Sorry for the inconvenience, we’re changing the country! #ChangeBrazil
By now you must have heard about what’s happening in Brazil. If you follow me here, you know I’m not really the kind of person who posts these things, but i’d like to share this message with as many people as I can.
Explaining the reasons for those protests shortly: Brazil has been living a sad political reality. Tons and tons of money are stollen by the government every year. There’re no quality public education, public health care system or public transportation. You want it nice, you gotta pay tons for it. But then, apparently there’s just not enough money to make all those things work, but there’s money to build 345678 soccer stadiums for the world cup. anyways.
People got tired. Millions of people took the streets of all the main cities in this country. Peacefully, people told their government to start doing things right. Government replied with military police troops shooting, and throwing gas bombs against the crowd. Its the ultimate disrespect against our democracy.
Those are the pictures i find either the most beautiful or sad taken so far. On the old lady sign it reads “I’m 82, I’m not here to play, I came to manifest”.
Please, we need to be heard.
there is a loneliness in this world so great
that you can see it in the slow movement of
the hands of a clock.
people so tired
either by love or no love.
people just are not good to each other
one on one.
the rich are not good to the rich
the poor are not good to the poor.
we are afraid.
our educational system tells us
that we can all be
it hasn’t told us
about the gutters
or the suicides.
or the terror of one person
aching in one place
watering a plant.
