Mercury Slams Brazilian President
Brazilian singer Daniela Mercury has launched a scathing attack on President LUIZ INACIO LULA DA SILVA, urging Brazilian citizens to use this year's (06) October election to unseat his government. The singer is enraged by recent corruption allegations and wants to see the leader ousted. She says, "It is really important that Brazilians do not vote for Lula da Silva as punishment for everything that has happened in recent years. "Brazil needs to punish people for the impunity that reigns over the country that is harmful to democracy and the Brazilian people. We are tired of the violence and the example which politicians give in this democracy of corruption."
