Straight from Curitiba – 1/29/2019 – 298 days of resistance: 10:05 PM

 

  1. Former President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva had his rights arbitrarily violated by the judiciary one more time on this Tuesday, January 29. At the moment that this bulletin went to press, the judiciary has not guaranteed his legal right to go to the wake of his brother, Genival Inácio da Silva, Vavá, who passed away today. This right is guaranteed in the penal code but up to now, there is a legal tug of war going on, led by judge Carolina Lebbos, who is pulling every legal trick imaginable in order to persecute Lula. Even when Lula was jailed during the military dictatorship during the 1980s, he was allowed to go to his mother, Dona Lindu’s wake.

  1. The Workers Party made a statement today in mourning for Genival Inácio da Silva, the brother of former President Lula. Known as Vavá, he was 79. The Party noted that Vavá was an activist in thethe ABC Metallurgical Workers Union and the PT, like his brother, and was a target of ferocious political persecution, slanderous accusations and abuses of authority, which he always faced with his head held high.

  1. In an official statement, the Lula Institute said that Vavá lived in the same house for over 40 years, and, like many other family members of the former President, suffered from the injustice against Lula. “In 2005 he was unjustly accused by the Federal Police of setting up a lobbying group for businessmen. At the time, the Federal Police invaded his home searching for evidence and did not find anything to support the accusations.” Read more here: http://www.pt.org.br/nota-do-instituto-lula-sobre-o-falecimento-de-seu-irmao-vava/

 

  1. On this Tuesday, the hashtag #LulaNobeldaPaz was one of the highest trending topics on Twitter in Brazil. The campaign for the former President to be nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize has gathered more than 450,000 signatures. The initiative to recognize Lula as an important actor for world peace was started by the Argentinean activist Adolfo Pérez Esquivel, who won the Nobel Peace Price in 1980.

  2. Today, on January 29, the French newspaper L’Humanite featured ex-President Lula nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize on its cover. Lula, who has been held as a political prisoner in the federal police headquarters in Curitiba since April 7, created initiatives to eradicate hunger in Brazil. As a result, Brazil was removed from the UN World Hunger Map. The article details all of the accomplishments that Lula’s government achieved to reduce poverty in Brazil.
