It's coup time, baby! [View all]

It's coup time, baby.
Today is the day when the fallacious Brazilian democray shows its true rotten face, disguising the deposition of president Dilma Rousseff with Republican colors.
Today is party day for the Brazilian oligarchy and its poor, alienated, subservient footmen.
Today is the day when the bourgeois state defends its true commanders.
Today is a day for the thinking minds of Brazil to come to their senses and realize, once for all, that if we do not do it by force, the capital holders will not share space - nor abdicate of their secular privileges.
Today is a sad day, but also a day for pondering to those who got lost among the illusions of popular achievements of the last decade.
Dilma is gone. And with her, many hopes and dreams - including those of her constructive critics.
May we learn this lesson - a hard lesson, we must admit -, in the utopic fight for a society without classes.
