Lula has spent many an unpleasant moment during his visit today (July 30) to the Rio Grande’s Naval Hub, a municipality on the southern coast of the state of Rio Grande do Sul. Although organizers of the event struggled to concentrate militants, trade unionists and left-wing activists in the vicinity of the platform, the armor was not enough to contain anti-Lula and anti-Workers’ Party (PT) demonstrators.
Shouting “Lula, you thief, Moro is waiting for you,” a crowd of locals sent a note to the Workers’ Party on Saturday during an act in defense of the Rio Grande naval industry, organized by unions controlled by the Workers’ Party.
In addition to the cries of “Out Lula thief”, an airplane with a strip with the words “Lula, Moro waits for you” flew over the place at the time that Lula was speaking. Lula’s assurances tried to inhibit the demonstrators, but they backed down in fear of attracting even more people opposed to Lula and Dilma’s Workers’ Party into the place.
Many of those who offended the former president were dismissed officials from the local naval industry. “I lost my job because of those “son of a b.*.*.” who stole from Petrobras until the point,” he complained to one of the protesters who had a sign with the words “Out the Thief.” Nearly 17,000 places were closed in the local industry during Dilma’s government, when the first scandals that involved deviation of the PT in Petrobras appeared.
The night before, banners in repudiation of Lula’s visit were scattered throughout the city. Well petite leaders who attempted to remove the clues during the course of the entourage that took former presidents Lula and Dilma, Senator Gleisi Hoffmann and others accused of the PT in the Lava Jato.
About 5 thousand people were in the meeting organized before the mayoralty led by the paternal Alexandre Lindenmayer. Demonstrators were hired on the outskirts of the city and others were brought in by buses from MST settlements in most of the state of Rio Grande do Sul.
