Today we put our yellow and green shirts and joined people in the streets in the protests to claim for a better Brazil. Although many claims for the impeachment of our actual president Dilma Roussef, which political specialists consider unlikely to happen, my personal reasons to join the crowd in Copacabana seafront were to protest against corruption, impunity, but most of all to teach my little son that when we see something wrong happening we can’t silence ourselves. Although people in the crowds claimed for different reasons they all have in common the same dissatisfaction with Brazil situation.
It is well-known that Brazil lives a serious economical, political and social crisis. After the reelection of President Dilma Roussef, last October, brazilian people are divided in two groups, the ones that still supports the government and the ones that didn’t vote for her, who are protesting today for a better Brazil.
We didn’t stay much, my son doesn’t like crowds, but we stayed enough time for him to see with his own eyes what we people can do to protest against a bad administration government, when you live in a democratic country. Brazilians kept in silent for years, but now things are changing. I’m not going to deepen the political discussion, this blog is not for that and I’m not an expert in brazilian politics, I’m just sharing my personal thoughts and feelings as a brazilian.
We don’t know what is going to happen next. Just hope things start to change and that Brazil can recover soon from the serious crisis we’re living.
