@dblenses For those whose main language is English, this reporting from The Guardian seems to be a good place to start understanding the situation in Brazil. It is scary.

An article (in English this time!) from The Guardian about illegal campaign donations favoring the far-right candidate going up to 12 million reais (almost 4 million dollars) from 156 entrepreneurs to mass-text fake news about the opposition:

A woman wearing a backpack with #nothim written on it (a hashtag created against the far-right candidate) was beaten, undressed, and imprisoned by cops until she declared she would support their candidate to them. Even if Bolsonaro doesn't win the election, a lot of damage has been done already.

News: The far-right candidate was receiving help of a fake news network. Companies spent up to 12 million reais (4 million dollars) on mass-texting systems to spread fake news about the opposition. The uncovering of this corruption scheme could be Brazil's salvation.

So, I just found out that the far-right candidate, Bolsonaro hired Steve Bannon to help him. What the fucking hell is happening?

"The problem with the dictatorship was to just torture and not to kill"
"We would start by killing 30 thousand, starting by FHC." (FHC is a former president of Brazil's democracy)
This is some of the things the far right candidate said on TV a while ago. And he is predicted to win the elections somehow. Which means people are either too stupid or as bad as him.
fascism, rape, a cry for help Show more
I have a friend who was raped for being a lesbian in 2015. Now, since the rise of fascism, she has been receiving threats. She is having anxiety attacks and is unable to leave home.
There is a fascist candidate who would make Trump seem like Obama. And he is about to win the elections. People are almost certain of that, and now we are desperate.
Please help by sharing about Brazil.

In my hometown, a guy was beaten by a hang for wearing a hat supporting the left wing candidate. His home, provided by the government for University students, was destroyed by the assailants.
This has already gone too far. Please, help. Search for news about Brazil and talk to your friends and family. People need to see what is happening here.
Fascism, cry for help Show more
Sorry for my absence. I'm fighting fascism right now. Things are serious in Brazil. A black man was murdered, stabbed 12 times while the murderer yelled the name of the fascist candidate. A girl with a t-shirt against the candidate was kidnapped by 3 men, who beat her and draw the Nazi symbol on her with a knife.
We are forming a resistance. However, Brazil needs you. We are afraid. This is a cry for help. Search for news about Brazil and share them of you can, please.
Am I paranoic? Well, there are fucking people threatening me as a "joke." "You better get used to it" is what they write in posts condemning torture or signaling the risk of enabling a man who plays with the idea of genocide to get more followers. If I weren't afraid, I would be out of my fucking mind!
No idea what I am doing, but doing it anyway.
Oh, and I'm Brazilian.
