For a united front of the entire Left against the coup, on the streets, in the elections, in the places of work, study and housing! Now!
We hereby translate and reprint a statement by our comrades from the Frente Comunista dos Trabalhdores (Brazil) regarding the escalating threats for a new coup by the counter-revolution.
Alert Manifesto by the Communist Workers’ Front, FCT - LCFI Brazil
A day after the carnival, the Army, the Globo TV channel and the Temer government escalated military intervention in the country's second most important state, as an prelude for the imposition of a new regime in the country. One month after the start of the intervention, a popular parliamentarian was executed, in a public street in the center of the city, with four shots in the face. Nobody should be fooled by the stories about a “robbery”. This was a message from the coup leaders to the Left. Their goal is to terrorize those who take a stand against the military intervention, to which the city council is also opposed. The following week and in broad daylight, armed fascist militias threatened Lula, the top leader of the masses and favorite candidate of the population, who is about to be arrested by the regime.
