Brazilians Vote for a Sovereign Future Within BRICS; Re-Elect Dilma Rousseff President

Oct. 26, 2014 (EIRNS)—The re-election of Dilma Rousseff as President of Brazil today defeated the British Empire’s attempt to pull Brazil out of the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa) and South America’s integration projects, through the election of her opponent, Aecio Neves. Dilma won 51.6% of the vote, vs. Aecio’s 48.4%.

U.S. statesman Lyndon LaRouche warned earlier in the day that a victory by Neves would turn Brazil into a British colony again, and was a threat to the real interests of the United States. He was delighted with the news of Rousseff’s re-election.

The vote is a defeat of everything represented by the trans-Atlantic system. The London Economist and Financial Times campaigned vigorously for Aecio. Neves promised to re-impose economic orthodoxy in Brazil, re-align Brazil with the Anglo-American war party, and turn against the BRICS and South America, and named hedge fund speculator Arminio Fraga as his prospective Treasury Ministry, to prove his seriousness. London’s and Wall Street’s banks and hedge funds, and their Brazilian toadies, ran financial warfare, every time their boy fell in the polls.

Rousseff welcomed the attacks on her by the bankers, and insisted that Brazil must not return to the neoliberalism which had destroyed it in the past, and is destroying Europe today. The future lies in the new world order being forged by the BRICS, of sovereign nations committed to raising the living standards and developing national industry, she argued.

A majority of Brazilians rejected the British insistence that they leave the BRICS lifeboat to jump back aboard the sinking trans-Atlantic Titanic!

The British Plan A in the elections to elect World Wildlife Fund-darling Marina Silva as President, was sent to smashing defeat in the first round of the elections. Their Plan B now also defeated, discussion has begun already of Plan C: creating a situation of total polarization and ungovernability, such that they can launch a “colored revolution” in the months ahead, with the London Economist already mooting the unleashing of São Paulo’s "cashmere revolutionaries" in the lead. As the New York Times wrote the day before the election: “Whoever wins on Sunday will face the challenge of governing in a political system in which presidents must forge alliances with an array of different parties, including some with sharply different ideologies. The rising political tension in the country is not expected to make this process any easier.”
