i love tumblr user kateargent: #CHANGEBRAZIL Masterpost: Understanding the cause

forgottencapital:

I sure hope you are seeing a bunch of stuff about Brazil, either on Tumblr, Twitter, Facebook or TV. But I need you to understand what is going on. What’s truly going on around here. So I prepared this masterpost, a list of links that should explain this to you!

Some background:

What triggered the people:

Where the protest begins

  • First protest in Porto Alegre in March 2013, when protesters convinced the local city hall to reduce the fare price.
  • In Goiania, 16 May also before the prices were officially changed, where two buses were incinerated and two buses were stoned, but leaving no victims on behalf of the protesters.
  • There was another protest in Goiania, on 6 June, where the fares were brought back to their previous price by judge Fernando de Mello Xavier.
  • An then finally, São Paulo.
  • I say finally because the São Paulo protests were everywhere in the news.
  • The city hall announced the raise of the tickets prices from R$3,00 to R$3,20, starting on 2 June. It’s one of the most expensive bus tickets in the country.
  • Not just the bus tickets, but healthcare, economy and education are being left aside in order to steal from us and invest as much money as possible in the 2013 Confederations Cup and the 2014 World Cup.
  • 13th June 2013: The day 5 thousand protesters occupied Avenida Paulista, one of the most important avenues in São Paulo. There was a worldwide repercussion to it.
  • There was also a protest on 16 June in Brasília, our capital, right before a Brazil vs Japan football match. “They are building these overpriced stadiums and are not worrying about the situation of their own people.”
  • There was a protest today on Maracanã, one of the stadiums where 2013 Confederations Cup is taking place, a match between Italy and Mexico. And yes, it was violent.
  • In all of these cases, most of Brazil’s media websites (like Veja, one of the most important and influential Brazilian magazines) blamed the protesters, saying the police was violent because they were violent first, saying the protesters deserved what they got, calling them troublemakers (among other names)
  • Even though “innocent people” (non-protesters) were injured by the police, like people passing by and reporters.
  • I won’t link you pictures of the victims specifically, but you can see some hereTW violence TW blood TW bruises.

Examples of the police being violent with protestants (TW violence): 

Repercussion:

So please, hear us out! Don’t let the media fool you about what is going on. Support us, we want to change Brazil! I will be updating this post with more information and news! Please reblog, watch this video and support us!

Brazil is protesting against corruption, police brutality, for better schools, hopitals and public transportation, for the media show the truth and not to repress protests. Who can not go to the streets can help supporting the moviment, sharing in social networking. The protest that started with some people in one city now is in the whole country with thousands of people. Right now the protesters are in the capital in front of the National Congress of Brazil, the legislative body of Brazil’s federal government.
