Political action worries part of motorcycle clubs - OVALE

O Globo Agency | @journalovale

BRAZIL. “Motorcycles” in support of President Jair Bolsonaro have worried a group of motorcyclists who do not identify with the ideas of the Pocket and see the approach of part of the movement as a contradiction with their own ideals.

– This is not the essence of motorsport. It emerges after the Second World War as a transgressive movement that contradicts the standards of society, does not fit into these standards. status quo – says 33-year-old Gleibson Bom Rui, a resident of Macae (RJ).

He is part of one of the nation’s motorcycle groups that call themselves “progressive”, Metalreds. Bom Rui and other motorcyclists acknowledge, however, that much of the movement today is close to the president.

After arriving in Brazil in about the 1960s, motorcycle clubs were mainly created by the middle and upper classes before becoming popular. Until recently, there was a certain “bias” that prevented members with less purchasing power from purchasing the most powerful motorcycles.

– Most motorcyclists, especially traditional ones, are former military, retired military, representatives of the judiciary. In motorcycling, there is traditionally the problem of military hierarchy. The new clubs are trying to break this question of director’s discipline, says Itamar Carvalho, Tom, founder of Jotun de Ferro, a motorcycle group that is classified as progressive from Teresopolis (RJ).

While Bolsonaro’s supporters touted and celebrated the “motorcycle” success, oppositionists recalled that Italian fascist dictator Benito Mussolini also made motorcycle rides to celebrate his rule in 1930s Italy.

A motorcycle club member who also bills himself as “progressive”, Odiadu, Jose Walter Alves, 53, has escorted “motorcycles” from afar in Perdoes, Maryland. He sees political divisions within motorcycle clubs as natural, but is uncomfortable when traditional groups that identify as non-partisans are seen as supporting the president.

– The motorcycle, although many try to distort or change the emphasis, is not partisan. Every movement we make, be it educational, social, everything, of course, is a political movement. But he is not a partisan. The motorcycle preaches peace, unity, brotherhood. “It is inconvenient to confuse us with a movement in support of the president, especially in the critical context of health,” he said.

For Tom of Jotun de Ferro, there was not only a fear of seeing his passion for motorcycling linked to his political position, but also frustration with some of the idols he had cultivated since childhood when he fell in love with motorcycles.

– I was inspired by people, they were my heroes. I was one of those guys who saw the custom bike and said, “I want to get there.” I saw motorcycle clubs and thought I should be in them. But it’s impossible not to polarize with what we go through when you see denial, anti-vaccines (anti-vaccine movement), conspiracy. It used to be great to go to a motorcycle club event, chat with the crowd. Today, if I can, I’ll stick with mine.

PT MP proposes to ban the political use of the Brazilian flag

MP Marcio Macedo (PT-SE) sent a bill to the House to ban the political use of Brazilian symbols such as the flag and anthem. According to the parliamentarian, the intention is to keep these representations from possible “wear and tear”.

In the letter, Macedo claims that the last election saw a simplification of the flag. The MP wants to ban the political manipulation of these symbols regardless of the party. That is, if the project is approved, the presidential government Luis Inacio Lula da Silva (PT) could not include the flag or anthem in presidential advertisements.

This is what we have seen lately in elections, when certain groups use national symbols to stir up division among Brazilians, promote hatred, division and fake news, even to apologize for the Nazism that Brazil was so heroically involved in defeating on European soil, under the rule of the mantle of our flag

The text was sent on November 8 and talks about the importance of the flag for peace and unity, referring to the arrival of the World Cup in Qatar.

Politicization of national symbols intensified under the president Jair Bolsonaro (PL) and several of his supporters go to the polls using the colors of the flag to signify their preferences.

With the election of Lula, the left is trying to bring back the Brazilian symbols, especially during the World Cup. It has become popular to personalize the uniforms of choice and tones related to the flag, with red stars and numbers 13 to indicate their support for the elected government and their opposition to Bolsonaro.

The political future of Ramaphosa remains in doubt

Published in:

The meeting of the ANC Executive Committee (NEC), which was supposed to discuss the future of party president Cyril Ramaphosa this afternoon, has been postponed after brief consultations on the Phala Phala saga and is expected to meet again on Sunday.

Cyril Ramaphosa’s political future remains in doubt after a meeting of the ANC’s executive committee, convened amid calls for the resignation of a president accused in a parliamentary report of violating his oath, was postponed.

National Chairman of the ANC Gwede Mantashe, who was present at the first consultations of the NEC, believes that the country will plunge into chaos if the president resigns. In turn, the Acting Secretary General of the ANC, Paul Mashatile, says that at the meeting of the ANC executive committee it was not discussed whether President Cyril Ramaphosa expressed his intention to resign.

In recent days, South African President Cyril Ramaphosa, 70, who succeeded Jacob Zuma in 2018 with an anti-corruption postulate in South Africa, has found himself in a quandary after a parliamentary commission released a Monday report on Wednesday saying he may have violated the anti-corruption laws of his country.

According to this document, the South African head of state concealed from the police and tax authorities an alleged robbery attempt that took place in 2020 at his Phala Phala property, located in the north-east of the country.

Under the terms of a complaint filed in June last year by Ramaphosa’s political opponent, $580,000 worth of bills were found hidden in sofa cushions in one of the rooms of the house, located on the presidential property. Sources close to Ramaphosa claim that the banknotes correspond to the sale of cattle to a Sudanese businessman for cash.
