Be careful of what you hear about Brazil

Escrito por , Postado em English

(BRASILIA/DF, TEMER RODA VIVA NACIONAL 11/11/2016. President MICHEL TEMER during an interview for mainstream press. Photo: Beto Barata/PR) Please, be careful of what you hear about Brazil. What’s happening here is very different from what you may be reading in recent years. I’m not telling you I own the truth and that everything you’ve read on newspapers or magazines like the Guardian, New York Times, or Economist are blatant and utter lies. Things are not so black and white. Like the devil, the disturbing truth is in the details. And that’s the problem. (…) In this post, let’s talk about […]

The Saga continues, Chapter xxx*: Lula’s Conviction

Escrito por , Postado em English, Mariana T Noviello, Redação

Photo: Triplex attributed to Lula in Guarujá (top apartment on the left of middle building) Folha de São Paulo. It seems that Globo, Brazil’s largest media conglomerate, invented a new form of reality TV. Instead of bringing real people to live within a confined environment like caged animals in programmes such as Big Brother, it has decided to meddle in real life, interfering in the trajectory of Brazilian politics. We are, apparently, approaching the final episodes of the Brazilian Reality House of Cards: Lula’s conviction. Though we still have a few chapters to run, so Lula has not been jailed […]

The judicial abduction of Eduardo Guimarães raises the ghost of dictatorship

Escrito por , Postado em English, Miguel do Rosário

(Eduardo Guimarães is in the center. The young man at left is his lawyer) By Miguel do Rosário, editor do Cafezinho On the morning of Tuesday, 21st March, I woke up early, had a coffee and turned on my computer to catch up with the latest news in social media. It’s how I usually start my days. I used to read the papers, but they have become unbearably hysterical in the last three years, with headlines generally based on exaggerated suspicions, taking up about half of the front pages. That is, when they are not entirely false. So, I prefer […]

What will remain of Brazil after the Car Wash investigations?

Escrito por , Postado em CafezinhoBulletin, English, Redação

[Para ler a versão em português deste texto, clique aqui] (Photo: Sergio Moro, Car Wash’s judge, receiving an Award from Globo, Brazilian largest media corporation) Dear Readers, the Cafezinho blog is launching today a monthly political bulletin in English. In this first edition we conduct a political analysis of what is happening in Brazil. We believe that the world is extremely ill informed about the subtleties of Brazilian politics. This is because information comes mainly from our own media. Not only is the media involved, but it is one of the parties that is most responsible for the deplorable state […]

In the Brazil of the Coup, whose death matters?

Escrito por , Postado em English, Mariana T Noviello

Photo: Prison in Rio Grande do Norte where 26 people died Exclusive for Cafezinho by Marianna T Noviello Only a fortnight into the new year and rebellions in Brazilian prisons have left 134 people dead. The timeline of media events moves too fast, going from disaster to disaster, scandal to scandal vying for our attention. One day we are concerned with the bombing of children in Aleppo, the next we are talking about Trump’s golden shower in some hotel room in Moscow. In Brazil, events seem to move even faster. Atrocity after atrocity flash past our eyes without giving us […]

Entrusted to Save Brazil: The Party That Ruined Rio

Escrito por , Postado em English

by Simon Romero, New York Times RIO DE JANEIRO — Students are taking over Rio de Janeiro schools to protest crippling education cuts, while the politician who helped bring the Summer Olympics to this city is battling allegations that he pocketed millions in bribes. Grenade blasts from drug-gang battles echo through Leblon, the seaside bastion of the city’s elite. Even the governor’s daughter was recently mugged at gunpoint outside her home. When Brazil’s new leader, Michel Temer, took the reins of the nation this month — a milestone in the caustic fight to oust President Dilma Rousseff, who faces an […]

[:en]New Political Earthquake in Brazil: Is It Now Time for Media Outlets to Call This a “Coup”?

Escrito por , Postado em English

[:en]Credits: Antônio Cruz/ Agência Brasil by Glenn Greenwald, The Intercept BRAZIL TODAY AWOKE to stunning news of secret, genuinely shocking conversations involving a key minister in Brazil’s newly installed government, which shine a bright light on the actual motives and participants driving the impeachment of the country’s democratically elected president, Dilma Rousseff. The transcripts were published by the country’s largest newspaper, Folha de São Paulo, and reveal secret conversations that took place in March, just weeks before the impeachment vote in the lower house was held. They show explicit plotting between the new planning minister (then-senator), Romero Jucá, and former oil executive Sergio Machado — both […]

[:en]Globo behind coup? Brazil president’s supporters blame impeachment on media

Escrito por , Postado em English

[:en] on Russia Today Brazil has been plunged into a deepening political crisis, with its first female president suspended after five years in power. Dilma Rousseff’s supporters accuse the dominant media, owned by Brazil’s richest families, of fanning the flames of discord. The escalating political crisis has driven a wedge between local residents, with anti-Rousseff protesters and crowds of her supporters taking to the streets nearly every day. On Sunday protesters rallying in support of the suspended leader faced-off with police and rival activists in Sao Paulo. After the Brazilian Senate voted to impeach Rousseff for breaking budget laws, her […]

[:en]Noam Chomsky: Brazil’s President Dilma Rousseff “Impeached by a Gang of Thieves”

Escrito por , Postado em English

[:en] on Democracy Now As protests continue in Brazil over the Legislature’s vote to suspend President Dilma Rousseff and put her on trial, Noam Chomsky notes that “we have the one leading politician who hasn’t stolen to enrich herself, who’s being impeached by a gang of thieves, who have done so. That does count as a kind of soft coup.” Rousseff’s replacement, Brazil’s former vice president, Michel Temer, is a member of the opposition PMDBparty who is implicated in Brazil’s massive corruption scandal involving state-owned oil company Petrobras, and has now appointed an all-white male Cabinet charged with implementing corporate-friendly […]

[:en]’Brazil is not a democracy’: Cannes contender’s cast stage red carpet protest

Escrito por , Postado em English

[:en]On The Guardian The cast and crew of Aquarius, an acclaimed Brazilian drama in competition at Cannes have used the film’s official premiere to mount a protest as what they see as a coup in their country. Writer-director Kleber Mendonca Filho, along with his cast and crew, climbed the steps to the Palais in Cannes before revealing a selection of banners apparently objecting to the recent impeachment of president Dilma Rousseff. The protest was met by ecstatic applause inside the cinema. Audience members then joined in by holding aloft similar banners. Aquarius is about an ageing music critic, played by […]

[:en]Brazil Impeachment Brings to Mind Thailand’s 2014 Military Coup

Escrito por , Postado em English

[:en]by Gwynne Dyer, on Common Dreams Q: What’s the difference between the coup that overthrew the elected government in Thailand in Thailand in 2014 and the coup that has now removed the elected government in Brazil? A: The coup-makers in Thailand wore uniforms. The Brazilian Senate has just voted 55 to 22 to impeach President Dilma Rousseff. She will be suspended for the next 180 days while the same body tries her on the charge of understating the size of the budget deficit before the last election. If two-thirds of the senators find her guilty, she will be permanently removed […]

[:en]Brazil’s Dilma Rousseff to face impeachment trial

Escrito por , Postado em English

[:en] Photo: Jornalistas Livres On BBC Brazil’s President Dilma Rousseff is to face trial after the Senate voted to impeach and suspend her. Ms Rousseff is accused of illegally manipulating finances to hide a growing public deficit ahead of her re-election in 2014, which she denies. Senators voted to suspend her by 55 votes to 22 after an all-night session that lasted more than 20 hours. Vice-President Michel Temer will now assume the presidency while Ms Rousseff’s trial takes place. The trial may last up to 180 days, which would mean Ms Rousseff would be suspended during the Olympic Games […]
