2016 Political Crisis in Brazil


Recommended Posts

Blablablabla the same old fairy tales. Good thing we're in the 21th century and most people already knows better.

Everything was done in a legal way, using instruments which are stated at the constitution. Enough of this whining and accept at once you guys fucked up badly instead of putting the blame on something else like little kids.

The world knows: this is a ridiculous coup attempt in Brazil, led by conservative white men.
INDEPENDENT (TODAY):
Dilma Rousseff's impeachment was led by the white, wealthy men who
now make up the Brazilian cabinet
Brazil is among the most diverse countries on earth. Not since the last dictatorship has a Brazilian government been so unrepresentative of its people

THE NEW YORK TIMES:

"Ms. Rousseff is right to question the motives and moral authority of

the politicians who are seeking to oust her. "

A comparison of the government led by Dilma Rousseff and the interim government of Michel Temer:

Abolition of the Ministry of Women, Racial Equality and Human Rights, and the incorporation of the Ministry of Culture into the Ministry of Education — an evidence that Temer plans to roll back years of gains for Brazilian cultural diversity and the promotion of human rights.

Hey FAAN, are you happy?

FAAN Hey , are you happy ?

Happy wouldn't be the right word. I don't like Temer and I didn't vote for him, people like you did.

I'm just glad that the constitution is being respected since one of the crimes that the president is being accused is Fiscal Irresponsability and she will be judged for that.

And about the incorporation of Ministry of Culture back to the MEC, I think that was right choice since we need economic reforms, expenditures cuts and we don't need rich artists and bloggers being paid with public money to defend ANY government.

I wouldn't fear much about your allegedly 'Temer plans to roll back years of gains for Brazilian cultural diversity and the promotion of human rights'. Brazil is one of the few countries in the world that recognize same sex marriage in all national territory and many other aspects of individual freedom that I'm completely in favor. All LGBT rights are guaranteed by the Constituion and the Supreme Court (just like the Impeachment), so it can't be changed.

In fact, Temer's groups presented hundreds of pages with economic and social proposals and not even a single line is about conservative policies related to LGBT groups.

Another interesting fact (just an example) is that the current Minister of Foreign Affairs, José Serra, is well known in Brazil for being the creator of an innovative program of free distribution of anti-HIV medicines giving appropriate treatment against HIV when homossexuals were the most affected group and nobody cared about (20 years ago).

I don't know about FAAN but i am. Temer need to do something to reduce the the hole that Dilma put us. At least he has the courage to change things. He is not acaccmodated and will not lie about our situation. The changes are necessary to reduce public costs and the less important ministries have to be sacrificed. And I don't see the problem in have no woman or black people. If everyone are equal, why Temer have to chose a black man instead of white? This is racism to me.

Do you really think that in such a large group of people not even one black person or women was suited to cover a position and we should think it's by pure coincidence?

Of course it won't be changed, he wouldn't do something so obvious and that could have enormous negative impact on his image. The question is, will his government continue to promote progressive policies regardings human rights and cultural diversity in the future?

Amigo, o que você ainda está fazendo aqui tentando conversar com uma fauna de coxinhas e uma criatura ressentida que acha que o país quebrado dele é igual ao Brasil? Não há honestidade nesta discussão! Já estão colocando na sua conta que as bombas do Temer são culpa sua por ter eleito-o vice, quando, na verdade, ele está empregando justamente o programa da oposição fracassada que não vence eleições neste país e precisa de golpe pra assumir o poder. Poupe-se.

A government must be have capacitated people to be efficient. Meanwhile, there are some people are fixed on sex or skin color.
Indignation is very selective in some people, whilst the country has its economy falling apart with 11 million of unemployed people, the only target of indignation is the skin color and sex of the ministers or the incorporation of the Ministry of Culture into the MEC.

In fact, I hope his government succeeds in reverting the crisis. So far, his proposals and acts as president have been satisfactory.

THE GUARDIAN, about the ridiculous white Coup in Brazil:


Captura_de_Tela_2016_05_15_s_18_50_44.pn



Brazil’s image as a socially liberal, multi-ethnic democracy may always have been more myth than reality, but any lingering illusions of this type have been swept away by interim president Michel Temer’s appointment of the country’s first all-male cabinet since the end of dictatorship in1985.


After conspiring to suspend Brazil’s first female president, his former running mate Dilma Rousseff, the 75-year-old patrician quickly showed his conservative instincts with a mostly white lineup of ministers that also included a soy baron in charge of agriculture, and a finance minister who immediately declared the need for sweeping cuts.

When a big part of the population are white, so yes, it's a coincidence. I hate the idea of a forced diversity like the stupid cota thing we have in the universities. They have to be there by merit, not to just have a colored government. About the woman, there are not many in politics unfortunately and this problem is not exclusive to Brazil.

Just a quick search of cabinets from other south american countries:

Argentina - 3 women

Bolivia - 6 women

Chile - 7 women

Paraguay - 3 women

Peru - 8 women

Uruguay - 5 women

Venezuela - 8 women

Yes. And by coincidence, only white men are competent in Brazil :ph34r:
This not about competence, baby. This is only the face of the Brazilian right.

Soft Coup in Brazil: A Blow to Brazilian Democracy

The impeachment this week of Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff represents the most significant test for Brazil’s institutions since the end of its military dictatorship in 1985. After the Senate voted Thursday to begin an impeachment trial of the country’s first female president, less than halfway through her second term in office, one politician described the events as representing the “saddest day for Brazil’s young democracy.”[1]Since the post-dictatorship transition, impeachment requests have been filed against each and every one of Brazil’s presidents, but none were carried through.[2] Rousseff, however, will be only the second president to experience an actual trial. Portrayed as a crusade against corruption, the current process against a democratically elected president rests on unclear budgetary charges and bears the mark of a right wing retaliation after 13 years of left rule. This process is further complicated by the fact that virtually all of Brazil’s leading political figures are implicated to some degree in the corruption schemes. In the eyes of many, Brazil’s institutions seem to be failing this test and are not holding all actors equally accountable. From the outside it appears that in the young Brazilian republic, the structures of democracy are being shaken down. While the right-wing claims that Rousseff’s impeachment request is a legitimate response to budgetary malfeasance, her supporters are characterizing the efforts to impeach her as unconstitutional, and therefore a coup.

In “Behind Dilma’s Destitution, a Neoliberal Coup,” Tatiana Roque, a professor at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ) described the events surrounding Rousseff’s impeachment as a “neoliberal coup.” She states: “In the putting on hold of the democratic principles and the weakening of the voting power, we foresee the appearance of a dramatically anti-democratic process.”[3] In coverage of such a complex situation, the crisis has been portrayed by the privately owned media as a movement of the people against a corrupt government, which is ultimately an inaccurate and oversimplified explanation. In light of events this past week, it is even more necessary to analyze the legal ground on which the whole illegitimate process rests and to grasp its significance for the entire region.

Democracy lost in Brazil

Democracy lost in Brazil. As expected, the Brazilian Senate voted early Thursday to suspend President Dilma Rousseff and put on her on trial for impeachment. The leader of this months-long campaign in the lower house, Eduardo Cunha, was himself ordered to step down last week and will face charges of spiriting away as much as $40 million in bribes. The leader of impeachment in the Senate, Renan Calheiros, is under investigation as part of a sprawling political kickback scandal, as are many who voted in favor of impeachment in both chambers. Impeachment’s most vocal spokesman, Congressman Jair Bolsonaro, dedicated his vote to Brazil’s military dictatorship and the colonel responsible for torturing Rousseff, a former Marxist guerrilla, in the 1970s. Business interests backing the campaign include a host accused of modern-day slavery. The interim president, Michel Temer, heads a right-wing party that has lost four straight national elections to Rousseff’s Workers Party. He was recently convicted of campaign finance corruption and barred from running for office.
Rousseff’s many critics blame her for an economic recession and sprawling corruption scandal that has enveloped much of her party but not, crucially, her. But the real reasons for her removal are impossibly venal. A naked political power play has become a fight for the soul of Brazilian governance itself.

Stop being childish and disrespectful. I'm not linking competence to skin color. You are the one judging people by their skin color.
Btw, I wouldn't call some of those ministers "white', many of them are of mixed race just like almost a half of the Brazilian population. But when it's convenient, the brazilian governist left just calls someone white. I won't be discussing any issue with you anymore. Be happy with your imaginative 'coup' and your beloved criminals.

People usually use the word "GOLPE" (COUP) with the logo of TV Globo (Rio). Why?


- Globo and most other major news media supported Brazil's 1964 military coup
Globo is historically against popular governments in the country.
