Law enforcement officers raided the headquarters of the Union of Oil Workers in Northern Rio de Janeiro (Sindipetro-NF) in the city of Macaé last Saturday, Oct. 20, and seized copies of the Brasil de Fato special compact edition on the elections, as well as copies of the Boletim Nascente, the union’s weekly outlet.

There are reports claiming the officers, working for the regional electoral court (TRE), tried to jump over the gates of the headquarters and threatened to shoot at the doorman if he didn’t open the door. As it was Saturday, there were no activities at the building. A union director had to go to the facilities and made sure the authorities had free access to it.

We, women and men, united in our commitment to democracy and human rights, express our unequivocal rejection of far-right candidate Jair Bolsonaro, a contender in the second round of Brazil’s presidential elections on October 28.

The positions that this candidate has defended throughout his public life and during the current electoral campaign are based on xenophobic, racist, misogynistic and homophobic values.

This far-right candidate openly defends the violent methods deployed by military dictatorships, including torture and assassinations.

On the Quito-Caracas return flight, the Venezuelan ambassador to Ecuador, Carol Delgado, was also on board, who was expelled yesterday by the Ecuadorian government.

“I’m going to my Bolivarian Homeland, we do not need 72 hours to leave Ecuador, in less than 24 I’m on my way to my land,” exclaimed Delgado.

The diplomat also noted that there are still representatives of Venezuela in the Embassy.

As Brazil’s Jair Bolsonaro has been positively impacted by the unlawful submission of massive attack ads against the Workers’ Party (PT) to millions of people via WhatsApp, the far-right presidential candidate could be disqualified from the race or be removed from office if he runs and gets elected, even if his direct involvement in the activities is not proven true, a law expert said.

Cano commented that the company Gold Marketing invested nearly 3 million euros for the recovery of this Ferrominera Orinoco plant that will be in charge of receiving all the coltan that is extracted in the country to concentrate tantalum and niobium, in the front line; as well as tin and zirconium.

“Now, the Venezuelan coltan will have an added value, since the ton of unprocessed coltan has a price on the international market that ranges between 26 and 39 thousand euros; We, with the tantalum oxide, will increase the cost to 157 thousand euros per ton. It is a productive chain of the Mining and Industrial Engine of the Bolivarian Economic Agenda”, emphasized the minister.
