    Oh fuck this former general guy got convicted for the kidnapping of 2 student activists

    My creative writing teacher in first year told me about those students once and the rumors of the tortures inflicted on them were so fucking horrible

    Description provided by someone who had escaped captivity where those girls were being held

    Those descriptions came up on my feed and I don't think I can read it, it's sickening.

    Black Mirror season 3 episode 1 anyone? I’d heard this was already going down over there but part of me didn’t really believe it until I read that article.

    It's interesting how quiet French media have been on the Brazilian election. I guess they don't know how to spin this while keeping it compatible with the "Leftist governments are corrupt and will turn any country into Venezuela" narrative.
    Anyway, is there anything I could hypothetically do to help some of the Brazilian people here? I guess I could possibly help with asylum requests, but France is probably not the best place for that right now.
