For the record, isn't Brazil one of the most multi-ethnic/culture, nations on the planet? And this is the nation Hillary Clinton wishes America would emulate?

when you're an occultist witch who desires, control, blood, sacrifice in the name of power why not emulate a country that provides just that to their leaders by law.

They want to emulate china as well.

I am Brazilian as well and I can understand perfectly what Canslli is saying.

The Brazilian people is not the one to go out in the streets to riot. We usually label any protest as a bunch of wanna be rebels. We are usually more concerned about how the traffic will be affected than concerned about the reasons people are out protesting.

Today there was a blood bath in Rio de Janeiro. The police started to use non-lethal bombs against everyone - including international journalists. Traffic cameras around the protest were magically turned off and a radio was asked to stop it's transmission.

Something HUGE changed here and I sure hope things will change for better.

I'm from São Paulo and tomorrow I will be in the protest Canslli was talking about. It is supposed to be peaceful but the odds are there will be confrontation. I just hope the local and international media don't turn a blind eye to us.

Glad to hear that you're going MichelT. Many of my friends are going too. I hope nothing bad happens. Stay safe.


Parabéns ai cara, por ir ao protesto. Se eu tivesse em São Paulo, eu iria também. Eu estava em Campinas hoje e meu primo, universitário, falou que muita gente vai pra rua lá também, na quinta. E aqui na minha cidade também. Vamos ver se tudo isso vai surtir algum efeito. Espero que sim.

Boa sorte amanhã.

It's as multi-ethnic as the US, just in different proportions. When you think of American ethnic background after the last couple hundred years of Slavery and immigration, you might think in the following order: English, Scottish/Irish, Mexican, German, Italian, Sub-Saharan African, French and Cajun, Polish, Chinese...listing off a few more Slavic nations, perhaps Greek, a few Middle Eastern nations, other Hispanic culturesScandinavians, Japanese, Koreans, Indians and Pakistanis, Iranians, Armenians, Ashkenazi Jews/Yiddish-speakers, trailing off in some such order til you get to Native American tribes (though more people may have native ancestry than those who actually claim it...but I'm talking perception).

In Brazil, the same constituent ethnicities are more or less present, but their various levels of prominence are in different order: Portuguese, Sub-Saharan African, Native tribal groups, Germans, Italians, Japanese, Ukrainians, Polish, Lebanese, and Dutch round out their top of course trails off into Turks, other Slavs, other Arabs, other Western Europeans, Chinese, Indians, Greeks and even English and Americans.

So, yeah...that's that. What does that have to do with this again?

Just to update again, a live stream from the protest in São Paulo:

Just so you know, they are passing through this avenue for more than an hour now, so it is a lot of people.

Today was a historic day here in Brazil. Protests happened in many cities around the country and around 300.000 people participated.

I'll leave here a link with pictures showing really well what happened today here. There are beautiful scenes of entire avenues taken by the peaceful protesters and horrible pictures of the few vandals that spoiled the night.

Here's the link:

Thank you for the support guys.

We managed to achieve our first victory: the bus fares were reduced. This is not a real deal since the reduction will be subsidized by the government, in other words, we're still paying for it. On the other side, the President announced she will be meeting with local leaders to discuss a national plan for transportation and a few other issues.

The big problem now is that the protests are becoming too vague. Before, we were going to the streets to demand the reduction in bus fares - a clear objective. Now, there is a bunch of demands and, worse, many right wing radicals are trying to take over the protests. Last Thursday, they were burning and breaking some political parties flags. They say there is no space for political parties in this manifestation - which i agree, there should be no specific party here but you can't prohibit it, it's a violation of their right to have an opinion - and are being quite violent with those who disrespect that.

So basically, the big challenge now is to not let the protesters fight against each other, otherwise we're doomed.

whatzshaken: thank you! Gladly, everything was peaceful on monday and tuesday. Some minor groups trying to create problems but everything went out ok.

Canslli: Thanks man! Keep on fighting!


Valeu cara! Isso tá sendo incrível! É um momento histórico! Apesar dos problemas, me enche de orgulho! Força ai!
