Best Gore has always been there for the downtrodden and right now our friends from Brazil, against all odds, are standing up to their government that rewards companies they have financial interests in with ridiculously lucrative, overpriced contracts in the name of the upcoming World Cup and Olympic Games Brazil is set to host. Best Gore will not stand idly by when asked to support the movement of we the people against corrupt elite.
Take a minute to read through the message above to see what it is our Brazilian friends are fighting for in Sao Paulo and other cities. Today it is them who need us, tomorrow it could be us who will need them. Let’s be there for one another cause our politicians sure aren’t there for any of us.
Furthermore, I would like to share this touching video in which a policeman with a great degree of decency expresses his feelings in favor of the people, not the corruption. The video is in Brazilian Portuguese and I don’t have a version with subtitles, however _Nexumen has a girlfriend in Sao Paulo and she was kind enough to provide a translation. For the sake of authenticity, I’m publishing the translation as provided:
He’s a police man expressing how he enjoys being a police man, but only the serving of people, not the corrupt version (that we mostly see). There are upgrades going towards venues that give the government money (world cup), and not the health care or education. He feels he may get sick and chance his life because of how bad the health care is. He’s crying due to that he disagrees about what is going on, being on the side of the protesting, taking favor for the public. He then goes on about friends of his dying in hospitals because of the long wait of being at least looked at and taken care of by the hospitals.
He then goes on that he enjoys the sport, football, but he disagrees that the government only cares about the world cup. He knows why he serves as a police officer, but he disagrees that the government tells him, along with other police, to go out there, stop the protests, continue with the shooting and tear gas. The guy doesn’t want to and doesn’t like to because he wants to serve the people, not corruption.
He goes on about that all of what he is told to do, along with putting his life in danger against criminals, gets such a low salary, that he is reduced to rice and egg every day, tired of seeing his wife and son not getting any meat because of the low salary. And it isn’t just about the bus fares. Yes they increase, but it makes it harder with the cutting salaries and everything else increasing. The other police feel the same in the mind, even if they are there physically.
He then goes on (around 3:00 mark) that at one time as he was in front, that the people were trying to express their feelings, not violence and one couple came up to give him (specifically), some flowers as proof of peaceful protest, but he was ordered through his earpiece to start shooting them. Then there are the police who aren’t human because of the things they do to people, with what goes on inside the police hall, to go ahead and ask friends about those people. He states that there are those, like him, who receive orders not to put the criminals in jail, but the protesters instead, or face jail time, lose job as consequence. (Basically, let the murderers, thieves out doing whatever, but snatch the protesters.) Towards the end, he basically explains in short summary what he said.
Props to Best Gore member _Nexumen for the video, his girlfriend for translation and Best Gore member Yochan for the pic:
