“Verás que um filho teu não foge a luta.”
- Hino Nacional Brasileiro
Every revolution begins with a spark.
What’s happening in Brazil? Well, we’re fighting for our rights. Our country has one of the worst education/transportation/health care public system in the world, and we pay extremely expensive taxes for shitty services! The government sent police officers to stop PACIFIC MANIFESTATIONS, there were a lot of people hurt, and the media shows us as VANDALS! We’re not vandals, we are citizens fighting for what’s ours. The WORLD CUP is happening here next year, and the gorvenment spent billions of reais on it, while people live in misery! We fight for a better country, we fight for what we believe in. #VEMPRARUA !
Please sign this petition concerning police brutality and government corruption in Brazil. The mass media is not reporting on any of this, today on June 16th radio stations’ signals were cut and replaced with the narration of soccer games simply because they were reporting on police brutality who locked protesters inside a park with children and women inside, gassed them and shot rubber bullets.
The Brazilian media is being censured. Websites that express the true situation by people who have been victims of police brutality are being taken down. The government is refusing to acknowledge any of this, and their president has not even made a statement about the situation.
Please don’t turn your back on these people. Don’t not care because they aren’t your people and its another country. This is HUMAN RIGHTS we are talking about. It is important; people need to stand up and take notice. If a video of Miley Cyrus twerking can get over 1,000 notes then I know we can get this to 1,000 & beyond. As human beings, brothers & sisters of the human race, we have an obligation to help others who are in distress. So sign the petition everyone, bring attention to the Brazilian government and help change Brazil.
