A major protest is scheduled to begin at 5:00 p.m. local time, in the city of Rio de Janeiro, which will be attended by former President Lula de Silva along with many famous Brazilian artists and musicians, including Chico Buarque, Joao Bosco and Eric Nepomuceno, all of whom reject the impeachment efforts being considered by Brazilian legislators.

The event organizers are hosting the event in order to generate popular opposition a potential vote in favor of impeachment by a Brazilian congressional committee, which is expected in late evening.

  1. Good. the people of Brazil and all Latin America need to know who is behind all these coups. Its the IMF, the World Banks and all the Rothschild’s money maker criminal mafia. The lenders oppose Dilma Rousseff for trying to join the BRICS nations and liberate countries from the money makers mafia.
