There is no university without autonomy and respect for the community



São Paulo – There is no university where there is no academic freedom and autonomy, where teachers, students and employees are disrespected, where research is not free and funding is not adequate. This is what the ex-minister of Education and ex-mayor of São Paulo, Fernando Haddad, said in a virtual act in defense of the appointment of the elected rectors at Brazilian federal universities and against the intervention of the government of Jair Bolsonaro held this Tuesday night. fair (8). Instead of naming the most voted rector by the university community, which appears first in a triple list, Bolsonaro has disrespected the university autonomy provided for in the Constitution and installed allies, who were not even the most voted.

Universities struggle to revoke presidential nominations by Bolsonaro

The act, which lasted more than three hours, was attended by elected officials who were not appointed, professors, student leaders from universities and federal institutes of technological education, representatives of teachers’ associations and rectors and parliamentarians from different parties, among others. The demonstration is part of the week of struggle to revoke the appointments of intervening rectors.

Attack on university

The former government minister of Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva – who commanded the expansion of the federal network of higher education, with the creation of new universities, especially in the interior of the northeastern states, and new ones campuses in existing ones – said that Bolsonaro’s attacks on the Brazilian university will not be successful.

“We have a very strong federal network. The solution for covid will soon emerge through science, including that practiced in federal institutions. We have many universities involved in research. In the same way that science will defeat the virus, the network that sponsors the search for a cure and the vaccine for covid will also defeat this authoritarian government. ”

Haddad also stated that there is no doubt that the energy accumulated at the Brazilian federal university is sufficient to impose a great defeat on the authoritarianism of the “truculent and cowardly” government that takes advantage of the demobilization brought about by the pandemic.

And that next year has everything to be marked by a new tsunami in defense of education, as it happened in 2019, against the threat of budget cuts at universities. “We went by the millions to the streets of all of Brazil to defeat the government by making it release the 2019 budget. There will be no shortage of energy in 2021. Every Brazilian who loves this country will be by your side (rectors) to defeat the Bolsonaro government in this affront to science, freedom and our institutions. The people will be together, because the people are represented in universities. ”
