#EleNão: On the 29, Women will go to the streets in Brazil and abroad against Bolsonaro and his male chauvinistic speech.

After the #EleNão (#NotHim) phenomenon in the social networks, rejection against candidate Jair Bolsonaro will take the streets this Saturday (29). In different Brazilian cities, and even abroad, demonstrations are scheduled against the PSL candidate and his male chauvinistic speech, of hatred against women and disdain of democracy.

Facebook already registered over 100 events summoned in Brazilian capitals, in inland cities in several states, and abroad, like in Lisbon, Porto and Coimbra (Portugal), Berlin and Munich (Germany), Paris and Lyon (France), Galway (Ireland), Barcelona (Spain), Sidney and Gold Coast (Australia), London (England), and The Hague (Holland), among others.
Artists and Supporter Clubs against “It”
Besides women in general and feminist movements, several artists are also mobilizing and calling to the demonstrations this Saturday. Actors, singers and bloggers are recording videos explaining why people should join the #elenão campaign and calling women to participate in the demonstration. In the video, other three women are challenged to do the same.
“I did my video calling all women for the demonstration on the 29. Let us say together #elenão! Let us reaffirm democracy, equality, freedom, and above all love!” posted actor Sophie Charlotte.
Challenged by Maria Gadu, the Sertanejo singer Marília Mendonça published in her account a video with over 1 million views. “Because in the end, it is not a matter of political choice, it is a matter of good judgment!”
Soccer supporter clubs also took a standing, like Gaviões da Fiel, of the Corinthians team, the Torcida Jovem, of the Santos team, Palmeiras Antifacista and Palmeiras Livre clubs, supporters of Flamengo and the Internacional.
Hatred Speech
Women are organizing demonstrations, but men will also join them. The demonstrations will take place in a movement of growing rejection to the candidate and his campaign, which gathers a series of repulsive attacks on women, black, Quilombolas (Maroon populations), natives, poor and favelados (who live in poor neighborhoods).
The most recent attack took place in Recife (Pernambuco) on Sunday (23). Reproducing Bolsonaro’s speech, his campaign supporters organizes a “Family March” in the Pernambuco capital. The demonstration had the soundtrack of a parody of the Baile de Favela (Favela Dance) funk music, where women who did not vote for Bolsonaro were compared to “bitches”. “For feminists, animal food in a bowl. Right-wing chicks are the best, the most beautiful, as left-wing ones are harrier than bitches”, said a part of the lyric.
Last week, Bolsonaro’s vice-president, General Mourão declared that poor families “are like mother and grandmother” they are “factories of misfits”. Expressing complete disrespect and prejudice against millions of women who worthily are head of households and raise their children and grandchildren in the country.
The statements are similar to Bolsonaro’s very words. He already said that “an ugly woman does not deserve to be raped”, that he “faltered” when he had a daughter, that women should earn less than men, and all without taking into consideration the defense of torturers from the dictatorship, an apology to violence against gays, among other absurdities.
“Next 29, women will once again lead a significant political movement in the country. We will go to the streets to fight a project that openly naturalizes male chauvinism and reinforces the use of this ideology to further exploit women and other oppressed sectors of the working class,” stated Marcela Azevedo, member of MML (Women in Struggle Movement).
“In all, we know that this project goes beyond a single face. Masked or unmasked, this project is held by anyone who maintains his actions in the framework of capitalism and does not point to the need of building a socialist society to actually guarantee women’s emancipation and the liberation of black, LGBTs and the entire class.”
“Therefore, from the MML, we will build with all our strength the demonstrations next Saturday, to defeat IT (o Coiso), but also to make a calling to women not to trust on the “lesser evil”, and not to accept anything less than our rights, which have been historically denied,” she stated.
