The dictatorship spoiled this country and continues to spoil



São Paulo – A three-minute video with pedagogue Paulo Freire (1921-1997) answering a student’s question – “What was the dictatorship for Brazilian education” – from time to time reappears circulating on social networks. The question was asked during Freire’s participation in the program Feedstock, from the old TV Cultura. On the day that Paulo Freire celebrates 99 years, the RBA republishes note about that day when the educator was surrounded by teenagers, speaking at the same time as a teacher and as if he were one of them.

Feedstock launched on Brazilian television – which is celebrating its 70th anniversary – a new format for an auditorium program, with the protagonism of youth. He also launched the presenter Serginho Groisman, who became the most popular attraction on TV Cultura at the time, from 1989 to 1990 (later Serginho moved to SBT, where he would present the Free Program, before going to Globo and spending almost two years in the “fridge” until he resurfaced with his High hours, without the same “free” footprint as the previous ones.

At the time he was interviewed, Paulo Freire was Secretary of Education for the Municipality of São Paulo, managed by Luiza Erundina (1989-1992), then in the PT. In his response to the student, Freire says: “Why, gee, this is a very cool question”.

Paulo Freire, international subversive

The educator, who also worked in the government of João Goulart before the 1964 coup, recalls that he was arrested after the deposition of Jango by the civil-military dictatorship for having proposed to the country an educational method respected worldwide.

“I was arrested for being considered a dangerous international subversive, an enemy of the Brazilian people and an enemy of God. They even got me this burden: to be an enemy of God, ”he says.

“Wow, the dictatorship spoiled this people’s country and continues to spoil today. The dictatorship did not inaugurate authoritarianism, because authoritarianism is embedded in the nature of our society. Brazil was authoritatively invented ”, continues Freire, considering that the post-64 regime gave a great boost to the growth of authoritarianism, violence and lies. “It was a tragic thing.”

“God willing, now I would say, that (the dictatorship) never reinvent itself. Let us take, boy and girls, young and mature, all, let us take such a taste for freedom, for presence in the world, for question, for creativity, for action, for denouncing, for announcing, that it will never be possible for us to return to that experience of heavy silence about us ”, concludes the educator.

The excerpt of this question starts at 12:45 minutes of the video below, posted on YouTube by Centro Paulo Freire. THE RBA suggests that it be seen in full. In 30 minutes, Paulo Freire also talks about ethics, democracy, public management and, of course, education.

11 million Bolivians will have free vaccine against covid




São Paulo – Former Bolivian President Evo Morales commented, this Wednesday (21st), the importance of youth in the electoral process that led Luis Arce, from the Movement to Socialism (MAS), to victory in the presidential election of October 18 . “Young people saw what it is like to live under the right and the dictatorship. And they reflected on how we were with our revolution and how we were under the coup, ”he said. Evo was overthrown by a coup in November 2019 that brought lawyer and TV presenter Jeanine Áñez to the presidency. With 90% of the official count completed. at 3:40 pm on this Wednesday (21st), Luis Arce approaches 55% of the valid votes. “What was at stake on October 18 was to go back to the past with the privatists or continue to the future with the nationalists,” said Evo Morales in an interview with Breno Altman (watch below).

Asked how the country will recover from the economic crisis aggravated by the coronavirus pandemic, he replied that it will be with the presence of the state. The Bolivian guaranteed that Bolivia will normalize relations with China, Cuba, “some European countries” and Russia. “Those who once asked for market, market, market, now say State, State State, in the face of the pandemic.”

Vaccine against covid-19

“We are going to face the pandemic. When we have the vaccine, we will distribute it to all 11 million Bolivians for free. ” According to him, tackling the pandemic and the crisis will be done through joint work between the federal government, governors and mayors.

In Brazil, President Jair Bolsonaro not only boycotts health policies, but goes further. On Wednesday, he forbade the country to buy the Chinese vaccine CoronaVac, which would have 46 million doses through negotiations with the state of São Paulo announced the day before by the Minister of Health, Eduardo Pazuello. “I don’t give up my authority”, justified the Brazilian’s head of state.

South America

About neighbors in South America, Evo Morales highlighted the “profound ideological and programmatic difference” between MAS and the president of Chile, Sebastián Piñera, from Brazil, Jair Bolsonaro, and the former Argentine president Mauricio Macri. But it was diplomatic. “Whether it is left or right, we must work together respecting our differences. South Americans cannot be isolated, ”he said.

Morales acknowledged that he may have been mistaken as president. “I was wrong, but I am a human being,” he said. “Now we have experience in public management, and we are going to take Bolivia forward, united, organized.” He affirmed that the new government will make “a pact of union between the parties of the right, businessmen and workers, a great national agreement, to raise the economy”, adding: “The moment is to consolidate our process of change, democracy does not end on election day ”.

Evo has been in Argentina since December 2019, where he went into exile after the coup in the country. He said that the return to his country still has no forecast. In an interview with BBC Brazil, the president-elect was not positive about the possible participation of the ex-president in the new government. “If Evo Morales wants to help us, he will be very welcome. But that does not mean that Morales will be in the government. It will be my government, ”he said.
