|Declaration from Cuba's Revolutionary Government
Thursday, May 12, 2016
The revolutionary government of the Republic of Cuba has repeatedly denounced the parliamentary-judicial coup d'etat, disguised with legality, which has been developing in Brazil for months. A majority of Brazilian Senators to continue the process of impeachment of the legitimately elected President of Brazil, Dilma Rousseff, and with this "provisionally" remove her from office for a period of 180 days, during which the Senate must decide, via a two thirds majority vote of its members, to definitively dismiss her.
This is in reality a ruse mounted by sectors of the country's oligarchy, supported by the reactionary corporate press and imperialism, with the purpose of reversing the Workers Party's political project, overthrow the legitimate government, and usurp the power they were unable to win at the ballot box.
