Organizers said social movements remain in “permanent mobilization” against any coup regime.
The Brazilian coalition of social movements known as the People’s Front Without Fear called for protests against interim president Michel Temer in Brasilia for Thursday.
Resist in the streets
Called “Temer Never! Resist in the Streets for Your Rights”, the protest will start at 5pm local time.
Guilherme Boulos, a member of the front and national coordinator of the Homeless Workers Movement, said that social movements will remain in “permanent mobilization.”
The Popular Youth Uprising, and other groups have also organized protests around the country. Named “Cunha in Prison and Temer Out,” demonstrations have been confirmed to be taking place in front of Brazilian Democratic Movement Party offices in 16 states in Brazil: Amazonas, Bahia, Ceara, Minas Gerais, Paraiba, Para, Pernambuco, Parana, Piaui, Rio de Janeiro, Rondonia, Rio Grande do Sul, Rio Grande do Norte, Sao Paulo, Paraiba and the Federal District.
Laryssa Sampaio, from the Popular Youth Uprising in Sao Paulo said, “There are two central ideas. The first, to denounce the institutional coup, which just passed a new phase, and to demand the ouster of Temer: he was elected as vice (president) not president. Second, prison for Eduardo Cunha, whose corruption is proven.”
