Change makes its way
Brazil was an example of economic and social growth. Home to several important events during the last decade: Pan-American Games, Military World Game, Rio+20, Youth World Cup, World Cup and the Olympics Games in 2016. So much noise was silencing the voice of its people that were claiming for a change. On June 2013, the streets were filled with protesters due to the increase in public transportation. Nobody was able to foresee it. And since that day, nothing has been the same.
The Higher Danger
Every day there is more people that are losing interest on politics. That do not care what their governors have to offer them. That cry out so loud so they can be heard, that they do not only find in protests and, at times, even in the irrationality, their only ways to express themselves. Quite rightly has the Canadian Michael Ignatieff affirmed that “when the government does not treat its citizens with respect, these conclude that the least they have to do with it, the better.”
Traps, sleights and antidotes
The trammels and electoral abuses are not exclusive things of our country. The sleights to take power and stray there at any cost seem to be very similar. The antidote for this seems to be and must be the same.
During this week there weren’t any good news for the continent. According to a Cepal report, there are 167 millions of Latin-Americans that today live in poverty. It is alarming to see such realities like this one nowadays, after living years of economic wealth, government changes, and new politics. The debts remain the same.
