Curitiba, Parana, Brazil – 4/23/2018 – 11 AM
- The Brazilian President-elect, Dilma Rousseff, is planning to visit the Curitiba Federal Police headquarters building today (April 23), where she will meet with political prisoner, ex-President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva. The right for her to do this is clear and incontestable, and is guaranteed by international treaties that Brazil has signed and also by the Brazilian Penal Execution Law. According to the PT Senatorial Leader, Lindbergh Farias, the President is scheduled to arrive at 1 PM.
- PT congressmen arrived in full force to strengthen the good morning yell to President Lula today. Federal Congressmen Rubens Otoni (PT-Goias), Celso Pansera (PT-Rio de Janeiro), Benedita da Silva (PT-Rio de Janeiro), Carlos Zarattini (PT-São Paulo), José Mentor (PT-São Paulo), José Guimarães (PT-Ceará) and Luizianne Lins (PT- Ceará) joined state congressman Dirceu Dresch (PT-Santa Catarina) and Senator Lindbergh Farias (PT-Rio de Janeiro), the PT party Senatorial Leader, to compliment the resilience of the people at the camp who stand by Lula and serve as inspiration for all the protests and convoys which are happening throughout the country.
- The congressmen and women came to Curitiba to participate in a National PT Directorate meeting. It will take place this Monday (April 23) and will discuss the fight strategy to guarantee Lula’s freedom and denounce to the World the fact that he is a political prisoner, part of a large scale attack that has damaged our democracy since the conspiracy which resulted in the illegal impeachment of Dilma Rousseff in 2016.
