Brasilia-. Former President Luis Inacio Lula da Silva confirmed that President Jair Bolsonaro has destroyed Brazil, in an interview with the Italian newspaper La Repubblica and republished here today on portals and digital platforms.
When asked about the possibility of a coup, the Labor founder downplayed the risks and warned that anything could happen in the South American giant.
There was indeed a coup d’état in April 2016, when the legitimate president, Dilma Rousseff, was overthrown with an impeachment (impeachment) that had no basis or evidence. Lola stressed, but if I have to answer your question, I don’t think so.
Perhaps those who are currently leading the country will find it difficult to leave power, and will oppose it, he said, but in this case it will be the vast majority of Brazilians, 77 percent, who oppose the coup, he said.
The former labor leader also criticized Bolsonaro’s recent speech at the 76th session of the United Nations General Assembly in New York.
He stated that the ex-military “went to the United Nations to lie. Fantasy. He described the Brazil that only exists in his head.”
At that forum, he said, he silenced the fact that there was a parliamentary investigation into corruption in the Ministry of Health for managing the pandemic, how and when vaccines were purchased, because nearly 600,000 deaths are registered by Covid-19. .
As for the former president, Bolsonaro spoke on behalf of his audience of militias and neo-fascists. I can tell the United Nations the truth we see every day: 15 million are unemployed, 30 million are hungry.
He insisted that during his tenure (2003-2011) the economy and respect for Brazil grew, and we were champions on the environmental cause. We left with our heads held high. All this was canceled by Bolsonaro. He just lied, as always,’ Lola repeated, before calling him crazy and rotten.
Regarding the disrupted operation of Lava Jato, the former union leader explained that with this judicial group there was a clear strategy behind what happened and that the judges of the southern city of Curitiba, the anti-corruption, had stable contacts with the US Department of Justice. . They accused me of deposing Dilma, gave false evidence, and condemned me. I ended up in prison. My choice: I knew I was innocent, I had to stay to prove it. Lula asserted that he had determination, strength, and, ultimately, reason.
He indicated that if he had left Brazil, he would have been on the run. He stressed that “without Lula, the right had a clear path to reach the presidency.”
The former head of state regained all his political rights after the Federal Supreme Court overturned all his convictions in March, a ruling that gave him the possibility to run for power in 2022.
