A national address by Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff on Sunday urged citizens to allow austerity measures to rebalance the economy, but drew noisy protests from disgruntled sectors of the population. Residents in a number of neighborhoods in Sao Paulo and other large Brazilian cities -- including Belo Horizonte, Rio de Janeiro and the capital, Brasilia -- could be heard banging pots and pans, with drivers flashing lights and sounding their vehicles' horns as the speech progressed. Some protested by shouting "Fora, Dilma!" -- (Dilma, out!) -- which also briefly turned into a globally trending hashtag on Twitter, as well as #VaiaDilma, or #JeerDilma. Calls for President Rousseff's impeachment have grown in recent weeks; a major rally called for March 15, has led some to fear a return to mass anti-government protests seen in 2013. Rousseff, Brazil's first female president, had begun her Sunday evening address on national television and radio by saluting fellow Brazilian women on International Women's Day, but soon turned to the troubling state of the country's economy: "We are weathering economic difficulties, but our foundations remain solid," Rousseff said.
This was the 'best' article I could find in English on the subject.
It was insane... I was sleepy watching a movie and suddenly I started hearing everyone in my neighbourhood screaming from their balconies and windows. But as I knew Brazil was playing against Argentina on the Davis Cup, I though that it was something related to the match. "Wow, tennis is getting really big here! Cool!", I tought to myself, and then I resumed watching the movie. One hour or so later I started looking news sites as I always do, and all of them were mentioning the booing...
Can you imagine Obama speaking on TV and millions of people all over the US booing from their homes? Crazy, right?, but that's exactly what happened here. Maybe this was the 'largest booing in the world'?! Should we contact the Guinness book?!
I doubt that this woman will finish her mandate.
A small taste of what happened.
