Western media are depicting street protests as a noble populist uprising. The facts are much more complicated.
“Speed it up, there, Maria [the generic ‘maid name’], we have to get out to protest against this government that made us pay you minimum wage.”

The Freedom of Information Act shows that the US overthrew democratically elected socialist South American governments and put in pro-US business dictators in the past, all under the guise of fighting “Communism” and as this article points out, what’s happening again in Brazil seems very similar in nature.
