Artists attending the Avante festival respond to criticism: “Where are they when children in Yemen are screaming of hunger?”

With the opening Poster of the festival “Forward”which takes place from 2 to 4 September at Quinta da Atalaia, in Seixal, there were several criticisms of Portuguese artists accepting an invitation to perform at an event of the Communist Party of Portugal (PCP), the only Portuguese party with a seat in Parliament that did not condemn the military invasion of Ukraine by order of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

José Milhazes spoke first. At SIC, a commentator recalled that musicians are “free to participate in anything, but they are in a party that is not just a musical one. It is a political party created by a party that supports abhorrent regimes and that currently supports war.

I was stunned to see artists like Carminho or Paulo Braganza on the poster,” said José Milhazes, adding that he was surprised by the presence of Bia Ferreira, “who, according to the poster is one of the most prominent Brazilian voices of affirmation for the LGBT community and comes to the side of a party that supports regimes that persecute, arrest and kill all these sexual minorities.”

BLITZ podcast guest, Posto Emissor, Paulo Braganza said: “There was a wave hate because of Avant. I am a man of the world and I am going for the world. I go to work and nothing else.”

For her part, Bia Ferreira responded in the affirmative, releasing a video in which she responds to messages received after José Milhazes’ comment. “The Festa do Avante invited me to make show and on any stage that invites me to do my art, I rise because I am a woman, black and Brazilian, who does not have many opportunities to do the political and revolutionary art that I represent.

“I’m going to practice my art” Bia Ferreira

“I’m going to denounce the damage the Portuguese have done here in Brazil. If you only care about deaths in Ukraine because a white European dies, I wanted to say that every 23 minutes a black person dies here in Brazil. And that’s what I’m going to do at the Festa do Avante: condemn the damage. I don’t refuse to touch because my art will not be hushed up or condemned,” he says.

“What really worries me is that I’m complaining that your ancestor enslaved my people here in Brazil and that we’re still paying that bill to this day. That’s why you’re so excited for Bia to play Festa do Avante. Yes, I’m going to do my art,” says Bia Ferreira, who also works at FMM Sines.

Bia Ferreira developed these ideas into mail on Instagram: “Regarding the war between Russia and Ukraine, I have never been to any of these countries, but here in Brazil I have been living in war since birth and I have never seen these same people worry about our death. . Helicopters are used as a base to shoot down civilians in the favelas. The deaths in Ukraine are alarming because white people are dying. How much are the lives of the people who die every day as a result of state violence in Brazil worth? Do you know their color? If you don’t care, then you’re just another racist. And Brazil is the country that kills the most [pessoas] LGBTKIAP+ no peace!” he says.

“As long as I have ammo, I will travel wherever I am welcome.” Dino D’Santiago

For his part, Dino D’Santiago wrote: “I received messages from some people against my participation in the Festa do Avante, some asked to cancel, others accused me of Ukrainian blood shed in this war. Yeah. I am responsible for the bloodshed in this and all wars on both sides of the trench! Because I’m the son of the 20th century! The deadliest century in human history! In OUR hands we carry the blood of over 100 million people killed in the name of power, religion or genocide.”

On the other hand, the author of The New Lisbon notes:As for this war between two European countries, it seems to have finally awakened the compassion of the privileged Eurocentric, who today tastes his own “Western” poison. Where are they when famine cries out for children in Yemen, where are they when it comes to the 5.5 million refugees from the Democratic Republic of the Congo or the 1.75 million fleeing Burkina Faso, in addition to the other million refugees from Cameroon, South Sudan, Chad, Mali, Sudan, Nigeria, Burundi and Ethiopia?” he asks. “I have always been and will be for PEACE in every corner of this globe! And for this war of mankind, I carry the only weapon that I inherited from my parents … LOVE! And as long as I have ammo, I will travel wherever I am welcome.”

Express too. Enrique Raposo wrote on the topic, commenting on the reaction of the Russian Embassy to the words addressed to Putin, at a concert in Agueda. “After the Pedro Abruños case, the friendship and connivance between the PKP and Russia has become even more scandalous, and in this sense it is important to ask the question: will Portuguese artists continue to campaign and act for freedom and diversity in the morning? and during the day? Will they continue to play at the party of the party that supports Putin? Will they continue to campaign LGBT in the morning and play as the most reactionary Portuguese party in the field in the afternoon, which, on top of that, refuses to denounce the Putin regime that persecutes LGBT minorities? ”

After the plane thaw found two corpses in the Swiss Alps

Published

on

After the discovery of the wreckage, two bodies were found in the melting ice of the Swiss Alps. Snowless winters and hot July temperatures are slowly revealing the secrets hidden in the Alps.

Two French climbers discovered the bodies on Wednesday while climbing the Chesgen glacier in Valais.

The bones were brought by helicopter for examination. Police say the DNA identification process “may take several days.”

The discovery happened next to a trail that hadn’t been used in over a decade, said Dario Andenmatten, director of the mountain hut in Britain, where many climbers start their ascents in the region.

French climbers were guided by an old map, which led to the discovery. One of the climbers claims that one of the bodies found was wearing “clothing from the 80s.” According to the report, the body was mummified and slightly damaged, “but nearly intact.”

Investigators estimate the death occurred “around the 1970s or 1980s.”

A week ago, a body was found next to the Stockey glacier, near the resort of Zermatt, on Monte Cervino, the most famous mountain in the Alps.

Police in the Alps maintain a list of some 300 people who have gone missing since 1925, one of which is billionaire supermarket chain owner Karl-Erivan Haub who disappeared in 2018.

After a relatively snowless winter, the Swiss Alps have already experienced two heatwaves in the summer. In July, authorities advised climbers not to climb the Matterhorn due to abnormally high temperatures, which reached almost 30 degrees Celsius in Zermatt.

During the July heat wave, the height at which the water froze was a record 5184 meters compared to the normal summer level of 3000 to 3500 meters.

The FBI raided Donald Trump’s home in Mar-a-Lago.

Published

on

The FBI conducted a massive operation to build Donald Trump in Mar-A-Lago in Florida, where the former US president moved after leaving the White House.

“These are dark times for our nation as my beautiful home, Mar-A-Lago, in Palm Beach, Florida, is currently under siege, overrun and occupied by a large group of FBI agents. Nothing like this has ever happened to a president. United States,” Donald Trump said this Monday evening in a statement quoted by the American press in which he spoke about the police operation.

“After working and cooperating with the relevant government agencies, this unannounced raid was neither necessary nor appropriate.”

Neither Donald Trump nor the FBI, the US federal police, have explained why the authorities are enforcing the court order. The former president used a text in which he exposed the actions of the police to accuse the Democrats of persecuting him using the judicial system, and said that such an operation could only happen in a “third world country.” “They even broke into my safe,” Donald Trump said, comparing the case to the Watergate scandal.

According to The New York Times, citing two people familiar with the process, the investigation will focus on materials that will be taken to Florida after leaving the White House, including pages of classified documents. Trump was forced to return 15 boxes of materials requisitioned by the National Archives after he was threatened with legal action.

The U.S. is going through a tough time with the investigation into the Capitol invasion and Donald Trump’s attempts to stay in power by alleging fraud in the presidential election. In recent days, some members of the government closest to the former president have been called in with statements about interference in the process of passing power.
