Mulheres unidas contra Bolsonaro 
Women rally against fascism in Brazil



New York, NY – Brazilian women, individuals of all genders, sex orientation, immigrants, minorities, people of all religions, age, races and ethnicities gathered in Union Square on September 29, 2018 to support women in Brazil currently standing against the presidential candidate Jair Bolsonaro, over allegations of racism, misogyny, homophobia and xenophobia.
Such as in many other countries, Brazil has faced the rise of neo-fascism and has suffered with its consequences, which are reflected in politics and in the society as a whole. Amidst the scenario of the coup, oppression, censorship, authoritarianism, discrimination, hatred and violence, the alt-right politicians along with the hegemonic elite and the mainstream media want to maintain their privileges at any cost.
Brazilians reaffirm their request for justice for Marielle Franco, a Rio councilwoman brutally murdered over six months ago, protesting against misogyny, racism, class prejudice and against any kind of intolerance, against the alt-right presidential candidate, the fascist Jair Bolsonaro, who represents a setback for minorities and for all citizens of the world who respect human rights and who want a more fair and peaceful society.
These are a few of the things Jair Bolsonaro said on camera:

  • Females should get paid less because they can get pregnant
  • That he have 4 sons and on the 5th time he got weak and had a daughter
  • He said to another politician that she is too ugly to be raped
  • That if the parents were more disciplinarians their kids wouldn’t turn up to be gay
  • A good criminal is a dead criminal
  • He also compared the black communities directly descendants from slaves who rebelled and organized themselves against slavery (Quilombolas) with cattle, and said they are not worth it, not even for “procriation”.

On top of everything he is ex-military and he is in favor of the military dictatorship. We were in a military dictatorship from 64 to 85 and hundreds of people disappeared (we still don’t have bodies or records of what happened to them). During this time torture was a thing when questioning “criminals” and there was this specially cruel torturer called Brilhante Ustra that one of the things he liked to do was to insert alive rats on women vaginas. Former president Dilma Rousseff meet him when she was a prisoner (she was part of the youth movement against the dictatorship). When she was facing the impeachment and Bolsonaro when there to say his vote he said “in honor of Ustra, the terror of Dilma Rousseff”. 
There are multiple demonstrations organized this weekend all over Brazil and the world by females against Jair Bolsonaro.
