We want a Brazil where there is employment, where everyone is equal. A fair
salary to live on, for today hunger and poverty are the results of unemployment.
People have a lot of children and are poor, sometimes they commit suicide or
have their children ask for food and money on the street, and they are called beggars.
There are people who today earn R$100 (one-hundred reais) on which to feed
their children. Others are slaves at their work, where they receive a plate
of food and a bed in exchange for their labor.
We want a Brazil where there is more hospital care, more medical attention
given at the health posts.
Where there is hunger, health is lacking, or: undernourished children, adults
dying from disease, and old people standing at the doors of hospitals for lack
of attention. All this is due to the lack of better resources for the hospitals.
Sometimes people are seen to, but since they are poor, the doctors give them
old medicine and vaccines for pregnant women: the baby and the mother die. Others,
because of incurable diseases like AIDS, are abandoned.
Nowadays, only the rich are healthy, because they have money and when they
get sick they go directly to a private doctor. The doctors get so many things
for the rich person to survive that the heart dies and they hook up machines
to the brain - everything to make more money.
We want a Brazil where there are public schools, because nowadays the resources
for study are very difficult for people who live in distant parts, where there
are not schools or school-buses. And that is why illiteracy is common in Brazil.
