As Momentum Grows to Remove Brazil’s President, New Pressure Campaign Sparks Rage

Glen Greenwald & Erick Dau analysis from the Intercept

A NEW, INNOVATIVE public campaign, aimed at securing the removal of Brazilian President Michel Temer, was launched on Monday night with a new website, at 342agora.org.br, designed to enable public pressure on Congress. The site is called “342 Now” – referring to the number of votes needed in the lower House to proceed with an investigation and ultimate removal of Temer – and its complex design allows online users to send messages to every Congress member not only by email but also through their platforms on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and wherever else they may be found online.
