Consider the 1964 coup René Armand Dreifuss in his monumental thesis at the University of Glasgow: "1964: Conquest of the State, political action, power and class coup" (Vozes 1981) -a book of 814 pages, 326 of the which are original- documents made it clear that "what occurred in Brazil was not a military coup, but a stroke class with use of military force" (397 p.).
The assault on state power was hatched by General Golbery Couto and Silva making use of four institutions who spread the idea of the coup: the Institute for Research and Social Studies (IPES), the Brazilian Institute of Democratic Action (ADBI), the Group conjuncture Analysis (GLC) and the Higher School of War (ESG). The stated goal was "readjusting and reformulate the State" to be adecuase the interests of national and transnational capital. Here the class character of the coup.
The assault on the state was in 1964 and in all its harshness in 1968 with repression, torture and murder. The National Security Regime became the Capital Security Regime.
For the 2016 coup we have a thorough investigation of the sociologist and former president of IPEA, Jesse Souza "Radiography Beat" (Leya 2016). Like the 1964 coup, Jesse reveals the mechanisms that enabled the moneyed elite to be the organizer of the coup, carried out on its behalf by parliament. Therefore, it is a class and parliamentary coup.
Besides this, Jesse emphasizes "that all the blows, even today, are a well perpetrated by the owners of money fraud, which are the real 'owners of power". Who is on this elite? "The moneyed elite is primarily the financial elite, who runs the big banks and investment funds and leads other sectors of wealthy as agribusiness, industry (FIESP) and trade, supported by the mass media that distort and systematically distorts social reality as if it were "scorched earth and failed state" (that is exaggeration), hiding the corporate interests behind the coup fraud ".
The engine of the whole process, reaffirms Jesse, is the voracity of the moneyed elite to appropriate the collective wealth unhindered, with other partners such as the ultra-conservative media, the police-legal state complex and parcel of the STF (think Gilmar Mendes).
The dedestitución process (impeachment) went to the Senate. This promoted the ouster of President Dilma for the crime of fiscal responsibility. The leading jurists and economists and notable testimony during the hearings and official reports of several institutions, flatly denied the existence of responsibility. Most senators and trouble hearing consultations with highly qualified specialists since they had previously made the decision to depose the president took.
The audio of the conversation between Romero Juca, Minister of Planning, and Transpetro exdiretor Sergio Machado, reveals the plot: "Michel put on a national agreement with the Supreme and with all; there is for all ... and Lava Jato bleeding stops. " One reason for the coup was also ridding the arm of justice the 49 senators (81) indicted or implicated in corruption. Thus, except for the brave defenders of Dilma, such politicians without morality, decided to depose an honest and innocent woman.
Condemn without offense is hit. Class and parliamentary coup. Strike means violating the constitution and betraying the popular sovereignty whose strength Dilma Rousseff was elected with 54 million votes.
Yesterday in 1964, and today in 2016, either by military means or by parliament, it works the same logic: the economic and financial elites and political conservative caste practice prey of much of the national income (Jessé points to 71,440 people , only 0.05% of the population) against life and welfare of the majority of the people subjected to poverty. Much of the Congress is complicit in this coup. In it prevails largely the same structural intent to ensure the status quo that favors their privileges and profits.
The project PMDB "A bridge to the future," a brazen neoliberalism as to redden, reveals the purpose of the coup: reduce the state, reduce wages, liquidate the policy of revaluing wages, cut spending on social programs, privatize state-owned enterprises, especially the Pré-Sal, unlink compulsory expenditure health and education, minimize everything that has to do with culture, human rights, women and minorities. The ministry consists largely white and accused of corruption. No women or blacks or minority representatives.
We are facing a terrible political and social decline, exacerbating inequality, our perverse social sore, and empty the social conquests of thirteen years of the Lula-Dilma governments.
There is massive resistance and opposition in the streets of strong social groups and intellectuals who do not accept a conspirator president without credibility. The solution would be a general election by popular sovereignty and a new president who would represent the country in fact be chosen.Source: http://www.servicioskoinonia.org/boff/articulo.php?num=791
