Brazilian punk rock against Bolsonaro


This 16 May 2019 Portuguese language video from Brazil says about itself (translated):

Bolsonaro is making punk rock resurge in Brazil“, says Mao, of Garotos Podres

History professor José Rodrigues Mao Júnior, lead singer of the punk band Garotos Podres, had a coffee with journalist Fred Melo Paiva. They talked about the controversy of the Dead Kennedys poster, about politics and Bolsonaro.

A resident of São Bernardo (São Paolo region), [leftist ex-president] Lula’s political birthplace, Mao thinks that the ex-president will only get out of jail with the people on the streets. “Bolsonaro managed to turn Lula into a hero, in the sense of Greek mythology.”

The legendary singer credits the revival of punk in the São Paolo region to the “barbarism” of Bolsonaro. “Nothing is more invigorating,” he says, “than having a cause to fight for.”

Now, after Bolsonaro’s Amazon rainforest wildfires and his anti-science coronavirus policies, leading to massive disaster, there is more reason than ever to rock against Bolsonaro.

Punk’s not dead — this 10-year-old drummer gives it life.
