Brazil's Left Parties Are Old and Bureaucratized, Warns MST's Leader PDF Print E-mail
2013 - July 2013
Written by Nilton Viana   
Monday, 08 July 2013 15:53

Protesters in the streets of Brazil"It is time for the government to ally with the people or pay the bill in the future." This is one of the evaluations of João Pedro Stédile, from the national coordination of the MST (Landless Movement) on demonstrations across the country. According to him, there is an urban crisis installed in Brazilian cities, provoked by this stage of finance capitalism.

"People are living a hell in the big cities, losing three, four hours a day in traffic when they could be with family, studying or having cultural activities," he says.

For the MST leader, the reduction of transit fares mattered a lot to all the people and this was the appeal of the Free Pass Movement, which knew how to summon for the mobilization in the name of the interests of the people.

In this interview, Stédile talks about the character of these mobilizations, and makes a call: we must be aware of the nature of these demonstrations and we must all go to the streets to contest for the hearts and minds and to politicize this youth which has no experience of the class struggle. "The young are fed up with the methods of commercial bourgeois politics," he notes.

And he warns: the most serious target was that the institutional left parties, all of which have been formed by these methods. They are aged and bureaucratized. Popular forces and leftist parties need to put all their energies to go to the street, as is happening, in every city, in every demonstration, an ongoing ideological debate on the struggle of class interests. "We need to explain to the people who are their main enemies."

What is your analysis of the recent protests which have been shaking Brazil in the last few weeks? What is the economic basis for them to happen?

There are many assessments for the reasons that led to these demonstrations. I agree with the views of Professor Erminia Maricato, who is our greatest expert on urban issues and has acted in the Ministry of the Cities during Olivio Dutra's [Ed. a founder of the Workers Party, mayor of Porto Alegre, governor of Rio Grande de Sul and Minister of Cities] administration.

She defends the thesis that there is an urban crisis in Brazilian cities caused by the current stage of financial capitalism. There has been enormous speculation on the property market which raised rents and the price of land by 150% in the last three years. Capital has financed car sales, without government control, in order to send money abroad, causing chaos in our traffic.

In the last ten years, there was no investment in public transport. The housing program "My Home, My Life" pushed the poor into the outskirts of the city, without any infra-structure. All that has generated a structural crises in which people live in hell, in big cities, wasting three, four hours a day in traffic, when they could be with their family, studying or involved in cultural activities.

Add to that the awful quality of public services in special health care, and even education, from elementary school, secondary school where students leave without being able to write a composition. And college education has been turned into shops selling diplomas in installments, which is where 70% of all college students are.

What happened in political terms?

The fifteen years of neoliberalism added to the last ten years of a class composition government rendered politics solely hostage of capital interests. Political parties have become old in their practices and became mere acronyms agglutinating, in its large majority, opportunists aspiring to rise up in public positions or fight over public resources or serve their own personal interests.

The youth born after the "Diretas Já" [direct presidential elections now], did not have the opportunity to participate in politics. Today, in order to dispute any position, for example, for councilor [city council], you need to have more than one million reais [approximately 2 reais to the dollar]; a deputy costs around ten million.

Capitalists pay and later politicians follow orders. Young people are fed up with this bourgeois way of doing politics, strictly commercial. But what is even more serious was the fact that political parties from the institutional left, all of them, adapted to those methods. And, therefore, provoked a sharp aversion to the way political parties act.

The youth is not apolitical, quite the opposite, so much so that they took politics to the streets, even without being aware of its meaning. But they are saying that they can't take it anymore watching these political practices on TV, which kidnapped people's vote, based on lies and manipulation.

And why did these demonstrations only break out now?

Probably it was a sum of several factors of mass psychology nature, rather than a planned political decision. Added to that the climate mentioned above, plus accusations of over billing for the construction of the stadiums, which the people felt was an insult. Let's look at some facts.

Globo TV received from the state government and the city of Rio, 20 million reais of public money, to organize a two hour "little show" for the draw of the games of the Confederation Cup. The stadium in Brasília cost R$ 1.4 billion and there are no public buses in the city!

It is an explicit dictatorship imposed by FIFA which all governments submitted to. The reopening of Maracanã [Rio de Janeiro's main stadium] was a slap on the face of the Brazilian people. The pictures were clear, in the greatest temple of the world's football there was not a single black or mixed race person! And the rise of bus fares was the last drop. It was only a spark to ignite a generalized feeling of revolt, indignation. Just as well the youth woke up.

Why have the working class not taken to the streets yet?

It is true the working class did not go to the streets yet. Those who are on the streets are the children from the middle classes, the low middle classes, and also some young people which Andre Singer would call sub-proletariat, who study and work at the service sector, who experienced an improvement in their consumption status, but want to be heard.

The reduction of the bus fare was very important for people as a whole and that is where the Free Fare Movement got it right, they were able to call for mobilizations according to the interests of the people. And the people supported the demonstrations and that was expressed by the popularity index of the youth, especially when they were repressed.

The working class takes longer to move, but when they move, they affect capital directly. Something that has not happened yet. I think that the organizations that are mediating with the working classes have not yet understood the moment and are still a bit shy. But the class, as a class is prepared to struggle, I think.

Look, the number of strikes for better salaries has already recovered to the patterns of the 80's. I think it is just a matter of time, and if the mediations strike the right banners to motivate the class to move. In the last few days, one can see that in some smaller cities and in the outskirts of large cities demonstrations are already starting to have very clear demands. That is very important.

And what about you from the MST and peasants, who have not moved yet?

It is true. In the capitals where we have settlements and family farmers nearby, we are already participating. I am also witness that we were very well received with our red flag and our demand for Agrarian Reform and healthy and cheap foods for everyone. I think in the next few weeks there will be a greater accession, including demonstrations from peasants on roads and counties in the countryside. Our militancy is eager to join the fight and mobilize. I hope they also move soon.

What is your opinion about the source of the violence that is happening in some demonstrations?

First of all let's relativize things. The bourgeoisie through its TV channels is using the tactics of scarring people, showing only images of troublemakers and riots. They are a minority and are insignificant compared to the thousands of people who have mobilized. The right is only interested in planting in the imaginary of the population that it is only a mess, and at the end if there is chaos, blame the government and demand the presence of the army. I hope the government will not make the mistake of calling the national guard and the army to repress the demonstrations. That is exactly what the right dreams about!

The way the military police intervenes is provoking those scenes of violence. There are organized right wing groups with instructions to provoke and loot. In São Paulo there are fascist groups acting. In Rio de Janeiro there are organized militias protecting the conservative politicians. And of course, there is also the lumpen that turn up in every popular mobilization, be it in stadiums, carnival, even in church celebrations, trying to take some personal benefits.

Is there a class struggle on the streets then or is it only the youth manifesting their indignation?

Of course there is class struggle on the streets. Even though it is still concentrated in ideological debate. What is even more serious, the actual mobilized youth, due to its class origins, is not aware that is participating in ideological struggle. Look they are doing politics in its best possible way, on the streets.

And then, they write in their posters: we are against political parties and politics? That is why the messages in the posters have been so diffuse. It is happening in every city, each demonstration, a permanent ideological debate of class interests. Young people are being fought for by the ideas of the right and the left. By capitalists and by the working class.

What are the objectives of the right and its proposals?

The dominant class, capitalists and their ideological spokespersons who show up on TV every day, have a major objective: to wear out as much as possible the government of Dilma, to weaken the organization of the working class, to weaken the proposals for structural changes in Brazilian society and to win the elections of 2014, in order to recompose a total hegemony in the command of the Brazilian state, which is now in dispute.

In order to reach those objectives they are still feeling their way, alternating tactics. Sometimes they provoke violence, to take the focus from the objectives of the youth. Other times they use the posters of the youth to carry their messages. For example, the demonstration on Saturday , however small, in São Paulo, was totally manipulated by right wing sectors who guided it only for the struggle against PEC 37[Ed. PEC 37 is a constitutional amendment to limit the ability to investigate corrupt officials, rejected by Congress on June 26, 2013], with the same posters ... same calls.

Certainly the majority of young people don't even know what that is all about. And it is a secondary theme for the working class, but the right is trying to raise the flags of morality, as was done with UDN [Ed. União Democrática Nacional – National Democratic Union – political party formed to oppose Getúlio Vargas and generally supported the 1964 military coup] in the past.

I have seen in social networks controlled by the right that their flags, besides PEC 37 are: for Renan to leave the Senate; CPI [Parliamentary Commission of Investigation] or transparency of the expenditures of the Cup; to declare corruption as a heinous crime and the end of the special forum for politicians. Now, fascist groups rehearse "OUT DILMA" and petition for impeachment.

Luckily those banners have nothing to do with the living conditions of the masses, even if they can be manipulated by the media. Objectively speaking, they are a shot in the foot. After all, it is the Brazilian bourgeoisie, its entrepreneurs and politicians who are the greatest practitioners of corruption and the ones who corrupt. Who appropriated the enormous cost of the World Cup? Globo TV and construction companies!

What are the challenges for the working class, popular organizations and political parties?

There are many challenges. First of all we must keep in mind the nature of those demonstrations, and we must all go to the streets, to fight for hearts and minds in order to politicize this youth who has no experience with class struggle.

Second, the working class must move. Go to the streets, protest in the factories, fields and construction sites, as Gerald Vandré [Brazilian singer who opposed the military dictatorship and was exiled] would say. Raise their demands to solve concrete class problems, in economic and political terms.

We need to take the initiative and guide the debate in society and demand the approval of the project to reduce the working hours per week to 40 hours; demand priority of public investments in health, education and agrarian reform. To do so the government must cut interest rates and transfer resources from the primary surplus, those R$ 200 billion that every year go to 20,000 rich, rentiers, creditors of an internal debt that never existed, and switch those resources for productive and social investments.

We need to approve an urgent system to be in place in the next elections, a robust political reform, which at least institutes the exclusive public financing of campaigns. The right to revoke mandates and self-called popular referendums.

We need a tax reform and the return of ICMs [tax over the circulation of commodities] for primary exports, penalizing the wealth of the rich, in order to ease taxes on the poor, who are the ones who pay more. We need the government to stop oil auctions and all privatizing concessions of minerals and other public areas. There is no point in applying the sum of oil royalties in education, if these royalties represent only 8% of the oil revenues, and the other 92% will go to transnational corporations that will have the oil in the auctions!

We need a structural urban reform, and a return to prioritizing zero tariff and quality public transport. It has been proven that it is not expensive, nor difficult to have free transport for the masses of the capitals. And control real estate speculation.

Finally, we need to use this opportunity and approve the project of the national conference of communication, broadly representative, for the democratization of the media. In order to end the monopoly of Globo, and for the people and their popular organizations to have broad access to communicate, creating their own media, with public resources. I have heard from several young people who are networking the marches, which perhaps is the only common call that unifies all of them: Down with the Globo monopoly!

But for these calls to have resonance in society and pressure the government and politicians, it will only happen if the working class moves.

You, from social movements, submitted a letter asking for a meeting with President Dilma [Rousseff] and she accepted and replied on TV, what are you talking to her?

Hopefully this audience will actually happen. Then, certainly social movements will indicate their young representatives who took to the streets, and who will bring to her the platform that I have described, I hope she will be sensible enough to listen to the young people.

What should the government do now?

I hope the government will have the sensibility and intelligence to take advantage of this support, this call that comes from the streets, which is only a synthesis of a diffuse conscience in society, that it is time to change. And change in favor of the people. To do that the government needs to face the dominant class, in all aspects.

To face the bourgeoisie rentier, transferring interest payments to investments in areas that will solve the problems of the people. To promote political and tax reforms immediately. To put forward the approval of the democratization project for the media. To create mechanisms for substantial investments in public transport, towards a zero fare. To accelerate the agrarian reform and a plan for the production of healthy foods for the internal market.

To assure the immediate application of 10% of the GDP in public resources for education in all levels, from kindergarten in large cities, to quality primary education and culminating in the universalization of the access of the youth to public university.

Without that, there will be disappointment and the government will hand over to the right the initiative of the calls, which will take over our demonstrations, aiming at wearing out the government until the 2014 elections. It is time for the government to ally to the people, or else it will pay the bill in the future.

What perspectives those demonstrations can bring to the country in the next few months?

Everything is an open question at the moment. Because the youth and the masses are in contention. That is why the popular forces must summon all their energies to take to the streets. Demonstrate, carry their flags of struggle for the reforms that really matter to people.

Because the right will do the same and bring their flags, conservative, backward, criminalizing and stigmatizing the ideas of social change. We are right in the middle of an ideological battle, nobody knows what the result will be. In each city, each demonstration, we will have to dispute for hearts and minds. And those who are left out, will be out of history.

Prof.João Pedro is an intellectual, ASP. Remember that thanks to such "intellectuals" and "artists", we won our liberty,freedom, justice and freedom of of speech. So stop scolding this segment of the society.

Also I suggest you be prepared for the "Geada Negra" that is going to hit us in the next few days. You may be interested in knowing that the last time this phenomenon occurred was in 1975 (July 18th, to be precise). It wiped out our coffee and orange crops. I wonder how it is going to affect the food prices. smilies/cry.gif

yeah,joao !! comedy, i love comedy, humor, fiction, toungue in cheek...keep it up , because i need a laugh...i wonder if afro brazilians feel like they got liberated? they seem left out of that society and have created a sub economy of their own

i had to watch leblon on tv , get burned to the ground and broken...i almost sympathised with the protesters on this one...they directed trafic to get out of the way instead of tying it up...as they tore up the barrio, residents blinked their lights to show support, they stoned globo and went to the governers house to protest...that is what i said i wanted to see...but , then i realised the residents would wake up , and for those who want to do bank business...forget it...for those who had businesses destroyed, well just tough for them...

yeah, im not thrilled about the cold coming..i have business in salvador and recife in august, i wish i could leave tomorow...im actualy going to see that crazy drummer at brognoli accoustic at cic...want to go?

How delighted I am to once again 'find' there is Truth in Brazil(!) ...after these many years of this forums moderator trying to convince me that MST was all but forgotten.

Did we not speak of these very things prior to the "WAKE UP!" call of our last doscussion of ""Horizontal & Vertical Expansion" at the expense of the majority. Do the readers of this forum now 'understand' that the Truth resonates around the World, making it the most powerful weapon on Earth(?) I say this not to promote myself or others, but that clearly The Message goes out, and what returns is Brazil once again trying to throw of the chains of the Plantaition and its overseers. Who would 'imagine' that these 'people' would protest the capitalism of their national sport(?)

So, I have called, around the world, that these 'games' be exposed as a capitalist scheme to ' entertain' the masses and the world for the glorification of Capitalist Imperialism, which has its sights squarely on raping Brazil and its people of their resources and heritage(...and I speak not of Ricardo Amaral's ancestry)...(!)

Boycott Brazil2016 will take more education of the kind delivered by Prof. Stedile, but make no mistake, because the powers in Brasilia do understand, ...if there are not "real reforms" there will be "real consequences"(!!!)

I wish everyone well, and for myself I have recently become reconnected with my Holy Roman Catholic Patron Dorothy Day(perhaps the archives of this forum will further enlighten you), ...for I have loved her always, as she did me. It is my daily prayer that I may live to carry her message of Love and Compassion, and that her sanctification by Rome shall be swift, and the World will see 'true reform' there as well.

if you think stedile is the truth, you got your head up your ass again, cata

you do know on some of these protersts, the syndicates paid people to protest...just like mst has done, as i pointed out

now , aint that a bitch, these mother fickers are ranting their marxist bull crap but have to actualy pay people to get some kind of presence in their protest

and i say f**k the protesters that just f**k up hard working peoples daily lives like what happens where i live...they just mf**k with public transport...all of them..the student / teachers, syndicate and organised crime...they f**k with the most vulnerable people of all, those who need public transport

at least some of the rio protesters went to the governers house, i like that, go to the house and offices of the elite, dont f**k with the most vulnerable people

im sorry to see molotov c**ktails thrown directly at police, and they proved on tv , today it was protesters, and not hidden police...if there is a violent retaliation by police, no one should wonder why

stedile of mst is an ass hole...f**k him

you know, i see thjis sob stdile, on documentaries, running his diarria of the mouth crud about marxism and capatilism...

the only reason this walking bowel movement gets to run his mouth and mst gets away with rattling its machetes trying to threaten us with violence if we dont give in, is because, a brutal dictatorship cracked down on people who beleived in violent che gueverra revolutions, many of them went to cuba, china and the soviet union to study how to make bombs, rob banks and kidnap and assasinate people...the dictatorship cracked down too hard on middle class and elite students , polititions and media people...it was wrong the way it was done (nothing wrong with making sure there wasnt going to be a che revolution), and, because of the brutality on the middle class (because you sure can know the brutality and torture go on in the poor communities more now than it ever did in the dictatorship), red flaggers cant be persacuted in any way

they can run amok in society, do what they want and say what they want and no one will crack down on them

fuk stedile. mst gets huge amounts of money from the government , anyway...and he pays his protesters...what a farce...what a bunch of bulls**t from the past...from people who cant even admit the ideology they breathe for eliminated 70 million in china, 30 million in the soviet union, 6 million in cambodia, and makes everybody suffer equaly with racist classist health care in cuba , and a horrible marxist education...

I think the family came from Switzerland (the land of our departed friend ch.c), though I ain't too sure.

that is one of things that is most disgusting about the extreme red flaggers, their dogmad stiff robotic rhetoric is the most disgusting sounding crap to listen to....they rattle it off with absolutly no respect for the truth of what has happened...how many millions have died under the ideologies they champion...its pathetic....

...which would pay for the Glorious Stadiums, which do not seat poor people or middle-class(without a months salary(!)

Surely the Grand Lady in Brazilia must recognize that she has the 'wrong recipe' for the people who thought her a patron of the masses. Maybe the Brazilian 'sugary speech' is finding the same results as BHO's(?) The directions for Brazilian economy does not fit the instructions from Washington, London, and Berlin, huh? The "consequences-of-success" will become apparent when the 'entertainment' is over, b-b-but the people are not amused with magic tricks that steals the coins from their pockets(!)

So, Mr. Asp, ...how much do those cabanas cost, what price before 2014, and what price in 2016? Apparently you have the means to absorb the Horizontal & Vertical Expansion, right(?) As an ex-pat, you take for granted many things, ...such as the price of the ticket to the Grand Games(!) Knowing all the time that while most Brazilians will pay for your fat arse to sit in those seats, they will not be allowed anywhere near those games of Roman Antiquity(!)

Joao, it is good to see this forum has not lost its objectivity as to subject matter, but once again I am disappointed in the 'female' participation, but as was the case with most of the women in my life, they did learn from birth to avoid the presence of 'snakes'.

hey, dickhead, cata, why dont you try to get my real point of view right instead of interjecting your bulls**t interpretation

ass hole, im not in favor of higher bus fares, youf**khead, i dont have a car and take public transportation

i amagainst how the people who put together these demonstrations , who think like you do,dont give a flying f**k to the hard working people in everyday life who have to take public transport , have their lives and way to get to work, taken hostage by some teachers who want to make their mark, naive pampered students, syndicates, who bully their ways onto everyone , not really thinking about what the real consequences are, and even organised crime gets into the f**king act

if you lived here , you might get that aspect, since you dont, you can only make silly ass pot shots from a far

you also dont get, it would be a thousand times wiser to protest directly against the corruption instead of dragging the copa and olympics into it, which will be good things for brazil...the problems were independant of the copa,and have been festering for a while...this seperates the bulls**t protesters, from the ones who make sence about what they are doing

i couldnt afford a ticket to the copa, so kiss my ass cata, but ,like millions of poor brazilians, i will be enjoying the festivities on tv, and will be taking great pride inthe selections accomplishments, like in the copa das confederacaoes...what the f**k do you ass suckers for pseudo marxism filled with its disgusting dogma, do for fun?

"and will be taking great pride inthe selections accomplishments, like in the copa das confederacaoes." asp, I had no clue you were as prideful both in the Brasileiro sense and Fluminese sense like me. With your tendency to fight with everyone and everything I would have guessed your predilection (or those of your household and extended family like mine) was Flaming-guesta.

The 6 percent increase in bus fares (which is like the second such similarly sized increase in the past eight years) doesn't even come close to touching the inflation increases on so many other things including basic dietary staples over the same period. It's now suggested that that was for paying for the Copa and the Olympics infrastructure improvements and increases ahead of the fact? When has Brazil done anything afore-hand much less plan out the money needed in the future? Does anyone get it yet?

Left leaning? asp, it really doesn't matter what your swagger, left, right or centrist, the point is to just plain be right and do what is right. LC, since you have clearly experienced a dearth of women in your life, it's very understandable that you have no clue the Brasileiras actually have a unique penchant for cobras and as Amazon folklore as told through western stories would convey, they have no fear what-so-ever about taking care of a little asp, especially their own.

You all know very well how this goes, ....as well you know I have no sense of nationality(that was over before some of you were even born!). Yet, since you are so very charmed by snakes and other low creatures, it is no surprise that Corruption and Copa are the recipe which is the daily diet. Not that I am not surrounded by the same, since it has almost cost me my life twice in the last month!

Truly, I envy your snake(...a sin for sure smilies/smiley.gif He has the best of both; US citizen living the Brasileira life. The car thing is just crap, because a personal car in Rio would be like advertising he's a sucker for the government, gangs, police, and everyone else. Mr. Asp knows very well his car would not last long, and the 'paperwork' would expose him to many unpleasant questions(?)

Joao, it has been many many years that I have enjoyed this forum. Probably longer than even 'you' can tell. Certainly long before my grands were even thought of. Even before I ever visited your wonderful homeland. Have you not read MLK's speech concerning Venezuela(?) Do you not know how long Assata Shakur(#1 US Terrorist) has been in Cuba? Truly, your sense of distance and 'presence' amuses me(!)

My penchant for beautiful(smart) women has not always resulted in that which I wished. Somehow the affairs of the heart have left me wounded as no one can see. The scars do not show, but the pain is still like yesterday. My travels have not allowed me the comfort of home and hearth, so....

Enjoy my friends your Grand Games, but do not forget that the "Consequences of Success" are also unexpected(!) Brasil also is like a beautiful woman, but not so smart, and I am afraid that history will repeat itself, because "Plantation" women do not refuse the seed of their master(!) PERHAPS A THOUGHT FOR THE WOMAN PRESENTLY PRESIDING(???)

oh man , here the f**k we go, the punk ass moralising and pseudo pshyco analising, mother fukers like cata revel in

hey, you punk bitch, i attack your ideas, your stupid opinions, i dont f**king attack you or what you do

you dont dont know dick f**king squat about me , and your stereyotyped, far left pseudo marxist analysis smacks of the logic i have come to detest coming from people who think like you

its because i see through the bulls**t of your logic,you mother fukers need to go back and tweak your agendas and try to get truth involved instead of threatening, lying, and personaly attacking someone who can smell the diarria of the mouth that is the rhetoric coming from you all

if i hook up with women here, its because i treat them right

you dont know s**t about brazil

cata, im going to detonate now, but not on you personaly, but ,one of your opinions, the one about "the master ...seed...women on the plantation'

there is so much wrong with that....first,there are a lot of rich women here, equating brazilian women to naive plantation women is demeaning, and a put down...living in brazil, i dont think brazilian women are like plantation slaves

but, im attracted to black afro brazilian women, and let me tell you, i dont care if you are a white racist or black activist ,or yellow, red, green or purple, no mother fuker is going to tell me , or analyse what color woman i will date or be with

im dead serious, any mother fuker that thinks like that better get the fuk out of my face fast, i see this bulls**t agenda creeping up on blogs and it can kiss my ass...you all really are scraping the bottom of the barrell with that logic, flush it down the toilet , it aint s**t

i want to make that really clear to any one who might be reading this who thinks that way....get it the fuk out of my face...and that logic can kiss my ass

cata, just because joao, one brazilian has an opinion, you start demeaning brazilians on a whole...there are plenty of brazilians who think just like you....get for real...people who think like you need a hell of a reviving...if someone doesnt agree with you about chavez and castro, all you can do is demean them...chavez and castro are the same as bush and chenney and rumsfeild...until you all get that, you all are just flapping in the wind

i mean , can you beleive it , up in the states , now, they have some activists and blog people circulating the notion that any white person with a minority is some racist blast from the plantation era, they get nauseaus to see a white person with their ethnic pursuasion...whether mexican, black, asian, indian etc

i mean what the fuk is that? if they bring that sh!t down here to brazil, there are millions of women of color who will stone them the fuk out of town...just ask adrian, he is frustrated as h ell to see so many young fine black brazilian women hooking up with older white europeans...im frustrated at that , too...i wish it was me...

but, what a fuked up agenda...try to make interracial couples uncomfortable...that is some serious bullsh!t and should be cut the fuk out of the agenda...its some weak @ss sh!t...and, can you beleive some activists are booking on that sh!t now, running their mouths with that sh!t, implicating their own ethnic background for hooking up with a white person and implicating the white person for being with their ethnic background...they are as fuked up as the klan ...i got to have my defences up the same way against both of them...mother fuk both of them

LC, I do apologize for picking at your ancient wounds: "Somehow the affairs of the heart have left me wounded as no one can see. The scars do not show, but the pain is still like yesterday." We all know how badly that affected ch.c. My empathy comes not without first hand experience of same.

asp, I see no reason to berate you for your preferences and I agree in part with what you are saying: if she's young and or beautiful and or of cor; there, for the most part, I would encounter nothing but socially polite jealousy when people see us go by, stop for a bite to eat, grab a cold one at the local bar, wander through the lojas or malls searching for something that is needed, hang on the beach, jump on an intercity or interstate bus to go visit distant friends or family or take a holiday; and here ... In either locale, no one truly knows her economic status until she unexpectedly whips out HER credit card and pays our bill.

Joao, can you copy and paste (at least excerpts) of my comment re: Mr. Lpp & Ricky & your libelous name calling that I finally managed to get push into under a thread on the other site under Ricky's last article on this site where it properly belonged? - I still apparently have no clue how the censoring functions here work.

for sure , simps, to think brazilian women are equal to plantation slaves and not very smart is revealing the true feelings of lolyd cata about brazilian people

you know, cata, there is a lot to admire about you,you are of indiginous background, participated in viet nam , not to judge whether it was right or wrong but just to say, i respect your experiance, raised in the south bronx etc

its your head and your opinions now that show, you took a wrong turn...many so called activists today are taking a wrong turn...especialy those that think che, hugo and fidel are just hunky dory and farc are the good guys..then when you put in this mother fuking bullsh!t about if im having sex with brazilian women, its something like a master and slave relationship on the plantation, and the women arnt very smart, which is a trend i see on some activist blogs these days...well, its fuked up...its top grade bullsh!t, coming from the same place as the klan....

all the mother fukers coming from this angle can kiss my @ss. you are fuking losing with that attitude...mother fuking marxist leaning ass holes love to threaten, guilt trip and isolate and eliminate people...this philosophy eliminates all the people of color in relationships with white people..just cuts them out from your agenda...huge amounts of people...good people...because dick heads cant accept them because they go out with white people...why the fuk do they have to be scrutinised?

i dont give a fuk,mother fuk that agenda and it can kiss my ass and ill get in the face of any mother fuker that brings that s**t around me...

and bottom line, those mother fukers can go out on their dry rotten limb and fignt their fight on a diseased branch,ill stick with the huge amount of great people that are in interracial relationships or arnt uptight about them, and we will fight our fight ...and you mother fukers get the fuk away from us...go rot out on your pseudo marxist diseased branch...go salute che , hugo and fidel and how you hate capatalism and america and then how you hate to see white people dating your particular ethnic background, how it reminds you of the master on the plantation...

I got to thinking about what the Brasil consulate sends to people that aren't brasileiro that have sent them a query for information. What they send back is nothing more than a couple of different sized placeholder images with the national flag apparently waving in the wind. No real information, no kind of response like you would expect. Then I think about how many times I've stood at attention and saw Ordem e Progresso hoisted, flying high, proudly taking or being in the position it deserves and, in my own humble way, showed it total respect, as much or more so as any Brasilian in the area. Now I'm drawn to think about what Joao just said (although it was deeply coded). He's as braz as they come, aged in as it were. But with age, visual aberrations kick in even while the mind stays sharp. When Joao tries to read those words on the flag rippling and wavering in the wind, what he reads is Odor and Promessa. Something all, both foreign and domestic, have sadly come to expect.

L.C., my dear fellow. When people start getting older, some become bolder & others paranoiac. I wonder which category you belong to?
smilies/wink.gifsmilies/cheesy.gif

As for your comments regarding Assange, Manning & Snowden:

This morning I read the news that a "Religious Family" was trying to "flee" the U.S. "over what they consider government interference in religion". They were trying to reach the tiny nation of Kiribati where they could live happily without the interference of the govt.

Lloyd, the story of this family reminds me of that of Rev.Jones in Guyana some 3 decades ago.But in this instance Kiribati is lucky that the God created storms and guided the family elsewhere and spared that poor nation (which seems to be sinking) from entering into a diplomatic crises with a superpower.

The point I am trying to make is the citizens of every country have grouse against their respective governments. Some take sensible and pacific measures to "protest". Others resort to drastic measures like the three you mentioned. The latter attract "public sympathy" for a while (thanks to the press) and the same public forgets them in a few months or years.smilies/sad.gif

// well, you chose to not pay your taxes...and, i wont judge you on that // - asp

When I was young and illiterate, a very serious professor of history taught me how to "read between the lines", ...of what people say, do, intend. It is a 'skill' which has more than once saved my life(!)

I never said, "I didn't pay my taxes...(?) I said I never 'reported' to the IRS(!) They are not of 'any' consequence to me, because "constitutionally" I am not bound to 'answer' to such agencies of the American Regime(-!-) They, in fact, did challenge me on this, about 10 years ago. smilies/shocked.gif ...and now, "for the record", I am one of the few Americans with a 'written apology' from the bastards(!!!)

*** Perhaps, under the scrutiny of an avid researcher, one 'might' find the 'evidence' that I was Julian Assange before the world knew of such a person(?)

*** Perhaps, under the scrutiny of an avid researcher, one 'might' find the 'evidence' that I was Bradley Manning before the world knew of such a person(?)

*** Perhaps, under the scrutiny of an avid researcher, one 'might' find the 'evidence' that I was Edward Snowden before the world knew of such a person(?)

So, ...*my opinion* of such persons, and *your opinion* of such persons may differ, but until you have done your *research*, ...well, it's just an opinion, which may or may not be worthy of comment(?) That you *fail* to render an intelligent comment is of no 'consequence', since I give you the benefit of the doubt(illiteracy), not the scorn of anger(ignorance) - "how could you possibly know?", since the 'proof' would earn you that "well-deserved bullet".

Being as "The Truth" is a very dangerous pursuit, I only envy you your ignorance, which as I have told you before; "Ignorance is Popular"

The IRS Testimony

There have been times when the Federales have challenged me, and I have 'never' even flinched at their absurd antics(...including a Cannabis charade!)

As a 'gift' to friends, I will allow 'anyone' to ask the IRS(publicly) "The Truth" of *one question*; True or False(?)

"When Lloyd Cata had money he gave more than he could have, and when he didn't have money he gave more than he should have"(-!-) True or False(-?-)

For those who have given Blood&Treasure, there is no recompense(!), but I will not be silent under the "dictates of tyrants", for I have paid Caesar his due...(-!-) My freedom is 'earned'(?), ...and now I endeavor to prevent others, including the government, from 'stealing' my Truth, as well as my earnings(!!!)

Don't let him kid you about that "humble peasant" thing and how he was raised IN a La Paz orphanage vs being raised NEAR there and was actually a biological product of the murderous lot of ex ... that were doing their "experiments" there.

Another "homework" assignment for ya asp, try to get the latest estimates of the street value of the mother nature's most notorious and useful weed being trafficked from Mexico to the EUA and the percentage that represents out of the total illicit drug trade. With all the people hurt and killed in association with all of that, I personally have had to become a conscientious objector to it's "harmless" consumption status. Those brown and black and yellow and white and red and green and purple and any other color people who partake, are clearly supporting atrocities.

aint this a mother fuking bitch, the guy who doesnt live in brazil,who doesnt know what is happening on the ground here, thinks im superimposing my issues as brazils issues...sorry, dopey, that is what you are doing

i mean really, anyone who spewed that the usa is going to invade brazil for oil and the amazon, in the last 12 years, but didnt acknowledge the absolute flooding of brazil in that period of crack and cocaine, and the serious decimation of the fabric of brazilian society because of that , has their head right up their ass...and i linked it right up and chavez's involvement...my issues, my ass...

brazil is the number one user of crack cocaine now...did you hear that blanchette, since you came back on and posted...you mocked me for stating these real problems before, how wrong you were...which is why i dont like your ass, you go mocking people for being right...that is pure bullsh!t on your part...all i see is reports of various crack dens that have escalated all over brazil...and the devastating health problems it incurs

and hell yes, the end of our bus stop has become a crack den, the organised crime gangs, taking bus burning pages from farc, that they did business with, have held our city hostage when they want to, so that s**t affects brazil much more than some threat of a usa invasion...i mean really, it is pathetic when people cant acknowledge the real truth

foul mouthed? what is really foul is bullsh!t political agendas from meely mouth pseudo marxist dogmad rhetoric that can kiss my ass

simp, its bulls**t to blame the user for stupid laws put on the books thanks to anslinger and the hearst lobby...if society cant correct its own idiot laws it put in place that really created this condition, then , it deserves to reap the chaos from it...like down here, people wont face the crack cocaine truth and its origins, and society is paying a price for it...crack is bad for you, pot is not

yeah, so joao, very interesting seeing how the manifestations are panning out now...

its absolutly mostly young white kids, probably students...but, you have seen doctor strikes, police strikes, and there was one demonstration i thought was lost in the shuffle...the pedreiro who was taken to the police station and then was dead....yet, ones like that, seem to just get lost in the shuffle, its like evevybody is protesting for this and that and no real focus or real preasure on the most important issues.

no real involvement with the actualy real brazilian people...the ones who have to go out to work everyday and pay larger bus fares and get a low wage...sure the syndicates have to get involved , but, they seem to be plodding down a worn down aproach, that is more dramatic show than any real creative maneuvering and solid focus...look at the bus strikes...ridulous, cruelest to the people that use the bus , and very disruptive to dealing with preasures in life like getting to a doctor or paying bills in a certain place .

its very interesting that so many images going on are like snapshots from the late 60's...the kind of films of people protesting, unions striking...unrest in the streets...back then the authorities hunted , killed , and tortered people who were robbing banks ,assasinating people and kidnapping, today they hunt and kill drug traficers and marijuana dealers, who also kill and rob , and torture them also

the administration is left...its the pt...the biggest screamiers of all, can you imagine if they werent the power ? haha i mean really , can you imagine if they didnt have the administration how much noise they would be making? all the demonstrations are like people trying to pseudo emulate that dynamic...its definitly part of the picture, it really isnt the conservative right getting out and protesting...there is no conservative right except the evnagelicos...so , where are they going to go? who do they think is in power, that they voted in?

everybody saw the copa and the olympics on the table and the understanding of the investment etc...why was there no opisition at that time of substance?

is this all just pseudo show , "look at me, i made the news tonight", but, really, what are the real problems of brazil and how do you really face them ?

its actualy disturbing when people who talk you kind of bullsh!t , cant ackownledge the damage the flood of cocaine and crack and arms have done to brazil in the last 12 or 13 years, and, chvez has a hand in it, farc is seriously dirty and guilty of their part, and i never said they were the only ones, but they are 30 percent

my main point to hammer you and this blog , from the line of people who come in here and know nothing of the real on the ground reality and superimpose your pseudo marzist anti american government crap, is to show that this paranoid narrative of the usa getting ready to invade brazil is nothing but pure unadaltered crap..and if you really wanted to understand some of the things that are plauging the lives of people in this wonderful country , you would start getting this dynamic im talking about and how much damage crack and arms coming in brazil is doing to the fabric of society

Your figures seem to be incorrect. You guys are giving 1.5 B (and not T) to the Egyptians. Do you think the Saudis have promised 3-5 T to them? If such is the case and if I were Gen.El Sisi, I'd accept the generosity of the Saudi Monarchy (unless of course, the British Monarchy matches or betters the offer).

No asp, you are (which is something unusual for you), dead wrong. I don't "got jokes", I "am a joke" and there's not a g-damn thing any of us here can do about being made one and the same.

As to consumers, although a bit cryptically, I already said that at this late stage even making things 100 por cento legal, 100 por cento sem impostos wouldn't fix it. You would still have NYC with a 25 percent black population committing over 60 percent of the homicides as mello as they were or could be made to be. With the declaration of stop and search practices as being unconstitutional, for sure there will be a reversal seen in the declining homicide rates along with a reduction of those unfortunate young black men that have been so horrendously biased against and incarcerated for being out in the street in high crime rate and poverty stricken areas with nothing but a bit a weed on them doing nobody no harm with no intent to do otherwise (when they simply could have just left their personal stash at home with their kids, ma and pa).

the obstacles and discrimination for black americans is noted and documented and many poor black americans found economic upward mobility in the illegal drug trade while their white counter parts had more oportunities to move upward in the legal world...this is fact

im a beleiver that our country and brazil still have to face our slave legacy from the past...to not do so , only agravates and perpetuates so many of the real problems we face in our societies daily...with the ceos and top 2 percent widening the gap between rich and poor, you know who is on the bottom of the rung

In fact, the Times becomes a benefit to Brazil in that they can/will print stories that Estadao would not touch(*!*) The bet is how long before the Times appears in a Brazilian Court(-?-) Certainly the Times reporters should have armored cars as standard procedure, given the life-expectancy of 'investigative reporters' in Brazil(...?) Hopefully, they will learn 'all' the local dances demanded of the Brazilian Press, but the 'calculation' is that they will give Brazil an "International News" presence.

"The Double Game" - which is why there is still much 'suspicion' regarding #911Truth(*?*) The same Saudi-funded Mujahideen who fought the Soviets are regrouped to fight Assad, yet infiltrated by Al Qaeda. That was Mrs. Clinton's 'miscalculation' that she could do business with the Saudi-funded IslamicJihad, and Al Qaeda showed up(!!!) That is 'exactly' why the US gave the greenlight for the Egyptian coup; Al Qaeda showed up(***NSA***) Morsi and all MB were doomed at that point(...!) "ALL AGREED/3Amigos" that the stakes in Egypt were too great; better chaos and anarchy than Egypt become a haven for Al Qaeda. $B/$T doesn't matter, and neither do the lives of however many Egyptians must die, because in the Grand Game, they are no better than Palestinians anyway(???) Brazil would be wise to see clearly the "Lessons of Egypt", as would all Humanity(!!!) Imperialism has neither heart nor soul, b-b-but they do not like to lose money, because there must be a profit down the road, and 'rebuilding' Egypt will make some people very rich(...!))

Asp, you are quite well aware that there is a humongous majority of folks that have long past gotten over all that compared to those that created it. Is there a way to break the "culture" that has become indigenously perpetuating itself? You won't find the "escapees" in the half to several million dollar estates in my area offering to go back into the deteriorated central zones to try to un-deny or help their brethren to see the light of what the land of opportunity has afforded them to obtain.

Great comments on the "Arab Winter". The religious zealots (regardless of what religion they belong to) bother Brasilians, as we still pride ourselves a secular country. IMHO, the situation in Egypt is going to turn nastier, though the ordinary folks over there do not deserve it. The few Egyptians I have known seemed to be secular and tolerant to other religions & cultures.

The bad news is their Nobel Peace Laureate El-Badrei(?) has resigned as a minister. He could easily move back to the "West", like thousands of other wealthy Egyptians, if MB takes over that country. The Egyptian military seems to be in the same situation now as that of Iran in 1979.smilies/sad.gif

The Amazon Of The Future
written by Lloyd Cata, August 15, 2013
Simpleton 'understands', ...and presents the "Dilemma of Progress", i.e. "Going back is not an option"(!) #Truth...

Yet, 'every question', in and of itself, is a challenge(?), ...and the answer 'must', as a matter of 'fact', portray/address/depict some 'evidence' of Truth(!!!) All else is theory/conjecture/confusion, and lies(...?) Truly, much of what "I Think/I Know" can only be measured by my own #Ignorance(!...) The #Truth is hard, the #Journey is difficult, and the #Challenge has never been greater; in the history of Humanity, ...(!)

So, ..."what is #Progress(?), and how does it relate to Amazonia(...?)" Can I say this or that is #Truth? Yes, and No; (!) + (?) I 'know' Humanity must breathe for Life(!) I 'know' Freedom has no meaning in Death(!) I 'know' Humanity's Freedom, Life 'overcoming' Death, is directly related to the Earth and our relationship with our Environment; no matter 'where' we live((-!-) These things I know(!!!) There can be no 'contradiction' since the 1st Man walked the Earth(*?*) What I do not 'know' is how Humanity survives the Progress which threatens the very air I breathe(?) What I do not know is how far Progress will go before Life awakens Humanity to the Danger(?) Some say they 'know', some say they 'think', and some say 'why even ask the question'(...?) Can there be 'any' doubt that "The Amazon of the Future" will provide #TheTruth for all Humanity(???)

Brazil, and its neighbors say they will decide for Amazonia, and truly their Progress proceeds accordingly(...!) The Ice melts, the Trees become human waste products, and the Climate changes("Nothing in the Universe disappears! - Aristotle)

Once again, this I 'know', ..."Even the poor and illiterate know Injustice when they see it!". A man can live a life of many injustices, but when you threaten his Life..., even the mouse will strike back in 'any' manner suitable to the threat(*?*) "God does not like surprises, and that is why He sends Prophets". I take no credit for this; it is the Truth as I 'know' it(!...) Brazil 'decides' for itself, until that decision reveals what is Truth(?)

// Did Aristotle know the existence of the Americas? // - asp

Actually, he does account for "everything", yet even he pronounced that the 'minds' of poets, and artists, were unknown to him. So, yes, he understood imperialism/greed/avarice(mentor to Alexander the Great...what a discussion that is!!!), as well as faith/love/kindness(500yrs before Christ, and left 1/2 his wealth to Goddess Diana).

In the forum thread on "Rape" I did mention him with regard to analysis of US Military "Greek proclivities". However, this was in error on my part, because truly Aristotle would send such a dunce as myself to see "Plato"; who could, and would, regularly explore the minds of artists and poets. With respect to this, Socrates is well-suited for study. Did I not say I would like to bring the Greeks back to Broadway(?)

Is it that you -think- I don't 'understand' America, or just that I am displeased with the "American Agenda". Is it "understandable" that I would have been opposed to the Roman Agenda or the British Agenda? Truly, there are those who think I just 'opposed' and unpleasant, and that is fine(!...) Yet, I would not rest having it said that my own Ignorance was the product of false worship or illiteracy(...!) Agreement is not necessary for Truth(!!!)

In the Bronx, and the barrios of the US; the "crack-epidemic" wanes(-?-) The very nature of the addiction is being recognized, and "the people"; families, communities, Rappers, Hip-Hop artists, are beginning to recognize the destructive nature of the addiction "for everyone"(!!!) It was a terrible fire that burned very hot. Left dead and wounded all over the United States(...!) I have seen this phenomenon with heroin also(?...); real zombies who would kill their mother for fix, huh? This I have seen with my own eyes, and I do not shy away from the Truth(*!*) Everyone pays the price of ignorance, and the ones 'promoting' the ignorance are not who 'you' think they are, because History will educate you as to the 'nature' of drugs used as "weapons" of subjugation. THIS IS NOT NEW(*!*), ...and there are means, other than those used by Chairman Mao and others, in order to defeat this "enemy" of the state, community, and people. Of these means; education, decreasing poverty, and health services are forefront(?...) Of course, there are those who will hand out torches, and instruct you to burn down your own house(...?) As the smoke rises throughout the Middle-East, I only urge Brazil to recognize the Ignorance of such a course, because it also has History with those who set fires, only to "profit" from the results(!!!)

Chairman Mao, and the Tyrant Stalin
written by Lloyd Cata, August 16, 2013
[All will say, "I did it for you!"], ...until we discover the Truth(.)

In the History of Humanity, there are those of high and low station, who have advanced the Cause of Humanity, Freedom, and Progress. Though some remain, and shall forever remain, anonymous is unfortunate, but not without 'enduring substance'. Sometimes, the smallest act of kindness does not 'manifest itself' until a time that History shall open the eyes of the people(?) Who knew, when the seed was planted(-?-) As a person of Faith, I must profess to all Mankind, that "God Knew"(!!!)

When I say, "Even the poor and illiterate know Injustice when they see it", it is in 'recognition' of a Divine Truth(*!*) We, as a Collective Humanity[...for further discussion!] understand certain precepts from birth that will be Everlasting; Justice, Love, Mercy being recognized by all without lesson. Of course, the opposing precepts also being part of the 'package' of Being Human. Surely, the attainment of the Good is not without the struggle against the Evil(*!*) Which is Humanities 'only' measure of its 'existence'?

So, my friend, we may agree or not, as to the Good or Evil nature of Humanity and those who are past, ...and present(?) Yet, I invite always the perspective of History, if not 'opinion'. For "the people" Truth is evident; "This person is The Father of the Nation". In this, Ricardo Amaral and myself are in agreement concerning who is the "Father of Brazil", as a nation(!) That we disagree on his 'actions', and the Good and Evil thereof, is for "the people" of Brazil to decide(*?*) Indeed, I am but a Remnant of what might have been for my people(.)

wow, that is cool that you know some people playing there, joao...i was so blown away by what i saw...coco is like some incredible living snapshot of the culture of how slaves made music and dance in brazil that goes back several hundred years...for an american, it is a phenominal look at the culture that was banned from the slaves brought from africa, in north america...its like a missing link, extremly educational...an american has to ask themselves, what was really going on behind closed doors with the culture of the people brought over as slaves...how did they really expres themsevles...much is lost...but, look at some old films of the geechie culture in an island off of south carolina...it almost looks like some coco...

anyone who thinks that isnt relevant to americans (are you listening blanchette?) has no idea of the depth and value of afro diasporic culture

joao, being in recife is a huge insight into the manifestacaos that are going on now...since ive been caught in a couple of them in differant cities trying to do my business, im trying to figure them out, and the recife papers, the jornal do comercial and diario , have exceptional reporting since they are differant

what they have said is, there are some people who came up from sao paulo, to co ordinate with student/treacher, syndicate and leftist movements already there,

it seems, these things have large peaceful demonstrations first, with the movement to eliminate bus fares, and syndicate people as a lot of the base with students, and then , you have these "black bloc" people, not anything to do with afro black, but the people who dress in black and are going to want to clash with the police and break stuff

they can be joined by just anybody who likes to break stuff also

im trying to understand it all and dont want to be quick to judge, for sure depending on who you talk to , you will get a differant perspective

lots of regular people in recife complained about it and another report showed lots of people marching and he was praising it

i did see on reports that the violent people, the black bloc, was a few people and indulged in some wanton violence for nothing and it looked bad...most of these people seem to be white students

very educational to see this and get caught by it out on the street in several differant cities in brazil now...im still trying to figure it out

and the papers here are saying, one of things for the inflation , that really is a big factor driving this, is, foreign investment is fleeing brazil, which is too bad...that coupled with other factors is making for a lot of economic confusion that is translating into public confusion...i dont mean to sound like i just found the cause of all this, you know all this also, im just getting it sunk in by informing myself in a couple of places...

Maybe it was other anarchists (MFNHW's) that did them in but the effect was the same as will be seen in our beloved land of plenty. The American Indians coming back on occasion to Ioway just to fish, although they made the new local yokals a bit nervous, were not part of this kind of bloco although you could say they were not so different from the original MST folks.

its actualy from germany, simps,

and,i think however it is manifesting here in brazil now has to be judged on what is happening here

loyld , since you mentioned the paid agitators, as you did , joao, and i saw reports earliar of syndicates paying people to participate , here is a local recife report i saw just yesterday

a person the police busted for asaulting someone, were trying to interogate the sustpect about some other asaults that happened a day or two earliar...the suspect testified that he couldnt have done them because he was participating in the manifestacaos...and that he was paid 150 to vandalise property, which i saw blatent reports about

what wasnt clarified is who paid him

i am going to try to research that , joao, what was your understanding of who is paying the people to commit violence in sao paulo or rio? for sure the syndicate leaders paying people is obvious where the payment is coming from, but, who is paying for the vandalism? the police in rio sent infiltrators to see what was happening but they werent inciting violence

but, for sure, this kind of violence is ruining the honest protest that does deserve to be going on...

as this thing evolves, im more and more wanting to suspend judgement and try to actualy figure out what is going on...most everyone outside of what is going on claims to know what is going on, but, im ready to try to find out the truth at this point

it seems there is this cross between the caras pintatos movemtent and this volitable moment just before the dictatorshop staged the coup in 64 and the next act in 68...of course with large differances...yet, there seems to be parrallels to both those movemtents of the past...in some way, what is unfolding may give me insights to what happened in the 60's, what were the right things , what were the wrong things, what were the mistakes on both sides...when was the point that happened that crossed over the line for both sides

in some ways,i have to agree with gilberto gil , in the sence that , there is going to be a copa and there will be protests, they just both will co exist, i just hope that people dont start getting killed

one side note, i saw a report on mtv of a reporter hanging with the protesters in natal during the conferdacaos, and, from various differant factions they said they are protesting lack of security from violence of assaults...this is something that isnt flushed out , and its something i could get out and protest for...make the streets safer because the violence is a very real and urgent thing

The classe B who became poorer is pissed off as well. As for your question: "Who pays for the goons?". My answer is the "law abiding and silent working class protesters"! You know why?

here is proof that sindicatoes paid money to get people to protest

i saw a report in 9/11. of mst paying protesters to sit out in front of the american consulate

every evidnece i am reading indicates that the black bloc members did pay some thugs in recife to go out and destroy property

i read the guy that interupeted the carnival judging in sao paulo paid demonstrators to protest in sao paulo

im afraid revolution and leftest ideologies are just business as usual like everywhere else

i just read a very detailed interview with a black blocer in recife..they are pampered upper middle class to elite students who do think violence is valid to use, they follow anarchism, which is extremly suppect and follow leftest ideologies that are against capatalism totaly, in other word nothing else will do except tear the system down

i like capatalism and hate hyper predatory cororacracy capatalism, i want capatalism with a concience and social programs...these people who want to just tear it all down and implement systems that are proved to be failures, i cant get with them at all...and if they think breaking a banks cash machines is some kind of solution while they are just hurting the honest worker who just wants to get some money out of a cash machine to get through the day, they are seriously out of touch with reality

joao, ill check your article out soon

proof syndicos are paying people to protest. mst paid people to protest in 9/11, all evidence is leading to the fact the black bloc paid people to cause vandalism in recife, lets face it, far left ideological politics is business as usual

a post didnt come up i sent i have to start over

joao, i dont have a position yet on doctors from cuba in brazil...there are a couple of sides to it, if doctors are needed in rural areas, then meaybe it is nescasary

but, the thing about doctors in socialised medicine and sus programs like we have in brazil is, it gets down to when you go to be examined by a doctor, someone who is going to look at your body and tell you what you should do, having the power of choice is a very profound right that should never get lost...being able to choose who examines you instead of being bearocraticly ordered who is going to examine you is something that is frightening as well as what kind of socialist system is going to create the kind of conditions we see some hospitals in, people all in the hallways and stuff...that could be us in a few years

as far as some elements in brazilian congress following ideologies, it was demonstrated quite vividly when one after another congressman came to testify to let batisti stay in brazil, a communist convicted murderer from italy...marxist ideological alignments are alive and well in brazil

i read a deep article on black blocers in recife, they are middle class to elite pampered students who think violence is justified, they are following anarchy philosophy and hate all capatalism...

I don't mind having foreign doctors (or any other technically qualified professionals) to fill in the shortage whether be in rural or urban areas of Brasil, ASP. You know as well I do that your country did ( and still)benefit from "importing" such qualified labor. However, I must point out that your govt nor ours (so far) has intervened in the "hiring" process by private (or public) entities. There has been no "ideological" issues involved and all of a sudden, the rulers here decided to hire Cuban slave labor. smilies/angry.gif Unacceptable to the members of peasant class such as myself.smilies/cry.gif

Imperialist Agendas & "Red Line" Agendas
written by Lloyd Cata, August 31, 2013
Joao, how many posts has Brazzil published devoted to the people who clear the streets of garbage, or those who 'harvest' that garbage, as only the unsanitary conditions distinguish them from the [peasant] farm workers(?) Surely, they are below the visibilty of the lofty Class-A society, but for peasants such as ourselves we must see them clearly, because "one slip" and that's where our most lofty 'citizens' will throw us, no(?) Yes, out with the trash(!...)

Recognition of the Truth is the first step to "Banish Ignorance", for the attainment of the Good cannot be accomplished without overcoming the Evil(...!) Perhaps this is the thought that occupies the mind of "The Esteemed Harvard-educated Constitutional Scholar" in the White House(?) B-b-but we must not forget 'who' brought the "Red Line Agenda" to Washington, or that the red line extends to Teheran(!!!) Sadly, all else is Imperialism(...!)

Those Cuban doctors do not flinch from the destitution of the poor, as does those who are -recently- removed from such situation. After doctors, maybe teachers will follow(poor Asp!) How could this be that giving such people health and education should be a problem ...(?) Surely his "Capitalist Comrades" will provide these things; they are rich ...(!)

Know that I am wary of "Red Lines", because they are usually a cover for Imperialist Agendas, and the 'new' French Imperialism in Africa has not gone unnoticed...(*)

Thanks for letting us all know you are doing fine in Luanda. Great comments, Lloyd.Especially about the the thin "Red Line" & the well planned extension of this line to Tehran. It makes sense. A pity that our distinguished fellow bloggers Ederson and his sidekick Mr.Limpopo are no longer participating in this blog, as they know much more about that part of the world than I do.

As I have stated before, I have no objection to letting foreigners come into Brasil provided they are adequately qualified. What bothers me is about the Cubans is a) Choice based on ideological reasons.b) The fact that their salaries are being "managed" by the Cuban govt.I consider it equal to "bond laboring".

Glad to know Damascus is spared (at least for the time being) from the wrath of the "Western Powers".smilies/wink.gifsmilies/cheesy.gifsmilies/grin.gif

Let's see now, telegraph your intended actions, use the talking heads in the media to muddle and twirl. What's that you say? Assad is not stupid and he'll try to move his major airpower hard assets into Iran to protect them thinking no one would ever strike there? In the mean time the citizens get a bit of a break, temporary reprieve from several elements of the extermination campaign. Is there or is there not going to be at least a smidgen of this due to the hunkering down the blustering invokes? By all means yeassss, move them, concentrate them in an area less prone to civilian collateral damage by "surgical" strikes where they can be taken off the plate and if a few "errant" strikes cause a significant setback in Iran's nuclear program, ohh geez, how the heck did that happen?

still in savlador...sorry you had to freeze your buns off while im at poolside looking at fine big booty...got caught in the pagao, right in the middle...the reports said that people couldnt get money from the cash machines and that it really hurt the average person...mmmmm what hapens when the "black block" breaks the cash machines in the banks? who gets hurt , really? im getting skeptacle of the "black block" and how they are being romantisized in some of the media as "the stars of the show"

but, some of the protest is certainly valid...but gets lost in the shuffle of passo livre
Indentured Servitude, Slave Labor, and Ideological Error
written by Lloyd Cata, September 01, 2013
Joao, I really appreciated your post http://goo.gl/YacIiy, on the 'attitude' of the Brazilian medical community. Very informative, and I intend to follow that thread...(?)

Since it is so difficult to find my former comments in Brazzil archives, I repeat; "The sick or injured person does not care about the "ideology" of the doctor who makes him well(!!!) The parents do not care about the "ideology" of the teacher who teaches their children to read and count(???) If you wish to 'heal' according to ideology you will find yourself in the same place as the US; great "ideological medicine"($$$), and little left for the people(ObamaCare)[.]

So that we don't mistake ignorance for illiteracy; http://goo.gl/jho3d maybe Brazil should consider hiring US medical personnel, because obviously their 'debts' to get that MD-degree has now subjected them to a period of "indentured servitude" to various 'lenders' before they become employable(much less profitable to the people). Yet, you would get "inexperienced doctors" for which Brazil would be paying their enormous debts(?) Perhaps they will bring their "capitalist ideology" also, in which case you wind up exactly where you are; "rich capitalist doctors" who care less for those of lesser means(.) An "ideological error" of that magnitude would certainly threaten not only your health but your democracy(...?)

B-b-but there is much to be considered, because most of that 'fine booty' that Asp is sooo fond of, probably didn't have medical care either(...!) Which says much for "ancient/homeopathic" remedies(...) After all, much of that 'illness' came from Ricardo Amaral's ancestry, huh? Sadly, it is still coming from that direction, ...in the form of ignorance(*)

No matter who gets 'paid', there is a price for everything. The question is what you get for the money(?) For Brazil, as you will find in my earlier statements, health and education is cheaper to import than to produce, but if you follow the bankrupt ideology of imperialists then you will certainly wind up where you were; "bankrupt, sick, and illiterate"...(?) Which is exactly when the "generalissimos" will convince you they can do better(!...)

"An education is only as good as the Truth of the matter" - http://goo.gl/jho3d. There was once a time that the US Peace Corps was a noble institution that 'cared' for the people around the world(?) We know what happened once the "imperialist ideology" of the CIA infected that institution; http://goo.gl/rUcQ4 (*!*) Don't you find Mr. Cretz to be an "interesting individual"? But certainly, Amb. John Negroponte is more to the liking of despots and dictators. "Regime Change" is in his DNA smilies/shocked.gifsmilies/angry.gifsmilies/shocked.gif

http://www.therealcuba.com/Page10.htm

you need to wake up, cata...the sick and injured should care about the quality of medical care that comes from an ideology that trumpets to the heavens how incredible its health care is but in reality is horrible for poor and black people in cuba

wake the fuk up...you didnt beleive the syndicates could pay people, i brought in the truth...they did...the "black bloc" paid people to cause vandilism...mst paid people to protest at the american consulate in 9/11

people who go around touting socialised medicine , better make sure the poor people receiving it arnt suffering...poor people deserve quality medical treatment also

and what good is an education if it is marxist? that is just a bulls**t education

you better quit worrying about the fine booty im seeing that you arnt and educate yourself about the truth of far leftest red flaggers these days...they are open for business and have their own beaurocracy that just suks...they sure fooled your @ss

"A relative of a Cuban slave doctor, who was sent by the Castro regime to work in Angola, have sent me copy of a recent e-mail he received where the doctor explains how the Castro brothers exploit those who are forced to abandon their families and go work in foreign countries.
The name of the doctor has been omitted for obvious reasons. Here is a translation of what he said:
"Let me explain how the contract works. The Angolan government pays Cuba US$10,000 monthly for each doctor, but from that total, the Cuban government pays Angola's Ministry of Health US$6,000 per month to guarantee our housing and transportation. We have to pay for our own food. Of the US$4,000 left we only receive US$600, but 30% of the $600 is paid to an account in Cuba. I spend about US$150 buying food that I have to cook myself and if you check the phone bill, it cost around US$40 to call Cuba. As you can see, it is not easy."
Note - According to the relatives, the 30% that is paid in Cuba is in CUC Convertible Cuban Pesos that are worthless outside of Cuba.
Based on this breakdown, Cuba is receiving US$4,000 net after expenses for each doctor. The Cuban government pays US$420 ($600 less 30%) to the doctor and 180 CUC, go to an account in Cuba.
And the difference, approximately US$3,400, goes to the pocket of Castro & Castro Slave Traders Unlimited.
Some exiled doctors that I've talked to believe that the figure that the Cuban government pays for the "housing and transportation" seems high and is probably what the government told the doctor.
If that's the case, the difference that goes to the Castro brothers pockets could be even higher.
Multiply that by the thousands of Cuban doctors who are currently working in foreign countries and you can understand why Forbes lists Fidel Castro as one of the world's richest dictators.
Next time you hear one of those foreign ignorant talking about the "generosity" of Cuba's leaders in "sharing" thousands of Cuban doctors to help the poor and the needy around the world, show them this letter."

this is what joao is talking about , Cata...wake up !!
So Sad....
written by Lloyd Cata, September 02, 2013
The 'syndicates' and the 'black bloc' are going to destroy Brazil(!) What the hell happened to the FARC and the 'mouse'(?)

Sorry snake, but methinks Brazil is more interested in what Obama will do to 'explain' why he is snooping on Dilma's phone calls...(?) I'm sure he has every reason now that the Cuban doctors are arriving, huh?

However, anything to fragment Brazilieros will be welcome news in Washington. How else are we to sell all those surplus guns from Iraq/Afghanistan? Don't you want to be "the power" in South America?

Your 'proof' is like the proof of Assad's Sarin attack, provided by spies and Zionists. Who benefits from Assad attacking his own people when he could have used 'his' WMD on the rebel commanders(...?) See, it is the 'proof' of Vietnam, the 'proof' of Iraqi WMD, the 'proof' given to ignorant people who depend on MSM to tell them what to think. Who are these syndicates that hire the 'black bloc' to destabilize Brazil? Is Raul Castro or Putin paying them? Where is this proof that is sensationalized in the media, that pretends now to oppose the generals that brought them fortunes?

"Destabilization" is the game, "by any means necessary", and sadly for the low-life snakes in the world 'the people' all over the world can see who is the real enemy. Playing the "race card" is too late, snake(!) You will not 'divide' Brazil by race...(!) The demonstrations are in every region of the nation. Making this a "black bloc" racist agenda has now exposed the belly of the snake, and I would be very surprised if your racist theories are any more welcome than your capitalist theories which have provided a rich history of tyranny and death to the rest of the world. Be careful out there, ...and keep your passport handy, because somehow I suspect your real purpose in Brazil, and in this forum is not in the interest of your 'hosts'...(!)
The Economics of Slave Labor
written by Lloyd Cata, September 02, 2013
That's quite a detailed breakdown of the economic conditions of Cuban doctors working around the world. I can understand why they don't go back to Cuba smilies/cheesy.gif

Yet, I am more interested in why Angola delivers better medicine to its people than how long those doctors are willikng to work for 'slave wages'. Does Fidel kill their family if they 'defect' to the West? Some do, you know? Perhaps YouTube will provide you with the 'slave conditions' of US interns, but you've probably seen enough episodes of Grey's Anatomy to figure it out, ...the 72-hour shifts, the low pay, the debts that put them on public transportation.

Forget just doctors,...do you realize that millions of Americans are trying to get a "living wage" because the gangsters on Wall Street have ripped off the entire US population, less the greediest 2%? Don't you want to explain to your friends that the economic pain must be "exported" to make the US people appear to be rich? But the biggest swindle is yet to come. Remember that $4T that the US Chairman(no not that one) Bernanke printed? Well, let's just say a lot of $20 bills will be coming your way, huh? What do you know about that, huh? Those leaky cabanas are just cover for a snake with your economic skills. Too bad there are no Cuban doctors who can afford them, and worse that you cannot rent them to the US doctors that Mr. Obama is sure to send to recompense Dilma for the insult to her, and all Brazilieros privacy. Watch the "special stethescopes" because you never know what they are really listening to...(?)

Do all that intentionally, reboot, then open the sister site directly, hit the home page button to get to the recent articles, post something, close the browser, come back to this site, give someone a "+" for their comment (don't ever ever give anyone a "-", it's seriously frowned upon in addition to being impolite), close everything out, come back in a about a day or two and now you can probably post again if your internet service isn't as crappy as mine.

Question for Eddy: Is the Gazprom pipeline from Uzbekistan and Iran that runs through northern Iraq and Syria feeding the euro dependency port in the mediterranean still functioning? LC is not entirely off the wall, it is an imperialist agenda but not Eua's. Dear Assad, just park your assets on top of or within 3 meters of it, declare a "new Syria" zone and no one will reach out and touch you until the end of your days.

Ah aint going to let my friends' eyesight in decline.smilies/angry.gif What are friends for, Simp? So you better start using eye drops (colirio).Sistane 3 times a day and Timolol (.5%) twice a day. Ah aint too sure if they are prescription meds in the good ole U.S. of A.

Let us not mess with what is not ours to mess with. Reconstitute a no fly zone over northern Iraq and another over Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia. Cut off Gazprom and let the chips fall where they may. All sides will come together in unanimity.


Great comment, Simp. It makes sense (almost). Has to be ratified by Eddie, though. Sincerely hope the things settle down. I believe more in diplomacy.

oopps

Ya ya Dr Silva, if you had asked more questions before throwing prescriptions at it you might have learned that it was "Inner" eyesight that was in decline.

The "calculus" I laid out was intentionally set to say nobody is anybody's friend. It affords the US to "intervene" without any direct attack and collateral damage therefrom by cutting off the inbound munitions and major equipment. It will piss the heck out of the EyeRainians, Russians (who had 4.3 billion in sales to Assad last year) and the Ur-a-peeings that won't / can't get it to gether and get involved in any serious way because of the fear of the pipeline closure affects. All these imperialists won't have a choice but to come together and strive to make a real working solution. It will take time but until the pain is applied . . .
Mr. Simpleton and The Argentine Solution

(very soothing formulation for those eye-sores from watching MSM nonsense)

Very insightful, Mr. Simpleton, recognizing the blinding mind-numbing propaganda that has no basis in what can be done and what will be done. I also salute the fact that you understand that neither has any relationship with what 'should-be-done'. Looking forward to your 'opinion' as worthy comment by those who understand the difference of opinion results from understanding the differences of "possibilities"(?) Nothing is impossible, ...we simply live in a world run by "impossible people", who can not imagine the possibilities for "others" other than themselves.

[It will take time but until the pain is applied...] - Simpleton

Quite right, ...and looking through history that 'pain' involves Blood&Treasure(!) Argentina has recently rejoined the monetary structure of the "Empire" after decades of pariah status(Chevron), but the terms are not what they were(?) The deal is one of possibilities and not of dictates, where the "Consequences of Success" are not hostage to the "Profits of Chaos"(!) Argentina has payed the price, and the pain, to be free of [_________], which doesn't mean they are not open for business, with 'new' possibilities.
And . . . .

Is this the proverbial "pregnant" pause? Nobody is really saying anything and nothing is happening in any observable way (two months worth??). Obama should have issued an executive order requiring all congressmen and senators to sit through the classified briefings with the result of who attended and who did not being made public. What they would and could be shown, none of us nor the ruskies nor any other party(icipants) will ever see but that's where and how I trust those elected to get their real story from and vote for my best interests accordingly. Just because it's "authorized" by those in the know (even if contrary to the uninformed populace's opinion) doesn't mean it has to be "executed". Will the "gimmes" now being signaled from Assad and company really suffice? Will the UN (UNactionable) report and follow-on tribunals really do anything (like they've never been known to be effectual at anywho)?

Great comments, Simp.

Elected officials voting for the best interests of those who elected them? It should be the case not only in your country but here too. It is interesting that one of the very few states in Brasil where the voters demand more action from their elected and selected officials is ours. Probably because of the higher literacy rate.smilies/wink.gifsmilies/cheesy.gifsmilies/grin.gif

Regardless, the ordinary Yanks did a great job by sending their "NO" message to their elected officials and the POTUS, without the "intellectuals" like Jane Fonda, Michael Moore, etc; leading the charge.smilies/wink.gifsmilies/cheesy.gif
Naysayers
written by Simpleton, September 12, 2013
Yep, exactly right Joao, the illiterate naysayers chimed in and were counted while the rest just sat around expecting the current donkeys and ponies to do their damn job after their holidays and eventually say Yay. Left open is the LC list of "possibilities" that some will do "what should be done". Maybe after the next election hey?
