Column |  To combat gender-based political violence

Silence is a political message. And selectivity is a weapon of opportunism

Featured progressive women, especially in 2018 and 2020, have come under constant attack on their voices and powers.

In these 16 days of activism to end violence against women and 20 days of activism to combat racism, it is important to emphasize that neoliberalism is attacking our existence, especially black women, in all areas of our lives.

Mother Beth de Oxum: “We are an urban quilombo that does not fit into the whiteness of the Brazilian state.”

Machism, racism and lgbtomophobia – the structural axes of the capitalist system – disrupt our ways of walking, acting, acting, resisting, regulating our bodies, our sleep, our rest, our hunger, our material ambitions, social and even political.

This is why, when it comes to a woman occupying a political space in defense of democracy, this is a scandalous image for traditional conservatism.

We do not want to be treated only as beneficiaries of state policy, we want the right to make decisions on them.

There have been countless incidents of political violence against women in chambers of parliament across the country, further affecting black women, young people and LGBT people who suffer from racism, ageism and homophobia, constantly declaring that they are not, this is the place for them.

And, if, on the one hand, there is complete silence in the coverage of the topic by the mainstream media, on the other hand, when approaching the topic, there is also a selectivity and opportunistic inconstancy of political fields.

Over time, it is important to emphasize that political violence against women does not contradict the arguments she is presently presenting on the platform, but rather it is an attack on a woman’s right to speak and defend a vision of the world and, above all, on her right to directly influence transformation the world.

We do not want to be treated only as beneficiaries of state policy, we want the right to make decisions on them.

In Congress, Assemblies and Municipal Chambers across the country, PT parliamentarians are at the forefront of advocating for women, especially those in greatest need, developing proposals and taking positions on issues related to the survival of Brazilian women in society, such as labor rights and social Security.

We understand that fighting machismo and oppression of women means guaranteeing rights and a dignified life for all, including upon retirement.

In participating governments, together with Lula and Dilma, we have endorsed the Maria da Peña Act, which is a major milestone in the fight against violence against women.

We have expanded the protection mechanisms for Brazilian women, prioritized women on the Bolsa-Família card, on the right to housing through Minha Casa Minha Vida, approved the PEC das Domésticas, implemented economic policies with a real increase in the minimum wage, created a network of policies and actions to enable women to obtain financial, emotional and social autonomy to avoid situations of violence.

Condemning the misogynistic and sexist coup against President Dilma Rousseff, we stood up and mobilized, faced with the silence of many, many, about Dilma’s atrocities.

We stood up and sympathized with Manuela D’Avil when she faced meanness and meanness on social media, while many also remained silent.

Silence is a political message. And selectivity is a weapon of opportunism. Protecting women from political gender-based violence is a difficult, daily and ongoing challenge – not only when it comes to shifting the political chessboard in favor of a particular group.

Combating political gender-based violence has been one of the pillars of the work of the PT National Secretariat for Women, because we deeply understand the importance of ensuring women’s participation in politics, which implies not only the election of more women, but also the right to fully exercise their mandate without coercion, intimidation and violence.

This is why the defense of democracy is so dear to the country and so essential to the feminist agenda. And we PT women put democracy into practice, not only during electoral periods, but in all our relationships with civil society and social movements, and even within our own organization.

We will take to the streets on 4 December as part of a national campaign calling for Faure Bolsonar, for women’s rights and for an end to government genocide.

We invite all women against Bolsonaro and we will continue to move firmly on the path of increasing women’s participation in politics and protecting each other until 2022. We do not tolerate any practice of coercion into silence, and we remain in solidarity and united with everyone who is in the fight against fascism and authoritarianism.

Nudging Lulu and Bolsonara, Moreau trains in a political tone at the SP.



Nudging Lulu and Bolsonara, Moreau trains in a political tone at the SP.

The microphone is raised, ex-minister Sergio Moro (Podemos) walks around the stage without much confidence. A crowded audience listens to their jokes and political commentary. He presents his view of the country’s history in recent years in a tone that increasingly resembles that of a professional politician.

During a two-hour presentation of the book Against the Corruption System at the Renaissance Hotel in São Paulo, the former judge and current president, who had already denied his involvement in politics, focused his speech on defending his coming period. Lava Yato, with indirect suggestions to former President Luis Inacio Lula da Silva (PT) and the Ministry of Justice and Public Security, with direct quotes from President Jair Bolsonaro (PL), his former boss and current enemy.

Moreau joined Podemos last month and, as a prospective runner-up, his main flag is the fight against corruption.

Presentation of a book with a pre-election plan

“When he comes in, let’s shout“ President! “”, – said several people when the chairs were full. Some called themselves “Moro activists.”

The author’s recording at about 7:10 pm was lively. According to the press service, 400 tickets have been sold, with few vacancies. There are two packages available. One guaranteed entry, autographed book and R $ 95 notebook. Another, regular entrance, for 80 reais. The recommended price for one book in bookstores is R $ 49.90.

This is the third event of the so-called “launch tour” of the book after Curitiba and Recife. The latter will be in Rio de Janeiro next Thursday (9).

Moreau denied it was a campaign event. “This is not another project in which I took part,” he said at the opening. But his position was that of a candidate.

Until the middle of this year, the former judge refused to participate in politics several times. As he solidifies as a preliminary candidate, his faltering demeanor gradually solidifies and he feels at ease with a receptive audience.

As in other exhibitions, Moreau did not answer questions from the press and the public.

Anti-corruption motto. as usual, he dominated the lines. This is the central theme of the former magistrate, who even proposed the creation of a national anti-corruption court if elected, which the lawyers UOL listens to consider illegal.

When the topic changed, he said that he had returned from the United States, where he worked in the private sector, because he had been drafted. “It looks like the Brazilians are going to a funeral in 2022, all that remains is to choose the color of the coffin. And people said: come back, come back, ”he said.

“As a minister, I have never considered myself a politician, because this is a technical position. There is a political game, but it is not an addiction. I am not going to repeat that I am not a politician. I came back mostly for you. “

Against Lula and Bolsonaro

Moreau has always defended his anti-corruption legacy and, when he could, nudged Lula and Bolsonara, the top two candidates in the 2022 Planalto competition.

“People keep complaining about the president’s attacks on the judiciary – with reason – and the president’s attacks on the press – with good reason – but they don’t remember that it was the same during PT, but the goals were different,” he said, mocking coercive behavior towards Lula, claiming a risk to the police.

“In fact, both [Lula e Bolsonaro] bad, both wrong, ”he said.

Moreau was minister from January 2019 to April 2020 when he stepped down, accusing Bolsonaro of interfering with the PF (Federal Police) while investigating burglary schemes involving Senator Flavio Bolsonaro (PL-RJ), his eldest son.

“If my son does something wrong, I will scold him,” he said. “If you are against the government, you are out of the game or you are a communist agent.”

Moreau was also critical of other areas of the current government. “I looked at Brazil with great concern. In this pandemic, everyone has lost someone they loved and we also saw a crisis in the economic situation. High prices, low wages and rising interest rates, ”he said.

Same day as the triplex prescription

In the book, Moreau also tells the behind-the-scenes stories and stories of Lava Yato and ministries, which he called not “versions” but “facts.”
“Is this your version of the facts? No, these are facts. There is a story that happened. These are facts, ”the former minister said.

The event takes place on the same day that the FPM (Federal Ministry of State) acknowledged the statute of limitations in the case against Lula in the Guaruja Triplex (JV) case, in which the former president was convicted by Moro.

The statute of limitations was granted by the MPF on the grounds that the STF (Federal Supreme Court) had already overturned Lula’s conviction in April this year, declaring Moreau a suspect.

When asked, he regretted the decision. “When you see the courts overturning convictions for corruption … Something is wrong with the system that allows it. And Lava Jato remains proof that the system can work, ”he defended.

The event ended at 21.20. With a duration of just over two hours, several people had already left the hall during the last replies of the former minister.

This Tuesday (12.07), the anti-Semitist organization said it had filed a civil lawsuit against Thierry Bodet, leader of the Dutch populist party Frum for Democracy (FvD), for comparing health restrictions in relation to COVID-19 and the Holocaust. … The action was presented by four Jewish survivors of World War II, CJO, which brings together Jewish organizations in the Netherlands, and the Israel Documentation and Information Center (CIDI), which monitors anti-Semitism in the country.

Survivors found several tweets from populist leader Thierry Bodet, in which he stated that “the unvaccinated are the new Jews, and those who will not face exceptions are the new Nazis.”

Bode also posted a picture of a boy who was not allowed to participate in the St. Nicholas Day celebrations by uploading a photo of a boy from the Lodz ghetto (Poland) with a Star of David.

The authors of the action also criticized the populist for sharing a photo of the Buchenwald concentration camp with the following comment: “How CAN you not see how history is still repeating itself?”

“With these statements, Bode puts Sho’s horror (five to six million Jews exterminated by the Nazis in World War II) on a par with measures against the coronavirus. In doing so, he minimizes the importance of the Holocaust, ”he said. stated CIDI in a note.

“Making such comparisons is“ historically and fundamentally wrong, and especially detrimental to Holocaust survivors and their families, ”the center added.

Informants are calling for messages to be deleted and Bode not to use images of the Holocaust to talk about measures against the coronavirus.
