Maceió - About 2 a thousand agricultural, on workers to the Movement of Trabalhadores Rurais Sem-Terra (MST), they had obtained a ton and stocking of foods donated for the Bompreço Supermarket, after threatening to pillage the establishment, that is in the center of Maceió. Armed scythes, machetes and pieces of woods, the without-land had left in march of the headquarters of the National Institute of Colonização and the Agrarian Reformation in Alagoas (Incra), where they are camped since the last monday, and if they had directed for the Bompreço, where they had invaded the parking and they had not only entered to consummate the booty because the direction of the supermarket closed the doors and negotiated with the leaderships of the MST the release of foods.

One part of the society is working and paying tributes, a part of the society is trying to construct its life based on work, responsibility and respect, all with many difficulties; another part of this same society simply seats, drinks beer, plays cards, talks, does not take care nor of yheir children, uses these children as shield and to demand benefits and assistencialisms guided for a minority that only wants to promote itself politically and/or economically and this also it is not crime? Children are the only victims in this immoral history of corrupt government and irresponsible people. And the ignorant people because when they disrespect the law and the order also they are weakening the Justice and then what will be valid more and more will be the law of strongest and then they will be most wronged. Parasitic culture is this culture to only give without charging responsibilities, friend. If the hunger motivates this people to steal, why does not motivate them to work in this system capitalist so hated but of who they want to receive benefits? Is there bigger motivation to some one than to see his/her proper children crying hungry??? You give them land and they do not work nor to eat because they also want machines. Just see the examples that I cited before: they receive food and complain that they also want CIGARETTES. I am Brazilian and live in the north of Brazil, I have 42 years, I am of very poor family and I studied with much difficulty, I passed hunger and so my parents, I do know the people of the north and Brazilian northeast and I can say that a great part lives in the misery because it does not like and it does not want to work. They want carnival, parties, beaches, soccer, beer, cachaca, cigarette and to make children to abandon them or to use them to beg almses in the streets and to take the money for the ' parents ' or are spanked. The reality of the Brazilian culture is very different of that they divulge. We have a deeply immoral government, corrupt of one side(and does not import if of left or right), and a great part of the ignorant and/or lazy and/or criminal people of the other side. Who works and live with responsibility and respect is being strangled.
I saw lands next to a small city to the State of Pará to be given without-lands and they sold the trees of 5m of height in foot for 1/3 of the value of the cubical meter of the wood while that mount of women talked, with children dirty running in return and another mount of men passed the seated day playing cards, smoking and drinking, I asked why they did not knock down to measure and then sell the wood, they reply short and it was followed of laughs as if I was dull to ask that: ' it is too much work '. After few months, they already had sold the lots of lands for a very low price and they were another time disturbing the life of the city with that mount of children being used to ask for almses and to touch the people. Something very similar can be witnessed every day in an invasion in entrance of city of Belém where it has lands where they could plant for their survival but they nor keep the clean place, nor takes care of of children that, now and then, are running over in highway that passes in front and they live blocking it in protests to ask for blocks in the highway, that the city hall orders to clean the area and to collect the garbage, that does not have electricity and canalized water and that the basic basket is very little and ' nor comes with meat of first quality, nor a coke, nor a CIGARETTE package, chocolate... ' and ' ours children need something tasty', only some of the things that they find themselves in the right to receive gratuitously when there are millions of workers who nor meat of third quality have to eat, many times they nor have something to eat. When I speak in serious birth control is because children are the victims of this irresponsible people and, mainly, are give birth to be used as commotion. It is the irresponsible parasitic culture.

I'm just a brazilian who works very much, pays high taxs and is tired of seeing people using children and cheating others who also work and pay taxs like me. I was cheated for many years until I started paying better attention to the reality and I don't want others to be cheated like I was. The truth NEVER can be hiden. Let everybody know the other side of the facts and they make their mind but based on the truth. Why would I post this if it weren't the truth since I should be very glad for international donations cause they should relieve a lot the costs to the brazilian workers??? Right or left wing shouldn't metter cause this is true and I am telling only what I read in a trustfull newspaper and what I HAVE SEEN IN NORTH OF BRASIL BY MYSELF. I could tell you many other facts.
