Germany: Ousted Rousseff claims to be victim of 'coup'

Former Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff denounced «judicial-parliamentary coup» that removed her from power last year, when speaking at Berlin's Free University, in the German capital, Tuesday. Rousseff was invited to speak at the lecture 'Brazil today: from the legalisation of politics to the politicisation of the judiciary?', which was organised by the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES...

She explained that «the main and most strategic reason for the coup was that Brazil was not framed in a neo-liberalism that was the prevailing system in the rest of the world.» She then vowed to «fight until the last minute» for Ignacio Lula da Silva to be a candidate in Brazil's 2018 presidential elections. Rousseff was removed from office on 31 August 2016, after Brazil's Senate voted 61-20 for her impeachment, having found her guilty of breaking fiscal and budgetary laws.
