FINALLY SOMETHING ABOUT BRAZIL’S SITUATION ON MY DASHBOARD
WE’RE LIVING A REVOLUTION! WE’VE BEEN IN AN ALMOST CIVIL WAR STATE FOR TWO WEEKS! WHAT THE HELL, FOREIGNERS? TALK ABOUT US!
Why isn’t this shit on the new in America tho. Like the fuck I didn’t even know this shit was going on. But what’s the whole protest and marching about anyway? Details people
They’re marching about how new laws are giving politicians even more power than before to take money away from their people. They’re marching because of the money going towards the stadiums for the World Cup and Olympics while their education and health systems suffer. They wants change, and goddamn it’s about time they get it.
That stadium is also being built on indigenous people’s land, where they were housed and everything and the Brazilian government forcibly removed said indigenous peoples and bulldozed everything.
Yeah, it is.
Riots are happening in various cities. It started because of the raise on the price of tickets for the bus/subway, but that was only the straw that broke the cammel’s back.
Long term issues such as high taxes, lacking infrastructure, inefficient public services as well as other social problems are not being addressed in the country.
Meanwhile the enormous expenses in stadiums and other preparations to host the Worl Cup are making it clear that lack of money was never the reason these issues persist, but rather corruption and misuse of public funds.
Overall people are disgusted at the government. And they are trying to take the oportunity to make a change.
To know more, listen to this video. The woman drives the point ome nicely.
Oh dear lord we are not being told about it here. I really didn’t know. Please stay safe.
