Bolsonaro removes Regina Duarte from the Secretary of Culture. Actress will take over Cinematheque



São Paulo – Actress Regina Duarte left the position of special secretary of Culture on Wednesday (20). According to President Jair Bolsonaro, she will take over the Cinemateca Brasileira, in São Paulo.

The secretariat leaves the portfolio after three months. She left Rede Globo and entered the government with the objective of “pacifying” the friction between artists and the culture industry with the Bolsonaro government.

“Regina Duarte reported that she misses her family, but so that she can continue to contribute to the government and Brazilian culture, she will take over, in a few days, the Cinemateca, which is based in São Paulo. In the coming days, during the transition, the work already done in the last 60 days will be shown ”, wrote Bolsonaro on his social networks.

Federal deputy Fernanda Melchionna (Psol-RS) commented on the departure of the secretary. “Regina Duarte has just fallen from the special secretary of culture. It’s late! But everything in the Bolsonaro government can get worse: it seems that she will take over the Brazilian Cinematheque in São Paulo, ”he criticized.


Yesterday (19), Bolsonaro shared on social media a video of an interview with actor Mário Frias, quoted to assume the position of Regina, in which he makes himself available to the president “for whatever he needs”. The two still had lunch together.

Bolsonaro’s publication was considered a “pre-announcement” of Regina Duarte’s resignation. In April, the president had criticized the detachment of the actress, who worked from home in São Paulo, and said that the secretary has difficulty handling the portfolio.

In the first week of her inauguration, Regina was already facing resistance in the government, mainly from the Olavista wing, after doing 12 exonerations in the Culture portfolio. On that occasion, supporters of the president raised the hashtag #ForaRegina on Twitter.


In her inaugural speech, Regina Duarte did not leave a good impression, using various metaphors to describe the culture. In one of them, he compared the theme with the “clown fart”, which “makes the kids laugh happily”. After that, she also stressed that “culture is like that, made of clowning”.

Earlier this month, the actress downplayed the cases of murders that occurred during the Brazilian civil-military dictatorship, in an interview with CNN Brazil. “Man, sorry, I’m going to say something like this: in humanity, it doesn’t stop dying. If you say ‘life’, there’s ‘death’ on the side. Why do people go ‘oh, oh, oh!’? Why?!”.

She still relativized torture. “If we are going to be dragging these deaths, bringing this cemetery … I don’t want to drag a cemetery of the dead on my back and I don’t want that for anyone. I’m light, you know, I’m alive, we’re alive, let’s stay alive. Why look back? Those who drag coffin cords do not live, ”added the then secretary, who gave a live chirp shortly afterwards.

In February, before taking over the portfolio, Regina also posted photos of several actors, which she classified as “her supporters”. Hours later, most of those mentioned, such as Carolina Ferraz, Maitê Proença and Carla Daniel, asked for the image to be removed.

Union denounces the death of 20 teachers by covid-19 after back to school in SP




São Paulo – The Union of Teachers of Official Education of the State of São Paulo (Apeoesp) held a demonstration today (4) denouncing the death of at least 20 teachers by covid-19 since the beginning of the return to school in the state of São Paulo Paulo. The entity also accounts for 1,861 confirmed cases of covid-19 in 850 schools. The protest took place in front of the State Department of Education of the government of João Doria (PSDB), after a motorcade through the streets of the capital of São Paulo. In addition to honoring these teachers, the act also called for an immediate suspension of classes until the new coronavirus pandemic is controlled in the state.

The demonstration began in the Masp free space, on Avenida Paulista. From there, the teachers went to the State Department of Education, at Praça da República. “It is unacceptable what the Doria government has been doing with teachers. Without closing schools, keeping thousands of teachers and staff and millions of students circulating every day, many in public transport, Doria and her Education Secretary reveal themselves as they are: enemies of life ”, said the president of Apeoesp and state deputy, Professor Bebel.

The Doria government has not released records of confirmed and suspected covid-19 cases in schools for two weeks. Much less if there was a death by covid-19 of teachers, students or other education workers. In the only balance sheet released on February 16, there were 741 confirmed cases and 1,133 suspected cases.


Although it claims that back to school amid the covid-19 pandemic is safe, the Doria government has restricted access to the Education Information and Monitoring System for Covid-19. With that, the governor leaves the assessment of the resumption of activities without any transparency. Only one server from each school can be registered and access the system, both to notify suspected or confirmed cases of the disease at school, and to monitor the general situation of the pandemic in the public school system.

The Secretary of State for Health of São Paulo, Jean Gorinchteyn, defended, on Tuesday (2), the closure of schools across the state due to the worsening of the pandemic of covid-19. He admitted that the increase in the circulation of people promoted by the return to school has contributed to the worsening of the transmission of the new coronavirus in recent weeks, as teachers and health experts have always said it would happen. Today, São Paulo has 17,802, with 9,910 in the ward and 7,892 in the ICU, the largest number in the entire pandemic.

“If we understand that people are threatened
against the virus, against the collapse (of the health system), we have to reevaluate
situations that could be avoided. One of them is the situation of the school. THE
The problem is not the school, but the movement of people. Teachers, students, parents
who take and bring their children. Even in public transport, the exposure that the
we end up putting people. At this point, it is worth noting that this
question of not having classes, ”said Gorinchteyn, in an interview with CBN radio.


In addition to the case records and the denunciation of the death of these teachers by covid-19, Apeoesp also highlights data from the Hospital do Servidor Público Estadual (HSPE) that shows the exhaustion of intensive care units (ICU) after returning to school. According to the internal bulletin of the HSPE, on Monday (1), the ICU occupancy for patients with covid-19 in the hospital is 95%. In wards, the occupation is 73%.

Yesterday, Doria announced that the entire state will enter the red quarantine phase for two weeks, starting on Saturday (6), due to the worsening of the covid-19 pandemic in São Paulo. However, he decided to keep the schools open. “Despite the restriction measures, state schools will continue to open their doors at the worst moment of the pandemic”, criticized Bebel, who guaranteed the continuation of the teachers’ strike, which started on February 8.
