Capitol invasion hides death from white supremacism

Published

on

São Paulo – Brazilian economist Monica de Bolle, a senior researcher at the Peterson Institute of International Economics (PIIE) and professor at Johns Hopkins University, has been living in Washington for years, says that the invasion of the Capitol by followers of Donald Trump should not be seen as a coup attempt. In his view, the episode actually reveals that white supremacism is dying in the United States.

In an audio that circulated on social media on Wednesday (6), Monica de Bolle says that more important than the scenes of violence that occurred in Congress was the victory of Democrat Raphael Warnock, the first black senator elected by the state of Georgia. “We have a black uprising on the one hand, and the death of white supremacism, overwhelming supremacism, on the other. That is what we are witnessing now on television. A historic day that will mark exactly this division within the country. But it is a different division, ”he said.

Rebirth

According to the economist, it is a kind of reenactment – historical reconstruction – of the American Civil War. Also called the Civil War, the conflict, which occurred between 1861-1865, marked the dispute between the southern states, which wanted to maintain slavery, and the northern states, favorable to abolition. “It’s exactly the same lines being drawn and crossed,” said Monica de Bolle.

Just as at that time, white supremacists are losing their hegemony. In this sense, the episodes that took place on Wednesday (6), despite being violent, mark “the revival of pluralism” in the United States. And an “opening for the new”.

“I am seeing a lot of people interpret what is happening here as a coup. This is a misinterpretation. Even in total dissonance with what is the historical context of the United States. It matters right now. It is not a scam. We are seeing a wing that is over. A majority that is becoming a minority. But he refuses to accept his inferior position. On the other hand, there is a revival of pluralism. That’s what it is about ”.

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.

Folly

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.

Restrictions

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.
