Straight from Curitiba – 21/11/2018 – 249th Day of Resistance – 8:55 PM


  1. Today, in Montevideo, Fernando Haddad and a group of PT lawmakers visited the Uruguayan ex-President, José “Pepe” Mujica and participated in a public demonstration in defense of democracy in Brazil and for freedom for ex-President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva. The demonstration was made with directors and leaders from the Frente Ampla, a coalition of political parties which has governed Uruguay since 2005. The activity was suggested by Congresswoman Benedita da Silva (PT-Rio de Janeiro), who is a member of Mercosul Parliament. Senators Humberto Costa (PT-Pernambuco) and Lindbergh Farias (PT-Rio de Janeiro) who are also part of Parlasul, accompanied Haddad on his trip to the Uruguayan capital.

  1. Cristiano Zanin Martins, Lula’s lawyer, released a statement today, December 11th, accusing the members of the Lava Jato investigation of violating the partiality of the Brazilian judiciary by trying to condemn the ex-President again, without accepting evidence of his innocence, in a farce that was set up around a ranch in the São Paulo countryside. The Lava Jato investigation of Curitiba acts in a way that is incompatible with its duty to guide itself on the truth of the facts. Without presenting any evidence of Lula’s guilt, they only present what the investigative team calls the “best explanation”, wrote the lawyer.

  1. Lula was the inspiration for an international act, which took place on Monday night, (December 10th) in the ABC Metallurgical Workers Union Hall in São Bernardo do Campo, an industrial suburb of São Paulo. With the presence of political leaders from various countries in Latin America and Europe, as well as representatives from social movements and activists, the event served to remember the main conquests that Lula made for Brazil, and, more than ever, maintain and strengthen the fight for his freedom.

  1. The good afternoon shout to ex-President Lula on this Tuesday was led by Pauliana Gonçalves, an activist from the Housing Struggle Movement from Espirito Santo (MNLM). She thanked the social movements for their persistence in maintaining the Lula Livre Vigil mobilized in defense of freedom for the ex-President, who has been held as a political prisoner for over 8 months.


  1. The greetings to Lula on this 249th day of democratic resistance had the participation of activists from Cuiabá (Mato Grosso), São Paulo, and Laranjeiras do Sul (Paraná). “Hold on, President, because the time will come when this story is told in another way,” said activist Seril Andrade, who came from Laranjeiras do Sul especially to participate in the solidarity acts for Lula and to denounce the persecution made by the Lava Jato investigation against the ex-President.
