Two monuments of the Brazilian capital BrasÀlia, the JK Memorial JK and the Museum of the Indian, were tagged with protests against the visit this weekend of the United States President.
"Fora Bush Assassino" (Out, Murderer Bush) and "Yankees go home" (in English) were some of the messages written by the protesting taggers. Security at the JK Memorial tried to prevent photographers from taking pictures of the graffiti, which have already been erased.
The US President, George W. Bush, arrives today in Argentina to take part in the 4th Americas Summit, that starts Friday, October 4, in Mar Del Plata. Other 33 countries will participate in the encounter, including Brazil, represented by President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva.
The meeting will deal with such themes as the creation of jobs as a way to fight poverty, workers’ education and the invigoration of democracy.
On Saturday, October 5, Bush will fly to Brasília, where he will stay through Sunday. His visit to Brazil should unleash protests all over the country.
In Brasília, the Central íšnica dos Trabalhadores (Unified Workers Federation, CUT) has been handing out flyers on the streets to summon the population for a demonstration against the American President.
