Former Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva rallied in front of thousands of supporters in central Rio de Janeiro, Tuesday, calling for 'national sovereignty'. Speaking to the crowd, Lula called for current President Michel Temer's resignation and stated that the lawsuit against him was filed in order to prevent him running in the 2018 presidential elections in 2018. He underlined that... Еще he would fight for the truth and justice to clear his name. Lula da Silva was sentenced to nine years and six months in prison by Brazilian Federal Judge Sergio Moro in June 12 for taking part in a corruption scheme and money-laundering. «I don't want revenge, I simply want the truth. I will fight them and will prove their are wrong. They know that they want to stop me becoming a candidate in 2018,» said Lula.
