Hello Everybody. Today I would like to present myself as Aline, Brazilian woman, 23 years old and university student.
My country has been in constant protest due to the current situation in the country. Our country has invested millions of money in World Cup, in the other hand, our health, education and security has been ALWAYS secondary. It is missing doctors and infraestructure in our hospitals, our teachers gain a very low salary and we have more than 50 students per class, and also our Prison System is fail, and because of that the violence has been increased up year by year. At this time We’ve had only 20 cents increased up in public transports, but for years we listen about corrupted policts, deviation for public money, including for the Stadiums we have built for twice expected price. Yes, we booing our President. And many will say “Lack of education”, but that’s okay, she never even invested it. our president. And many will say “Lack of education”, but that’s okay, she never even invested it.
Yes I’ll be on the streets protesting, because I believe in my country. We are not the country of football, samba and Carnival, there’s much more than that. We have much more of our culture to show to the world.
I am not against events like the World Cup, I believe it is an event to gather all nations, but it would be hypocrisy to pass to the world the impression that all the things are amazing, when in really, we’re without any infrastructure.
