Mass protests in 200 of Brazil's cities

Recommended Posts

Eldorado

"Tens of thousands of protesters gathered in cities across Brazil on Wednesday to rally against education spending freezes in the biggest demonstrations yet against President Jair Bolsonaro, who called marchers “useful idiots and imbeciles.”"

"The marches in over 200 cities, according to a count by the Globo TV network, mark the first national protests against the administration of the far-right Bolsonaro, whose poll numbers are falling as he struggles with a weak economy, rising unemployment, an unruly coalition in Congress and infighting within his cabinet.

"Speaking in Dallas, Texas, where he travelled to attend a gala dinner, Bolsonaro denied his government had cut education budgets and cast the protests as a partisan spectacle."

Ya, he spoke in Dallas because he was rebuffed by New York City where he was supposed to be awarded Person of the Year by a Brazilian Chamber of Commerce. Bolsonaro is a terse, gruff person and is not well liked by leftists.  He and his wife are also being scrutinized in a graft scandal. Keep your eye on him. Not your usual SA leader.

Brazil figured out the hard way that they can't afford socialism. Like Venezuela they voted it in. It's easy to get in, difficult to get out.

Well let's not go crazy, aztek LOL.  What makes leftists very happy is spending other people's money, not conserving it
