Bulletin 413 – People's Committee in Defense of Lula and Democracy

Straight from Curitiba – 4/8/2019 – 367 days of resistance – 8:30 PM

1. The crowd of over 10,000 people at the Lula Livre Vigil on Sunday, April 7th, left the ex-President very moved. In a note read by the lawyer Manoel Caetano, Lula thanked the activists. “In times of such injustice, your solidarity renews the spirit of struggle and resistance. Yesterday, from where I am here, I heard every word of support echoing the sounds of freedom.” Watch video here: https://bit.ly/2WQr32s

2. Sunday, April 7th, the date which marked one year of political imprisonment and started the movement for freedom for Lula, will go down in history, but the struggle and the engagement of the activists at the Lula Livre Vigil did not end there. On Monday, April 8th, the resistance space was the stage for a debate entitled, “LGBTI's for freedom for Lula: our lives in the post coup and post prison.” The initiative was made by the National LGBT Secretary of the PT with participation of several specialists in the field.

3. The presence of activists and supporters of Lula in Curitiba who came from all corners of Brazil for Sunday's protest also led to a special “good night” shout to President Lula on this Monday, since many of the visitors decided to stay a few more days at the Vigil. Despite the heavy rainfall the traditional greeting to the ex-President was very lively. Among those present were people from states like Amazonas and São Paulo, among others.
