This Sunday afternoon, May 6, Chico César sung for freedom for Lula with lots of music, joining his voice with the voice of the resistance of those who continue in the Vigil on Olga Benário corner.

We need for people to believe and do,” said ex-President Lula in a video that was shown this Sunday. “This country cannot think small. And I think big. Brazil can still become a great nation this Century.”

4. The legitimatly elected President Dilma Rousseff denounced, once again, ex-President Lula’s political imprisonment to a crowd of students and artists at Queen Mary University in London. “It is not bravado or petulance to say that Lula is innocent, and he is our candidate for the presidency of the Republic,” she said, to the applause of the crowd.

5. The Paulo Leminski quarry became a spontaneous site of resistance for freedom for Lula this Saturday (May 5) during the second edition of the Coolritiba Music Festival.
