This Wednesday (17), the last meeting of the Dilemas da Sociedade Brasileira course will take place, on the theme Popular Project for Brazil, with the former Mayor of São Paulo and former Minister of Education, Fernando Haddad, Olívia Carolino, from the National Coordination of the Popular Brazil Project and researcher at the Tricontinental Institute, and Juliano Medeiros, national president of PSOL. The meeting will also feature comments by Eduardo Moreira, from Instituto Conhecimento Liberta.
The last debate starts at 7pm and will be broadcast online on Projeto Brasil Popular’s Youtube channel.
According to Teresa Maia, one of the coordinators, there were more than two thousand people enrolled in the course. Although registration closed on September 20, the classes are broadcast on YouTube by the organizations that promote the meetings and, therefore, are open to the public.
The initiative comes from Projeto Brasil Popular, Escola Nacional Florestan Fernandes, Escola Nacional Paulo Freire, Instituto Tricontinental and Instituto Conhecimento Liberta. The course had nine weekly meetings, always at 7 pm and with a certificate issued at the end of the activities for those enrolled.
:: The fight against famine is not new, nor is popular resistance ::
In Maia’s words, the course is managing to “build a collective interpretation of this crisis that Brazil has been going through and that affects the lives of the Brazilian people so much. We are living at a time in which various economic, social, political, environmental crises are being combined, which has deepened a lot in recent years, the health crisis and also a crisis of values”.
In this sense, the coordinator affirms that collective interpretations and solutions for this set of crises have been worked on based on some principles, such as solidarity, social justice, combating inequality, national and popular sovereignty.
:: Bolsonarism has roots in a Brazil built outside the State, say researchers ::
“This course has the idea of animating people for this debate on a national and popular project that is built by the Brazilian people and that the people transform Brazil into a better country for everyone. We know that this will only be done with a lot of struggle and joint reflection, bringing together all our ideas and strength to make this popular project possible.”
