I have been following since this morning the first session of the impeachment trial in Brazilian Senate. It is exhausting and overwhelming watching this badly cast farce.
I'll put myself together but, for the moment, I'll leave this comment Pepe Escobar wrote on his Facebook account:
BRAZIL: IT'S SCOUNDREL TIME
"Today the scoundrel-infested Brazilian Senate starts a monstrous farce with a fixed endgame; the impeachment of President Dilma Rousseff by next Wednesday – with no juridical base whatsoever.
My column about it is already with Strategic Culture – should be published, ideally, before the weekend. Title: “Brazil’s Banana Scoundrels Will Now Win Their Olympics.”
Good to know that Chomsky, Brian Eno, Naomi Klein, Tom Morello, Arundhati Roy and Oliver Stone, among others, urged in a statement for “Brazilian senators to respect the October 2014 electoral process which over 100 million people took part in.”
"The corrupt politicians leading the effort to unseat president Dilma Rousseff should be aware that there is an international spotlight shining down on their actions. If they follow through with their plan, they will be remembered in history as the ones responsible for the most damaging assault against democracy in Brazil since the 1964 coup."
"Brazil: The Provisional Banana Scoundrel Republic" by Pepe Escobar is a good start.
