247 – Activist Rodrigo Pilha, who was arrested more than three months ago after protesting against genocide orchestrated by Jair Bolsonaro and remains in prison despite a court ruling recognizing his transition to an open regime, went on strike on Friday. Read below Pilha’s letter in which he protests against arbitration:

Brasilia, 9 July 2021

Dear family and friends,

After thinking for a long time about the last morning of the prison, I decided that from today I will start a hunger strike with no end date.

Given that the judiciary still forbids me from speaking, giving interviews and now holding me in prison, even though I won the right to open regime, I decided to use my body and peaceful resistance to protest against these and various others. absurdities that subsequent cases occur in the DF penitentiary system due to police and judicial authoritarianism.

My hunger strike is much more than a reluctance to eat the laundry they call the food they deliver to prisoners in this modern concentration camp called Sarai, my hunger strike is aimed at denouncing and drawing public attention to bad contracts, terrible conditions of serving sentences and all manner of human rights violations that continue to occur in the DF penitentiary system under the blind eye of the judiciary, who frequently wash their hands, dry the cloth, and ultimately collude with such atrocities.

Threats of punishment and aggression, name-calling and cruel treatment by the criminal police officers continue to take place, and interrogation of inmates WITHOUT the presence of protection (a fact that only happened to me three times) is a common practice.

Cameras and wings are overcrowded, people sleep on top of each other and even on a dirty floor among cockroaches and scorpions.

The bathroom is more like a pigsty, and the sunbathing lasts only half an hour.

Excessive punishment, and for trivial reasons, with the simple intent of causing a regression of prisoner crime, ultimately transforms psychological torture by the state into everyday life in prisons.

The Penitentiary Special Operations Office (DPOE) has been accused of unjustified beatings, maiming, and even being responsible for the death of prisoners following a procedure called “pulling out” or “pulling” prisoners.

Finally, I know the risks I am taking, but I am convinced that my hunger strike is what needs to be done now to shed light on the horror that exists in DF prisons, and I assure you that the problems of the prison system are much more radical and harmful to people’s lives than the position I take today as a form of protest.

With the above in mind, and since they are not allowing me to speak, I ask you to SPEAK FOR ME and circulate this condemnatory letter as much as possible so that as many people as possible are aware of the barbarism that prevails in the DF prison system today. …

“… they can arrest me, they can beat me, they can even leave me without food, because I have not changed my mind …”

With the protest verses of the samba composer “Voz do Morro”, Ze Keti, I say goodbye and thank everyone for all the support and affection received.

Strong hugs and hasta la Victoria siemper !!!

With love,

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



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



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.

Faced with the scandal unleashed by these revelations, Parliament, in which the ANC has a majority, may have to decide next Tuesday on the possible launch of a process to remove the South African president.

This case occurs when only two weeks are left before the meeting at which the ANC will decide who will be its new president and, accordingly, the next head of state, if the opposition party wins in 2024. organization of early elections.

It should be remembered that the ANC has been in power in South Africa since 1994, after the first free elections in the country, which brought the historic anti-apartheid leader and ANC President Nelson Mandela to power.
