‘Why do these people hate culture so much?’, Asks Lula – RBA



São Paulo – “He put care for culture for those who don’t like culture, care for education for those who don’t like education, health care for those who don’t like health, the environment for those who don’t like the environment. He’s crazy. ” The speech is by former President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva about the government of Jair Bolsonaro. Last night (3), Lula participated in the virtual debate “A Cultura Resiste” – with actor José de Abreu, federal deputy Benedita da Silva (PT-RJ) and the poet Sérgio Vaz. And he said it is still incomprehensible that the Brazilian people voted for Jair Bolsonaro.

“We have a serious problem in Brazil. Everyone knew who Bolsonaro was. Everyone knew that he did not like education, culture, that he did not understand economics, that he did not like blacks, Indians, women, who were homophobic. Everything that sucks, he was supportive. And people knew. It is an extraordinary country, ”said Lula.

The former president jokingly stated that, as Bolsonaro has an astronaut minister (Science, Technology, Innovations and Communications), he would ask the head of the portfolio, Minister Marcos Pontes, to give a message to the president’s “intellectual guru” of the Republic, the “philosopher” Olavo de Carvalho, to warn you that the land is round.

Future of culture

“Nobody who speaks ill of Bolsonaro wants to remove (Paulo) Guedes. You can take Bolsonaro away, but you have to put someone who is doing what they are doing in the economy, ”he said.

The thinking of the financial system, if the current government does not support itself, “is to put someone who thinks intelligently how to make the market make money and the poor get poorer,” said Lula.

The panelists discussed the direction of culture in the current situation. “I thought Regina (Duarte) liked the culture. Why do these people hate culture so much? ”, He asked. “Is it because culture contributes to people’s political education, (to) improve people’s awareness?”, He asked, addressing Sergio Vaz.

Founder of the Cooperativa Cultural da Periferia (Cooperifa), in 2000, the poet replied that the reason is that “culture brings citizenship”. “The State does not recognize us, we are treated as illegal immigrants.


Playing the role of an interviewer, Lula wanted to know what the panelists would say about the president of the Palmares Foundation, Sérgio Camargo, who classified the black movement as “cursed scum”, according to an April audio and revealed this Tuesday (2) .

Deputies asked the Federal Public Ministry (MPF) to open an inquiry to investigate the statement. Talíria Petrone (Psol-RJ), Áurea Carolina (PSOL-MG), Bira do Pindaré (PSB-MA), Damião Feliciano (PDT-PB), David Miranda (PSOL-RJ) and Orlando Silva (PCdoB-SP), in addition to Benedita, sign the document. The Collective of Popular Cultures, of the Federal District, asked for Camargo’s dismissal.

For Benedita, announced as a pre-candidate for the PT to Rio’s mayor, the president of the Palmares Foundation “is a captain of the bush, the black man who obeyed Casa Grande to flog the black man”. Saying “indignant at this human being”, Abreu joked: “I proposed that he be tattooed with a swastika on his face and he wants to sue me”. According to him, Camargo represents the Bolsonaro government’s “scorched earth” policy. “Only then does fascism thrive.”

Law Aldir Blanc

One of the themes of the debate was the bill that allocates R $ 3 billion to the cultural sector during the pandemic of the covid-19, the PL 1.075 / 2020, the “Law Aldir Blanc”, by Mrs Benedita and others, approved by the Chamber of Deputies May 26th, with deputy Jandira Feghali (PCdoB-RJ). “The concern is that the budget for the culture would be permanent,” said Benedita. “We expect the Senate to vote and the president to sign it,” he added.

They cited the situation of the singer and composer Nelson Sargento and the composer Aldir Blanc, important characters of Brazilian culture who symbolize the situation of Brazilian artists.

A symbol of the Hose, Sergeant went so far as to sell his collection of suits and vinyl records to be able to support himself in the midst of the pandemic. “Aldir Blanc was also having a difficult life,” recalled Abreu. The composer died of covid-19 on the 4th of May. He had no health insurance and was experiencing difficulties.

The Rede Globo actor spoke of the difficulty of culture in the country after the pandemic. “Theater and shows will be the last ones to reopen (the activities). Do theater with two meters between one chair and another … The art of the show and the theater is collective, it needs gathering of people, and there will not be. We hope that the senators will approve the ‘Aldir Blanc Law’ as it stands, so as not to have to return to the Chamber. Let’s hope (Bolsonaro) does not veto and pay after sanctioning it, ”he said.
