Violence does not

Brazilian protests – June 2013

  1. 1. Brazilian Protests – June 2013 Teacher: Luciana Viter
  2. 2. 20 cents has sparked a revolution
  3. 3. http://www.redpepper.org.uk/brazil-the-giant-has-awoken/ Brazil is in revolt. What started as a protest about a R$0.20 rise in bus fares has turned into a mass nationwide movement .
  4. 4. Over a million people took the streets
  5. 5. http://www.redpepper.org.uk/brazil-the-giant-has-awoken/ In a country often seen as politically passive, a silent majority was finding its voice. Until now they discussed these problems individually with resignation, saying ‘that’s just the way Brazil is’. Now they are demanding change.
  6. 6. The giant has awoken!
  7. 7. http://www.redpepper.org.uk/brazil-the-giant-has-awoken/ The participants were predominantly young, but the movement resonates far beyond them. Events are moving fast with protests growing and spreading to new cities each day, and it is far from clear when or how it will end.
  8. 8. But it’s not just about 20 cents
  9. 9. "“Their bright banners bore diverse demands” says Julia Carneiro from BBC Brasil ”but all reflected a fatigue with what people here get from the state. I repeatedly heard the word “tired”: protesters told me they were tired of corruption, of nepotism, of high taxes paid for poor public services." http://www.theepochtimes.com/n3/119921-brazilian-protesters-its-not- about-20-cents/
  10. 10. Some reasons why Brazil is protesting
  11. 11. ... besides Public Transportation
  12. 12. Against Corruption
  13. 13. Against the Costs of the World Cup
  14. 14. "We are demanding more respect to the population," Vinicius de Assis, 21, a protester in Rio told the Associated Press. "They are building these overpriced stadiums and are not worrying about the situation of their own people." http://www.theepochtimes.com/n3/119921-brazilian-protesters-its-not- about-20-cents/
  15. 15. For Better Public Health Care
  16. 16. For Better Public Education
  17. 17. “The people have woken up. The bus fare hike was just the moment of awakening. Now we are fighting for better health care, security and education. We are tired man, this is the time to fight. Enough injustice,” said one protester draped in a Brazilian flag, Leandro Pergula.” http://www.euronews.com/2013/06/20/more-protests-planned-in-brazil- despite-fare-price-u-turns/
