Once more, the powers and the anti-people interests joined together
and they both fall both upon my head again. I am not accused, I am
insulted; I am not opposed by, I am fakely charged, and I am not given
the sacred right to defend myself. My voice must be choked, so as I
cannot defend, as always I have been done, the Brazilian people,
mainly the humble people.
I follow my destiny as set ahead. After decades of being ruled and
exploited by the International Economical and Financial Groups, I
turned myself leader of a revolution and I won. I started them the
work of national liberation and I installed the social welfare regime.
I was obliged to resign, but I returned back to office supported by
the Brazilian people's arms.
International Groups, working out an underground campaign, allied to
Domestic Groups both revolted against the labor law. The extra profit
bill was withstood in the National Congress. Hatred was raised against
the fair correction of the national minimum wages. I decided to
upgrade the national freedom through PETROBRÁS, the National Brazilian
Oil Company, and it hardly starts to work and a rioting wave grows
against it. ELETROBRAS, the National Electrical Power Company, has
been despairely hindered.
They do not want the Brazilian Worker to be free. They do not want the
Brazilian People to be free. I took office with raising inflation
destroying the value of the salaries. Foreign companies achieved
profits of 500% per year. More than one hundred million US dollar
frauds in importing operations were unveiled. The coffee crisis came
up, increasing our main product value. We tried to defend its price
and the response was a violent strike against our economy, obliging us
I have been struggling month after month, day after day, hour after
hour, withstanding a constant, never-ending pressure, silently bearing
everything, forgetting everything, resigning to myself, all that to
defend the people that now do fall aside unsupported. I have nothing
to give to the people, but my own blood. Should the meat-eating birds
want to suck someone's blood, want to suck the Brazilian people, I do
offer my life in holocaus to the people.
I chose that way to be always with you. When you suffer humiliation
you shall feel my soul suffering beside you. When famine hits your
door, you shall feel in your chest the energy to struggle not only for
yourself but also for your children. When you are offended, you shall
feel in your thoughts the power for reaction. My sacrifice shall keep
you joined together and my name shall be your fight banner. Each drip
of my blood shall be an immortal flame on your conscience and shall
keep the sacred vibration to resist. To the odium I respond with the
mercy. And to those thinking to have defeated me, I do respond with my
I have been the people's slave and today I am getting my liberty to
the everlasting life. But the people, whom I have been slave of, shall
not be anybody's slave again. My sacrifice shall stay forever in their
soul and my blood shall be the price of their rescue. I fought against
Brazil's exploitation. I fought against the Brazilian people's
mistreatment. I have been fighting without weapons. The hatred, the
lies, the fake deeds, nothing took me down. I do fear nothing. Firmly
and softly I step forward the eternity, leaving life to go into
