São Paulo – Applauded and clapping in return, the ex-deputy and ex-unionist Clodesmidt Riani was discharged this Thursday afternoon (30th) from Hospital Unimed, in Juiz de Fora (MG). He was hospitalized since the 21st, because of the covid-19. Now, at 99, “lucid and with progressive clinical improvement”, he will continue to receive care at home. On the way out, he was accompanied by one of his 10 children.

Leadership from the electric sector, Riani commanded the National Confederation of Industrial Workers (CNTI). He was also one of the main names of the General Workers’ Command (CGT), formed in 1962 and extinguished after the 1964 coup.

State deputy in the 1950s for the PTB and in the “opening” period for the PMDB, Riani is a remnant of the CGT, whose base was formed by leaders of confederations – basically connected to the PTB and the PCB. He will turn 100 on October 15.

Entities mobilize against cuts in the Education budget

Published

By

São Paulo – Students and education workers are holding demonstrations all over Brazil, this Wednesday (23), against the new budget cuts proposed by President Jair Bolsonaro. The movement calls for the approval of a fair budget for education in 2021.

Students criticize the Bolsonaro government’s budget proposal, which cuts R $ 1.8 billion in discretionary expenses at federal educational institutions. According to them, this reduction affects the adaptation for the return of face-to-face classes and the Student Assistance Program (Pnaes) in universities and federal institutes.

“Every student knows the difference it makes to have a tray at a lower price, so that the account closes at the end of the month. Without Pnaes resources, the price may increase. How will the student stay at the university without money to eat? The country is losing ”, warned the president of the National Students Union (UNE), Iago Montalvão.

In addition, the two research promotion agencies in Brazil, the National Council for Scientific and Technological Development (CNPq) and the Coordination for the Improvement of Higher Education Personnel (Capes), have their budgets dependent on supplementary credits, which can compromise the payment of scholarships in 2021.

“The year 2021 is one of reconstruction of the country. Investments in research, science and technology are strategic! But the federal government thinks otherwise and plans to cut education for next year, ”defended federal deputy Rosa Neide (PT-MT).

On the streets and tweeting

Student bodies also demand respect for university autonomy and the appointment of deans and candidates. Also included is the installation of the Mixed Budget Committee and a General Commission in the Brazilian Parliament to discuss resources for Education for 2021.

The act was convened by UNE, together with the Brazilian Union of Secondary Students (UBES) and the National Association of Graduate Students (ANPG). In Brasília, they perform an act at the Esplanada dos Ministérios, in the morning. Demonstrations are planned in other capitals, such as São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Belo Horizonte and Salvador.

The National Confederation of Education Workers (CNTE) has endorsed the protest and will accompany students in the demonstrations. “We are going to make a big stir in education. Enough of attacks on education professionals and students. We cannot accept the reduction of the education budget for 2021. We need more investments, but with this mismanagement there are no conditions ”, said the president of the entity, Heleno Araújo.

On social networks, mainly on Twitter, the student movement has been promoting, since 10 am, a ‘tweet’ with the hashtag # SalveAEducação to denounce the cuts in the Education budget.
