Images from Brazil: Senators accused of being “Liars”

Brazilian Grafitti

“On my mind …” by D.R. Lynch

The graffiti on the wall, found in Buenos Aires, but equally applicable to current day Brazil, reads “Senators, Thieves!” In the caption, D.R. Lynch, from São Paulo, Brazil says:

What can I say about Brazilian politics lately? At first, a lot of us said it was electoral politics, timed to undermine the government the year before the election. Lula trusts people too much, some said. It is a symptom of bad campaign finance laws, we all said (and say). This government is no more corrupt than any other, we said. Maybe true, but is that any excuse? The daily headlines make you want to hide, to ignore politics, to cry. Will it ever end? It is so much easier to be in the opposition than to govern.
