 Straight from Curitiba – 2/25/2019 – 325 days of resistance – 8:20 PM

1. São Paulo city councilman Eduardo Suplicy (PT) has been one of ex-President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva's most loyal defenders during all of his public appearances. This loyalty prompted him to reorganize his schedule in Curitiba to visit the Lula Livre Vigil last Friday, February 22. Taken by surprise, the activists were very happy and animated by the visit of the former Senator, who is one of the most beloved lawmakers on the Brazilian left. He sent an optimistic message to the activists: “stay strong in the resistance. President Lula needs you.” Watch here:  https://bit.ly/2EbDQ87

2. The Federal Public Prosecutors Office called attention to mistakes made in the ruling against Lula by Judge Gabriela Hardt, a protegé of Sérgio Moro, the ex-Judge who became a politician in the right wing extremist government of Jair Bolsonaro. The office noted, “omissions and contradictions made by material errors.” Furthermore, they requested that parts of the sentence be corrected. “The Federal Public Prosecutors Office demands that these contradictions are fixed,” said the statement. They also called attention to an “omission on the operative part of the judgment”, due to a material error.

3. “President Bush, Iraq is not Brazil's problem. I have another war to fight in my country, against the misery and hunger of 50 million Brazilians who live below the poverty line.” This was that way that Lula told George W. Bush, in 2003, that he would not participate in the war against terrorism and the invasion of Iraq. The sovereignty of Brazil, defended by Lula, is contrasted by the submission of Jair Bolsonaro to the Donald Trump government.
