Things are changing so fast that we can’t find what’s really going on in Brazil


As I am writting this text, somethings could change. For this special momento we are living there in Brazil, these things change in a blink. What was a moment ago could not be the same in the next moment. I am trying to analyze this situation here. And it is so simple.

First, this political crisis started while the presidential second round was happening. At that specific moment, a name arise to the general public and is the reason for all this crisis we are watching: Eduardo Cunha, then, an officer which had been reelected for a new term.

After all the elections were over, Cunha started his campaign for the Speaker of the Lower House. And started with it his threatens to the reelected Presidente, Ms. Rousseff. And, of course, her reelection wasn’t realy acepted by all brazilians.

Campaings for her impeachment started, in fact, by June, 2013. Since then, it has been threatened her government. But untill 2015, it had not created any major crisis.

In 2015, Rousseff started her 2nd term, expected to be completed in 2019. Yes, I said expected because it’s not clear that she wil do it. It may be by impeachment, by resign or even by anticipating elections. All of these things are unclear.

But, of course, her situation has got worse along 2015. First, because of new fares and taxes that elevate prices. Second, because of her unusual way to get media.

Ok, all major media in Brazil is always against her. Since 2011. But now this situation is really a problem: She can’t even say something that media get it as a threaten or censorship.

But, the thing is: she is not acused of nothing. But her judges are. And it is really hard.

How could this be? The answer is: They, aside of being investigated, are protected by media. And most brazilians don’t really get it.
