SAO PAULO PUBLIC TRANSPORT PROTESTS



"Music video" compilation of scenes

The protests that have been occurring in Brazil go beyond the R$0,20 (US$0.10) raise in public transport fares.

Brazil is currently experiencing a widespread collapse of its infrastructure. There are problems with ports, airports, public transport, health and education. Brazil is not a poor country and the tax rates are extremely high. Brazilians see no reason to have such bad infrastructure when there is so much wealth that is so highly taxed. In the state capitals people spend up to four hours per day in traffic, either in their cars or on crowded public transport which is of very poor quality.

The Brazilian government has taken remedial measures to control inflation by cutting taxes and has not yet realized that the paradigm must shift to an infrastructure-focused approach. At the same time the Brazilian government is reproducing on a small scale what Argentina did some years ago: avoiding austerity and preventing the increase in the interest rates, which is leading to high inflation and low growth.

Other than the problem of infrastructure, there are several corruption scandals which remain without trial, and the cases being judged have been tending to end with the acquittal of the defendants. The biggest corruption scandal in Brazilian history finally ended with the conviction of the defendants and now the government is trying to reverse the trial by using maneuvers through unbelievable constitutional amendments: one, the PEC 37, which will annihilate the investigative powers of the promoters of the public ministry (the Brazilian equivalent of the District Attorneys), delegating the responsibility of investigation entirely to the Federal Police. Moreover, another proposal seeks to subject decisions of the Brazilian Supreme Court to the Congress - a complete violation of the three powers.

Those are, in fact, the revolts of Brazilians.

The protests are not mere isolated, unionized movements or extreme left riots, as some of the Brazilian press says. It is not a teenage rebellion. It is the uprising of the most intellectualized portion of society who wants to put a stop to these Brazilian issues. The young national mid-class, which has always been unsatisfied with the political oblivion, has now "awaken" - in the words of the protesters.

Grupo que está sob o vão do Masp é dispersado pela PM. Manifestações correm da PM, que fecha os dois sentidos da via, informou o repórter Marcelo Mora. Bombas são jogadas até contra PMs, que correm do tumulto.

O jornal "Folha de S.Paulo" diz que teve 7 repórteres atingidos no protesto. Entre eles, Giuliana Vallone e Fábio Braga levaram tiro de bala de borracha no rosto, de acordo com a publicação. Inicialmente, o jornal disse que eram 6 jornalistas atingidos. Pouco depois das 21h, passou a informar 7. (Foto: Diego Zanchetta/Estadão Conteúdo)

'Não nos responsabilizamos mais'
Major Lidio Costa Junior, do Policiamento de Trânsito da PM

É inaceitável que um major da PM lave as mãos diante da desastrosa operação da PM para conter os protestos!

A PM é responsável SIM, pela segurança de todos (sejam manifestantes, jornalistas e ou moradores e transeuntes)!

Hi! I know this is a difficult request, but we do try to provide translations to English for large passages of foreign language text in the international sections. Is it a difficult request to have a small overview of such posts (like you do on your other posts) so that we can all read them and share them with a wider audience?

Many thanks!

I was thinking about that. First I have to collect enough images, and when I have the time I can provide a translation. The main problem is having time. Other Brazilian forumers would be welcome to do that too.

I'm sorry for the lack of translations at this point, I don't have the time right now!

Thank you for your support - a backdated translation is fine. This is all about making the international sections of SSC as user-friendly as we can to everyone so your support is appreciated a lot.
