I have moved to liverpool about two months. but things in brazil are
very very bad. the political virus our neodigitalimperialism... two days
ago bolsonaro went to the televison and made a speech he said that
people should come back to work! that the economy cannot break. that is
plain necropotics. yes this is the state we are... 

at the suburbs people just cant stop working there is no food there is
no welfare state... some groups ate organizing "staple basket products"
to the most vulnerable, the village where my family current lives in the
northeast of brazil has closed down and there have resisted a
communitarian mindset, these are the places that are going to suffer
less. but some favelas in rio dont have even water at their homes! the
mayors from the northeastern states are having meetings amongst
themselves saying that they are not going to follow the president that
they cant go against their own population, local organizing has been the
key. indigenous tribes in maranhao are going back to isolation back to
the forests.

the virus even though is just arriving in brazil I am afraid to say will
have devastating effects. even though is the Uk have far more cases in
Brazil, I feel safer here.

take care!!
