New York, August 25, 2016: Disguised under anti-corruption claims and overshadowed by the Olympic Games, the final stage of Rousseff’s impeachment process is the Senate hearings currently taking place in Brasilia. President Rousseff will address the Senate on Monday, August 29 to defend herself and to denounce the hearings as a parliamentary maneuver. Supporters of the Brazilian democratic regime travel to New York to demand the reinstatement of President Dilma Rousseff to office.

The action in New York is organized by Brazilian Expats for Democracy, a Washington D.C. group, and Defend Democracy in Brazil, of New York City and will gather individuals from Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida. The event this Sunday is a joint initiative of groups throughout the world that demand that impeachment proceedings be terminated and that the vote of fifty-four million Brazilians be honored.

Since May, the interim government has terminated many cultural, educational, health care and social programs under the false pretense of fiscal austerity. However, in order to secure his position at the helm of Brazilian government, illegitimate interim president Temer has approved substantial raises to judges and legislators. This coup is a clear attempt on Brazilian sovereignty. Temer has already privatized major oil wells and has clearly stated his intention of putting Brazil for sale. One third of the 81 Senators deciding DIlma Rousseff’s fate as Brazilian President have been accused of corruption, some of them, including Temer could not even run for office in general elections due to corruption charges.

Artists , politics and academics across the globe have denounced the current scenario in Brazil as a coup and a clear attempt on the well being of Brazilian Nationals. Names like Harry Bellafonte, Bernie Sanders, Noam Chomsky, Oliver Stone, Allan Cumming, Ken Loach, Susan Sarandon, Danny Glover, James Green(Brown University), Glenn Greenwald, have echoed their support for president Rousseff and called for her reinstatement in an open letter.
