Dilma Rousseff’s impeachment was another Latin American ‘soft coup’ that allowed the US to put in Brazil a puppet president in the form of Michel Temer – an unpopular and weak leader, says human rights activist Lucy Pagoada Quesada.

As people take to the streets of Brazil in protest against the impeachment of President Dilma Rousseff and Michel Temer’s takeover of power as interim president, RT discussed the current situation with human rights activist Lucy Pagoada Quesada.

Interim President Michel Temer was vice-president under Dilma Rousseff and played a key role in her impeachment.

According to Pagoada Quesada, Temer is “a very unpopular de-facto president, because he was not elected by the people,” and is a “weak person” to be heading the country.

Many people, “particularly women,” are unhappy with the developments and taking to the streets to demand the reinstatement of President Dilma Rousseff, the activist told RT.

According to Pagoada Quesada, Rousseff’s impeachment was “a soft coup” – a new trend in Latin America, which earlier saw primarily military coups.

“It all started in 2009 in Honduras,” she said, referring to “the first ‘Congressional coup’ perpetrated by Roberto Micheletti.”

“And then later in 2012 we saw a similar pattern happening in Paraguay, with the destitution of President Fernando Lugo. And now we see it in Brazil. The difference now is that we consider this to be a racist and misogynistic coup that has been perpetrated against one of the greatest leaders of Latin America and also of the world – Dilma Rousseff, the leader of the ‘Partido dos Trabalhadores’ or the Workers’ Party in Brazil. And that has infuriated people all over the world,” Pagoada Quesada said.

“I am very upset of what is happening. I can’t continuously see this new pattern of destitution of constitutionally elected presidents by…the hands of the groups of corrupt individuals like Michel Temer,” she added.

Temer has been involved in several controversies: campaign financing limits violation, the Petrobras scandal, and some whistleblowers suggest he worked for US intelligence. Asked what voters think about this, Pagoada Quesada noted that Temer “is investigated for corruption.”

According to the activist, Temer “is just another puppet of the US imperialism in Latin America, just like Roberto Micheletti was at his time or Juan Orlando Hernández in Honduras.”

“Many of us do not necessarily agree with the policies of the US government in Latin America – in this case supporting a puppet and new type of dictators like Michel Temer because he will become one once the people of Brazil decided that they will stay in the streets demanding the return of their legal constitutional president. We know what comes after: the repressions, the killings, the disappearance of people,” she said.

She said that such scenarios have earlier been implemented in “many countries in Latin America.”

“This is a pattern. We’ve seen this also in Venezuela with the attempt of destabilization of the Nicolas Maduro government. We’ve seen it in Argentina. We’ve seen it with [Ecuadorian] President Rafael Correa,” Pagoada Quesada said.

    • aka “austerity”..

      • “However, despite the clear intention of President Roosevelt before his untimely death, those same cartels survived the war under the control of their pre-war Anglo-American cartel partners, who blocked the post-World War II plan to dismantle the cartels.

        Hitler was brought to power in Germany by an international financial oligarchy based in London and Wall Street. Faced with a global depression, the financial oligarchy opposed solving the crisis using American System methods of physical economic development as implemented by Roosevelt in the United States, and as proposed under the Lautenbach Plan in Germany before Hitler’s ascension to power.[2] Instead they fostered the creation of fascist governments in Italy, Germany, Spain, etc., in an effort to maintain their control over a collapsing financial system, at the expense of the welfare of the population. The fascist regimes brought to power were designed by synarchist financier circles, to enforce their genocidal slave labor and looting policies and to carry out military aggression in search of further loot.

        *This is the same policy seen today in the form of the global effort to impose International Monetary Fund (IMF) policies of debt collection and austerity. *”

        they use the same pattern…

        “the United States, acting under the influence of Allen and John Foster Dulles, who had been the attorneys for the Anglo-American-Nazi cartels in the 1920s and 1930s,[3] supported fascist dictatorships and carried out covert operations to prevent the election of anyone who threatened the interests of the financial oligarchy.”
