2. In the Forum of SP, President Dilma Rousseff and Senator Gleisi Hoffmann, national president of PT, denounced Luis Inácio Lula da Silva’s condition as a political prisoner during various activities and interviews. “They realized  that President Lula would have an overwhelming victory. When he was free he was traveling across Brazil in bus caravans, and this compromised the possibility of one of their candidates emerging. So, they enacted the third and gravest stage of the coup with Lula’s imprisonment,” said Dilma. Read more here: http://www.pt.org.br/em-cuba-dilma-e-gleisi-denunciam-prisao-politica-de-lula/
