Democracy prevails: Lula wins Brazilian elections

Six years ago, the coup against Dilma Rousseff ushered in a dark period in Latin America’s largest country. A darkness that deepened with the political imprisonment of Lula, and culminated with the election of Jair Bolsonaro and the disastrous – and criminal – acts perpetrated by him during his presidency. Now, Brazilian people have chosen hope over fear, and solidarity over hate.

Lula’s victory is one for the poorest, for women, for indigenous peoples – and, ultimately, for all of us around the world concerned with the protection of Brazil’s invaluable ecosystems as part of the crucial fight against climate change.

This presidential campaign was marked by political violence and by Bolsonaro’s suggestions that he would not respect the election’s results if he lost. DiEM25, and its political parties MERA25 in Greece and in Germany, urge all progressives in Europe to unequivocally denounce any attempt by Bolsonaro to subvert what is widely recognised as one of the most efficient and trustworthy electoral processes in the world.

Viva o Brasil! Viva Lula!
