Brazil’s ousted ex-President Dilma Rousseff says far-right, anti-woman, anti-black populism is on the rise in the country in the wake of her impeachment in 2016. ow.ly/NOWp30jB5yn See MoreSee Less

Dilma Rousseff: Brazil's far right returns

 

Comment on Facebook

I know people in Brazil, this is all lies.

What a coincidence. That sounds just like the US.

Ousted by the left in 2016"?

I’m anti-rich. No one needs a yearly income of more than 250K. Do you and Lula agree? You both should have tried to emulate Jose Mujica, your neighbor. He is a leader because he lives like us.

Dilma combateu a corrupção sempre esteve do lado do povo mais pobre. Porém o parlamento que é formado por uma quadrilha de bandido boicotou e criou argumentos para sair da presidência.
Hoje então temos um governo usurpador do poder que comprovadamente é um bandido que foi flagrado negociando malas de dinheiro por intermédio de Rodrigo Rocha Loures. Seu parceiro no golpe parlamentar contra Dilma foi o dep. Cunha que hoje encontra preso após promover o golpe.
Agora o maior líder que o Brasil já teve o Senhor Luis Inácio Lula da Silva esta preso por um processo fraudulento, uma armação sem provas que condenou a prisão.

I am feminist, hear me whine.

Great WOMAN !!!

She is an incredible scumbag.

It’s funded by the uncle, and its in the whole of Latin America

Isn’t Brazil a weird-ass movie from the 80’s?

Not a surprise. Seems all the countries on the entire planet are moving to the right

Nobody wants the far left, even Brazilians.

very good interview…. amazing that the far right is able to get away with this..

Nobody cares if economy was down hill and corruption a must

To repeat, President Dilma, Give ‘them’ Hell & Damn the Torpedoes. zioNists Neocon Americans were behind the Clandestine Coup against the Ex-President. Rousseff for President.

#voltaDilma #LulaLivre

Brazil.is being a nightmare!

US role in interfering in other countries.

I’m so very sad to say this, science fall short, bring the religious fear back to naive, ignorant to obey.

Just like USA.gov

SO A MOBILIZAÇÃO POPULAR PODE LIBERTAR LULA E DERROTAR O GOLPE NO BRASIL O CANALHA GOLPISTA TEMER SO SE SUSTENTA CO A TUTELA DOS MILITARES E DA EXTREMA DIREITA FASCISTA E A MIDIA CORRUPTA E UMA JUSTIÇA SELETIVA E FEKE NEWS QUE MANIPULA IMBECIL POLITICOS

All true, this is a honest ex-Brazilian president, a fighter, something very rare in the whole American continent. She was deposed because all Brazilian criminal politician could not carry on with their corruption crimes with her, a decent person, around them and in control. Now the same criminal politicians, illegally, sent to prison ex president Lula, the only president, in the Brazilian history, who really fought poverty, racism and discrimination against women, native and black Brazilian.

Arizona: Activist freed from ICE detention

Did she break a law punishable by confinement? Why the hell is she out then?

That’s why it’s a mistake to put political prisoners in jail: like criminal prisoners, their education is furthered, and they come out more capable than when they went in. From individual activism they often go on to organized protest and encourage widespread participation. They create networks that lead to massive demonstrations across the country.

I guess it is a victory of a kind. A real victory will be when people are no longer imprisoned or harrassed for nonviolent so called offenses of any kind.

yay!

Amen you advocates!!! Keep up the fight!!!! Joy !!!!!

Released because of public out cry…I dont think so
