Brazil’s President Dilma Rousseff has left the U.S territory without paying for V.I.P presidential Limousine services provided in San Francisco.

    VEJA has the story, with a headline of a 100K “calote.”

    The arrogance of using the flag, and its colors, yellow and green, in a manifestation against Dilma, is beyond reason. But then what’s to be expected of middle-class brown nosers? As if they are the only patriotic ones, the best representatives of Brazil, and Dilma and PT are not Brazilian at all. Ah me poupe neh? Protest corruption and taxation, if they must, but leave the super patriotic arrogance out of it. They are not the only Brazilians, and certainly not more “Brazilian” than the PT and its supporters. Of course they’re looking out for numero um, themselves, and could care less if a favelado has a fridge, a TV, or a car. Same old crap, unfortunately, a society can’t be fixed by pitting some against others, or entirely neglecting half of it.

    Their message with the flag and its colors is clear: We are the real Brazilians, Dilma, the PT, and its supporters are not, we want to “take back Brazil”. The Republicans and other American right-wingers try to play the same game: “We are the real Americans, Democrats, leftists, liberals, etc. are not. They hate America, they’re not real Americans, they’re pussies, commies, Euro-lovers, etc. etc.” It’s funny how nationalism and the right wing are always in bed with each other, no matter what country they find themselves in.

    Everyone thinks their party is the true party that will make the country great, hence why we have parties. If you don’t think your party is the best then why support it, both sides feel that one, not just the right.

    Brazilians have often donned the country’s colours to protest – I don’t read much into it tbh, but it looks nice on overhead photos to see a sea of Green and Yellow.
