Xenophobia and the Northeast - 10/11/2022 - Opinion

I have lived to see São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro say bull and wolf. 20 years ago, when I left Recife and arrived in the capital of São Paulo, pejorative terms were widely used in relation to the inhabitants of the Northeast. Everyone had a dismissive way of calling the northeast: it was “Bahia”, “Paraiba” …

The inhabitants of the northeast and their children could not affirm themselves positively; I myself have vilified my accent because of the false idea that people cannot understand what I am talking about. It’s funny that I’ve never seen this happen to a gringo.

When this happened, I could see that the Italian, Japanese and Jewish heritage was displayed in a way that showed superiority over my “North-Eastern affiliation.” It hasn’t changed much, but yes, there has been a shift. Today you can see many people from São Paulo say “bull”, “wolf”, “very good” in a northeast restaurant, eat jerky (beef jerky) and, why not, vote for the president of the Northeast son of Pernambuco. hinterlands that objectively recently brought the Northeast into a place of positivity.

I saw the maracatus enter Sao Paulo, just like I see the spread of festa junina and forró in a less stereotypical format. Discrimination and xenophobia among the inhabitants of the Northeast again became widespread; today it is easier to find it after its movement from the cultural to the political spectrum, in a dynamic that has a feedback: from culture/public to politics/institutionality.

Unfortunately, xenophobia is reintroduced every election year, highlighting the political stance of those who practice it. There are many historical and economic factors that help to understand the geography of political power in Brazil. In a brief analysis, I am thinking of replacing the political and economic influence of the Northeast—sugarcane and cocoa—with a “Coffee au lait Republic” centered in the Southeast of the country, and the ensuing migration flows, which intensified in the 1970s due to drought. in the region.

I also think of the gallery of northeastern presidents in Brazilian history – Deodoro da Fonseca, Floriano Peixoto, Epitasio Pessoa, Aurelio Tavares, Cafe Filho, José Linhares, Castelo Branco, José Sarni, Fernando Collor – and how they are all children of the North -Eastern political oligarchy, white and rich. These residents of the Northeast were “possible”, without xenophobia.

It’s about race and class, other than gender, of course: there’s not a single woman mentioned above. Northeastern oligarchies rise to power unhindered, but Luis Inácio Lula da Silva (PT) is the man who brought with him a northeastern Afro-Indian sertanejo. And that seems to be too much.

Re-elected Rocha remains humble but victorious political articulator |  Politics

The political campaign that resulted in the re-election of Governor Marcos Rocha (União Brasil) was not the easiest. Despite taking the lead in the first round with 1.83% more votes than runner-up Senator Marcos Rogerio (Poland), with whom he ran in the second round and won, by 4.94% valid votes it was difficult. elections that demanded a lot from Roche and his team.

If in the first round the commitment of the partners (secretaries, former secretaries, re-elected and elected deputies, etc.) was not effective, as it should have been, the joining forces in the second round, including with the chief articulator, Chief of Staff Junior Gonçalves leaves his post, to devote himself fully to the electoral campaign in search of unity, commitment and dedication from all partners.

There is no doubt that Marcos Rogerio was a tough opponent. He is a good tribune, knows how to use what he has best, which is his gift of speech, and performed well in the debates held in the second round of the campaign. Several research institutes have reported that Rogerio will be the new governor of Rondônia from 2023.

Simplicity, humility, a government without scandals and with good projects such as Guberno na Cidade, Porteira Aberta, Crianza Feliz, Mamae Cheguey, Prato Facil, Chow Poeira were fundamental in the Quest Rocha of a new mandate.

The partnership with the Legislative Assembly (Ale) chaired by MP Alex Redano (PRB-Ariquemes) also had a huge impact on Roshi’s victory in the second round. In addition to Redano, parliamentarians (re-elected and elected) from the governor’s support group selflessly and decisively joined the campaign after a furious call to “get on the road” in search of votes.

To deny that Roshi had problems during his first term would be an ignorance of reality. He faced at least two years of a pandemic that scared the world. Rondônia’s agribusiness-based economic strength has also been critical in ensuring a strong economy and sufficient resources to overcome the hardships caused by an unforeseen event such as covid-19 that brought the planet to a halt and claimed the lives of many people. Rocha has also performed well in the fight against the pandemic.

The reflection of the satisfaction of the majority of voters by Rocha and his team in the fight against covid-19 was already evident in the first round, when the former Minister of Health Fernando Maximo was elected from the party led by the governor of Rondonia, União Brasil with over 85,000 votes, the best of eight re-elected and elected representatives to the Federal House.

The Legislative Assembly elections also highlighted the strength of the Rocha partnership and organization. Five of the 24 re-elected and elected deputies represent União Brasil. There are at least nine more people who can be considered partners for a second term, which will begin on the 1st of next year.

Roche’s re-election was no accident. This is a government without scandals that has had a pandemic with negative consequences around the world, but in doing so, managed to get around the problems that were resolved peacefully. Gaining a new mandate, now that the pandemic is under control and the state is resuming development, including the emergence of the denim industry announced by the governor a few days ago, offering more than 1,000 jobs starting in 2023, will bolster Rondônia’s already balanced economy. , with a 2023 budget of BRL 13 billion.

The emergence of the denim industry indicates the intention to invest in this segment. It is necessary to produce at least a little of what we produce in abundance and quality, for example, soybeans. The denim factory is the start of a manufacturing process that can provide Marcos Roche and his team with the support they need to run smoothly and efficiently.

It is important to warn that partnership does not mean submission, and therefore good relations between the executive and legislature and the vigilance of the judiciary are necessary.

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.
