This is a letter for the freedom of Lula da Silva.

Free Lula

A worker in the steel industry, and trade unionist, Lula became the president of the trade union of steel workers, and meticulously built an extremely successful political career.

In 2002 he was elected president of Brazil, one of the most important emerging markets. Maybe destiny played a trick, he was the one who promoted the major strikes during Brazil’s atrocious dictatorship, which contributed of the fall of the illegitimate regime.

His presidency was a huge success, both in economic terms and social terms, he tripled the per capita income and reduced poverty massively.

And this is what they didn’t forgive him, he was condemned to 25 years in jail for corruption charges in a country, where, ever since the colony, nothing is clean, except for Lula.

The truth is, they couldn’t beat him at the polls, so they had to jail him.

Another déjà vu of Kafka’s ‘Process’.
