1. The Democratic Vigil, on Olga Benário square in Curitiba, in front of the Federal Police headquarters where ex-President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva is being held as a political prisoner, had a different kind of afternoon today. Under the leadership of various musicians, they held a traditional St. John’s party called the “Arraia de São João for Comrade Lula”. It was a St. John’s Lula party in homage to the ex-President. There was a lot of music and traditional St. John’s Day foods and a lot of enthusiasm from the members of the democratic resistance who are fighting for Lula’s freedom. See video here:

2. In addition to the party, the activities in the Vigil started this morning with dozens of activists yelling the traditional “good morning!” to Lula, followed by the Democracy Network program in the Casa da Democracia. At 6 PM there was an inter-religious mass and, afterwords, the “good night” yell to the ex-President.
