servers draw resistance and contest myths

Published

São Paulo – The launch of the Unitary Day in Defense of Public Services, this Thursday night (3), coincided with the proposal for administrative “reform” sent by the government to Congress. Right now, the project has become a target for mobilization of civil servants and the opposition. They intend to demonstrate that the government releases distorted public sector data. And that weakening this service basically harms the population.

Associating functionalism with privileges is a “trap” set in motion by the government and market defenders, noted Dieese’s technical director, Fausto Augusto Júnior. “It is not a corporate dispute, but for social rights in Brazil,” said at the beginning of the event, which brought together parliamentarians, union members and dozens of entities from the various areas of civil service – federal, state and municipal -, as well as organizations such as the Brazilian Association de Press (ABI), Contag (family farm workers) and National Student Union (UNE).

According to Dieese’s technical director, administrative reform is added to other measures that aim to reduce the role of the State. And making social rights become “merchandise”, he added.

Private interests

“The State that we have been hard-working since the democratization process, and which is consolidated in the Constitution, is at stake. It is not to reform, but to distort the Constitution. It is not just dismantling public services, but putting our rights in the hands of the private sector, ”said Fausto.

Next Thursday (10), participants of the day will hold a seminar with the theme of “deconstructing myths” around the public service. “Brazil has fewer servants (per inhabitant) than the OECD average (Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development), ”Said Fausto. “He has an average server remuneration below the international average.”

Many of the participants argued that the administrative reform project helps to “hide”, even, an issue that should be a priority: that of tax reform. Taxing large fortunes, for example, among other measures, would guarantee the maintenance of a basic citizenship income and could improve the provision of services.

Attack on vulnerable

The objective of administrative reform is to “end public policy”, said the president of the National Federation of State Public Servants and the Federal District (Fenasepe), Renilson Oliveira. “And let the most deprived hostages of privatized services,” he added.

For federal auditor Bráulio Cerqueira, executive secretary of Unacon Sindical (which brings together auditors and control technicians), the government campaign is based on fake news about public service. One of them, he exemplified, would be an “explosion” of personnel expenses between 2008 and 2019. But the statement cites nominal data, he recalled, while proportionally the Union’s expenses did not rise.

“Since the coup (referring to the impeachment of Dilma Rousseff, in 2016), a logic has been established in Brazil to deregulate means and regulate restrictions ”, noted political analyst Antônio Augusto de Queiroz, Toninho, licensed director of the Inter-Union Department of Parliamentary Advisory (Diap). The new proposed amendment is part of an ongoing strategy since Michel Temer’s inauguration, he commented, citing labor and social security “reforms”, in addition to the so-called spending cap.

“Fiscalist and ideological logic”

“This amendment is not intended to improve the quality of service or improve public management. It aims to commercialize public services, ”said Toninho, for whom the government’s proposals have“ fiscal and ideological logic ”. He also refutes the charge that public service is inefficient. Eventual poor quality, says the analyst, comes from insufficient labor.

This is also what the regional secretary of the International Public Services (ISP) Denise Motta Dau also cites, citing the case of SUS. “The pandemic has shown that we need more state. More State consolidates itself with investments. And we are experiencing underfunding, ”said Denise, for whom is underway“ an attack unprecedented in the history of public services ”. And an attack on social rights too, he amended.

According to her, many countries are re-statating public activities. “They privatized and services got worse.” For the secretary general of Condsef (confederation of federal civil servants), Sérgio Ronaldo da Silva, the government project “is a copy and paste of the report of the World Bank, of the Millennium Institute”.

Destruction of the State

An example was given by the president of Proifes Federação (professors from universities and federal institutes), Nilton Brandão. “The government has a policy to destroy the state. The budget sent to Congress comes with a linear cut of around 18% of universities and institutes. This means precarious education, which will lack money for surveillance, for toilet paper, for security. It is to remove the state of social protection. Have money. the question is where you are going. ”

Among other representatives of Congress, deputy José Israel Batista (PV-DF), who coordinates the Parliamentary Front in Defense of the Public Service, said that the project makes the servant more vulnerable and subject to pressure. And the State itself will be exposed to private interests. “We will not accept the end of stability. This reform, as it stands, cannot go through. ”

“Who wins with that?”

The retired judge and researcher Magda Barros Biavaschi, from the Forum in Defense of the Rights of Workers Threatened by Outsourcing, emphasized the “importance of the public thing to build a sovereign country”. This reform is linked to others in the sense of “destroying our citizen dignity”, he amended. According to her, the austerity defended by the government “has already proved to be catastrophic where it was implemented”.

Thus, the country is moving in the opposite direction of the decades of building a state of protection. And without the announced results, recalled the judge. “With these measures, what we will have is a small impact on the accounts they say they defend, but rather a deep depression in the demand for consumption, which succumbs, in awe, the very economy that they say they want to defend. What does this urge to destroy the public thing mean? Who wins with that? ”, He asked.

Banda Novo Planeta brings maturity and vibrant message in debut single

Published

By

São Paulo – The São Paulo band Novo Planeta debuted, this Friday (30th), on all digital platforms, with their first single Message from Jah, one of the five tracks of the project The Bonanza, which has no release date yet. In this first work, the four members of the group show maturity through a vibrant message.

The union came about after sharing the same passion for Brazilian popular music and also for poetry. Another common denominator, which resulted in the group’s sound aesthetics, is that everyone was inspired, since much younger, in groups that made history in Brazil, such as O Rappa, Charlie Brown Jr and Natiruts.

The group promises to bring songs filled with inspiration in its main references. In a constant process of transformation, the band brings songs that can be a breath in times of a Brazil marked by adversity.

Before the emergence of the current name, Novo Planeta, the quartet had already met and presented themselves as Made In THC, which later became New Planet. In 2018, they played at Matilha Cultural, an important and historic space in downtown São Paulo, responsible for being the gateway for many independent artists on the circuit.

In the band Novo Planeta, Dimas Santos, Mano Bob, is responsible for the voice and guitar. Gabriel Ramalho, known as Ramall, works on percussion and second voice. Meanwhile, Henrique Naske plays the drums and Rafael Almeida, the guitar.
