Brazil wants true justice for Lula!

category international | elections / politics | opinion/analysis author Saturday January 13, 2018 00:27author by João Mac Unaima - brazilian citizenship Report this post to the editors

Lula was the best president of Brazilian republic, since Getúlio Vargas!

Lula's trial must be annulled, Sergio Moro must be removed from the magistracy, dangerous element he is, and Wilson Center’s staff must recycle their behavior patterns! Humanity is tired of this mud! We all know that much more and much better is possible!

Brazil wants true justice for Lula!

Lula was the best president of Brazilian republic, since Getúlio Vargas!

His two terms brought the greatest wave of prosperity of Brazilian history. Never had so many people reached university, so many cars had never been sold, so many popular houses had never been built, and so many humble people had never been seen in airports.

We never breathe so much freedom, so much democracy, so much respect and so much social peace. Never had so many rights been secured, enlarged, and strengthened.

During the period the country assumed an important role in the international scenario, with independence and respect for international law. It shone in Mercosur and strengthened it, shone in the BRICS and strengthened it, and contributed decisively to the construction of a more peaceful, freer world, more oriented to the progress of all.

The country dared to innovate a lot in economics and made perhaps the only record of full employment throughout its history.

All this deeply troubled old internal and external interests. Who's in charge in Brazil, now? If you want the truth, look at the Union budget: 52% of 2018’s budget is intended for national and international bankers, rentiers and speculators. The resources for the vicious dragon of public debt were increased by 37%, for this new exercise.

Labor rights have been summarily suppressed, the best and most significant national companies, razed, and the government works to leave the population without retirement, although forced to contribute to social security until death.

The judge who convicted Lula in the first instance leaked information from the case by Rede Globo de Televisão, (Globe Television Network) demonizing the figure of the former president, deliberately, in the attempt to launch public opinion against Lula, which would already be enough to nullify the process in any serious country , and cause punishment for the aforementioned magistrate. Meanwhile, worse, such information was lies ripped from proven criminals, imprisoned for long periods, and tempted to give in to lessen their pain.

But there is much more: the judge could not have tried Lula, since the case, as he himself recorded in writing, had nothing to do with Petrobras. The list of irregularities committed by Sérgio Moro in this case against Lula is great, but none of this has been considered relevant until now, and the president of the court that will judge Lula on January 24, 2018, aptly praised the sentence even before to read it and accelerated outrageously the proceedings, trampling the rules and trampling other processes, with the obvious purpose of proceeding in time to disrupt Lula's participation in this year's presidential election, for which Lula is a the great favorite.

Idle to say that there is strictly no evidence against Lula, but Moro, duly inspired and stimulated by Wilson Center, declares that there is no need.

And this is not an accusation against the United States of America, but it is certainly against some sectors of the economy and of the society of America and of the world, that insist on believing that the path to opulence is disgrace, is the misery of others.

They did very badly in Syria, Turkey, Iran, but here in Brazil, our dear and poor Dilma Roussef, did not understand or could not control the progress of the coup in march, with young people of the "opposition" in the streets, publicly declaring they were being financed in their terrorist actions by oil companies of somber fame.

It is very important that you, a citizen of the United States, tighten your screws, so that this kind of international banditry, always so practiced by empires and aspirants, is controlled or diminished in some way. Our history of the 20th and 21st centuries, has more space for these pirates than would be acceptable or recommendable.

Lula's trial must be annulled, Sergio Moro must be removed from the magistracy, dangerous element he is, and Wilson Center’s staff must recycle their behavior patterns! Humanity is tired of this mud! We all know that much more and much better is possible!
