    So disingenuous of Michel Temer. He apparently believes he'll be able to tame the public opinion in six months.

    How much more intimidation and how many more Marielle Francos until October?

    You have an odd idea about what will 'tame' public opinion. More murders in Rio will surely make him less likely to end the military involvement. The disingenuous part is holding a vote on the pensions just before the new government takes over, instead of waiting a month so the voters can have their say.

    REF: “voters can have their say”:

    It's NOT the voters but the POLITICIANS are basically AGAINST the Pensions-Reform.

    The Voters - The Masses - don't even know what the Pensions-Reform is all about and neither do they care [even the politically “Organized Protests” ARE missing]


    REF: “How many more Marielle Francos until October?”:

    The momentary Mass-Anger against the violence is predictable. So is the Short-Lived Mass-Memory!

    So don't bank on the disappearance of violence - neither overnight, nor on a Long-Term Basis. It's because of the crime - predominantly Drugs Related Crime - & the equally deep-rooted corruption are CLOSELY Inter-Linked.
