(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 […]

[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]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] 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 […]

[:en]Rousseff’s main achievement as president led directly to her downfall, writes AQ’s editor-in-chief by Brian Winter, America’s Quartely Back in March 2014, when the Petrobras scandal was just getting started, some of President Dilma Rousseff’s top aides saw a golden opportunity to kill the investigation – or at least badly wound it. Márcio Anselmo, the Federal Police deputy in charge of the probe, had given an interview (which can be seen here) to Jornal Nacional, Brazil’s most-watched news program. On-camera and on-the-record, Anselmo and others laid out the main points of the case, which would soon become notorious: A former […]

[:en]Photo: Mídia NINJA By Glenn Greenwald, on The Intercept In 2002, Brazil’s left-of-center Workers Party (PT) ascended to the presidency when Lula da Silva won in a landslide over the candidate of the center-right party PSDB (throughout 2002, “markets” were indignant at the mere prospect of PT’s victory). The PT remained in power when Lula, in 2006, was re-elected in another landslide against a different PSDB candidate. PT’s enemies thought they had their chance to get rid of PT in 2010, when Lula was barred by term limits from running again, but their hopes were crushed when Lula’s handpicked successor, the previously unknown […]

[:en]Brazilian Moviemaker: It’s a Coup d’État

Escrito por , Postado em English

[:en] A Brazilian Filmmaker Travels Through Time, With Sonia Braga by Nicolas Rapold, New York Times In the 2012 drama “Neighboring Sounds,” the Brazilian filmmaker Kleber Mendonca Filho dissected the class tensions of a single street in Recife. Dazzlingly shot and edited, the debut feature was chosen as Brazil’s submission for Best Foreign Language Film at the Oscars. Its whisker-sensitive feel for the tensions in daily lives, and the centuries of history that lie beneath, seemed to take the pulse of Brazilian society. Four years later, Mr. Mendonca Filho will present his new feature, “Aquarius,” in competition at the Cannes […]

However, to be fully consummated, it also needs to be a social coup, in other words, it will have to use violence to coerce, intimidate, and annihilate all the social instances which do not accept it as a democratic and legitimate process. He also notes that the […]

[:en]On Guardian With less than a week until the Brazilian senate votes on the impeachment of President Dilma Rousseff, the question facing the nation is no longer whether the Workers’ party government will fall, but how far to the right the political pendulum will swing once it has fallen. For Marco Feliciano – an ultra-conservative preacher-politician from the evangelical caucus – it cannot go far enough in reversing what he sees as the malign policies introduced since the left came to power in 2003. “For 13 years we have been anaesthetised. Now we will see the renaissance of hope in […]

Conservative sectors use the judiciary and big media conglomerates to persecute former president Lula and his family with a sordid campaign of lies and accusations without evidence. The fight is between the party of exclusion, which is headed by neoliberals who want to return to government, and the party of inclusion, which for 13 years has been promoting justice and social inclusion and income distribution in our country. In order to derail the candidacy of the labor leader, Brazilian media, led by only six […]

The Federal Prosecutor General (PGR), Rodrigo Janot, who for some time has been emitting mixed signals, as a disguise, has now taken off his mask and made two radical, but not surprising moves: attacking Lula and Dilma at the same time. Janot sent to the STF a request to open an inquiry against Lula, based purely on the confession and accusations Delcídio Amaral. He also leaked to the press that he has […]

By Miguel do Rosário The coup has inspired very sinister projections for the near future, especially the increase in the level of state coercion, the reduction of liberties, and the deepening of the process of criminalization of political activities. Nevertheless, these things will only be politically useful to the coup if the corporate media assumes an even greater hegemony than it currently possesses, and is able to control the narrative of all the facts. On Mayday, once again Brazilian communities from around the world protested against the coup. The change in the mood of public opinion continues, so much so […]
