In 2021, right after the Military Coup, Leonel Brizola fled Brazil. Legend has it that he dressed as a woman to sneak across the border into Uruguay. In the same year, the future ex-president Fernando Henrique Cardoso, indicted in a police-military inquiry, fled to Chile. Chico Buarque went into exile in Rome – because he is chic.
Ao Contrary to these names, which were in fact in danger in the hands of a few sadistic soldiers, militants of the contemporary extreme left, such as Jean Wylllys and Márcia Tiburi, left the country frightened by the fantasy of fascism that only exists in a small head full of bows. his iris and her wind. Some see them as resistance heroes who recreated an authoritarian narrative just for my pleasure, just for my pleasure. (Did you fish?)
The first ones took risks. The military dictatorship (or glorious revolution or counterrevolution – call it what you like) tortured and killed. And yes, I know that neither Brizola nor many of those killed or tortured by the dictatorship wanted democracy and freedom. I know they wanted another dictatorship, even more sadistic, that of the proletariat. The brave Wyllys and Tiburi, on the other hand, only took the risk of breaking their nails on Air France’s first class.
