“It has pleased President Mitchell Temer to re-
establish the ministry of culture as a gift to the
preservation of Brazilian culture,” reads the twitter
page of Brazil’s minister of Education.
Over the weekend, people took to the streets, this
time around it was not about Dilma Rouseff, but
protesting about president Temer decision to
dissolve the ministry of culture into the ministry of
education as one ministry.
Reuter’s news reported that over 10,000 people join
one of Brazil’s iconic musician Veloso at a concert
in Rio de jeneiro as he led them into an anthem
against Temer’s decision to remove the ministry.
As the people raised their flags, activists who
consider the interim government as illegitimate
raised their banners with resignation slogan written
to president Temer.
Dilma was impeached earlier this month as the
senate voted for her impeachment trial to continue.
Even though Rouseff has vowed to fight until the
trial ends, the decision of whether she should go
awaits the 6months period as according to the
“That means if she is found guilty of the corrupt
allegations, her elected VP Temer will take over
government until elections in 2018.”
However Rouseff has blamed the interim
government of causing the social insecurity the
country is undergoing.
President Temer has also been criticized recently of
selecting an all white cabinet.
At the moment Brazil continue to be a nation of
rallies and protest amid the RIO 2016 summer
Olympics scheduled to begin on August 5 August.
