1:22 pm
heard from our resilient community on why they support their candidate. the president our support in the upcoming presidential elections is called war and we're going to from portugal because he's the only one who brings an actual fresh new start for brazil in politics his support of the liberal as a center was a shadow because they're both social movement leaders that have struggled for democracy social justice and human rights on the ground with the people well i'm voting for bush. and he's a very bad person and a very bad candidate but i'm voting for him only because there is a shot that he would decentralize for the republic and will not keep the corruption machine working like the major parties has been doing the day that i support is wrong with from moving parts which is the new party just in two thousand and fifty and that's why i support him because he's the only true outsider in this election.
1:23 pm
the divide in brazilian society was on display this weekend on television some of the candidates sparred over policy and personality by the divide was also on the streets and several protests around the country both supporters and opponents of the controversial can eventually air boats and auto took to the streets marching and chanting our producer beatrice christa pharo sent us footage of one anti both an auto protest in sao paolo on saturday where people marched under the hush ellen now or not him about protests people shouted you can cry women will take you down. to united women will never be defeated.
1:24 pm
they chanted wilson or oh you fascist women will put you in line. feminism is revolution. and some protests are shared why they came to be heard ah. ah . on sunday supporters of wilson are also took to the streets chanting their name for him mito are legend.
1:25 pm
one protester explained why he's convinced wilson r.-o. is the best candidate. lots to discuss today and to help us with that wall is washington correspondent for global news and bremen germany rafael subgoal garcia is an independent journalist he's normally based in brazil and in sao paulo more you see or somebody you see is the brazil correspondent for the associated press welcome to the stream everyone let's begin with what brought so many people out onto the streets these past couple of days how what is it about well scenario that has elicited such large scale
1:26 pm
protests against them and then smaller scale but still sizable protests in support of him well i think it is show how polarized presuming is right now that he's a cool saying it's actually the whole the brazilians are united against the idea that the whole political class is corrupt but why bring a lot of people against most of our industries is like because since he was he came he became a congress man in the beginning of it in ninety it's he's being very controversial he makes a very offensive remark my remarks against women against black people against gays. and he is being in that time over there here ready defend in the back and they return to the military dictatorship in brazil which will resume full sixty four to eighty five in was a very dark mall. much in brazil what a lot of the abuse of human rights in torture here ready defended torture is being the fading in spreading violence and he was recently just
1:27 pm
a victim of violence he was a stand so i think people are united against this idea of hate and intolerance and then daughters they want to vote a lot of people like you are saying one of the one of the voters there in the say he i'm voting for also not oh i hate him but i voted for him because he's a better a lot of people voted for bill so that i can see that in my family it's voting actually for two protests the other side they don't just vote it's not necessarily a boat in sure they don't see the party they are against right now that is a worker's party duwayne rule of spidey. raisin in the polls like we are seeing their candidates now growing in the polls and so does a protest as a fault for protests speaking of protests where you see oh i know that you were out at some of the protests and sao paulo this weekend what were people telling you what are you hearing. well those people that were protesting on saturday they were
1:28 pm
really upset was also not about they were also trying to push their candidates forward that means most of the left leaning candidates in this race and some centrists as well oh of course this was a movement led by women but political parties also wanted to enjoy some some of the electoral dividends of this process you see in the last few days of the campaign trail the candidates using nearly unknown and that has taken their t.v. programs or their internet material as well so i would say that the leaders of the movement were women because of the bosal not alleging that the so aggressive against women in the last years or so but the political parties have also seized the opportunity to try to drive bush from out of out of the out of the runoff that is tragic for the eight of course there is there are slim chance that happens because this works for bush not in the polls is still very high but they're trying to throw some last punches just see if one of these other two this can take his
1:29 pm
place in the world so even to the aggressive agenda against women and i want to share with our audience exactly what that looks like for many people this is one who tweeted and hundreds of thousands of brazilian women protested over the weekend to say i am now against a politician running for president who has publicly called women ignorant to ugly to rape and undeserving of the same salary as men and they share some photos taken by reuters rafael what is it been like to witness this campaign. well. it's interesting that like you'll say that the polarization in britain that is taking place in brazil is important to have in mind we're not talking about extremes. on one side and also not on the other side the from different goals but it's not extreme the workers' party. that had blogs is not an extreme left political party though also not as from the extreme right but this election what we see is a lot of people voting against
1:30 pm
a candidate they're not exactly voting for someone they want but they're forty for someone they give someone they don't want you see thousands of people who take to the streets to protest i also know in a lot of them of the for the workers' party not because they do support them they have a lot of criticisms people from the left they have criticisms i was a workers' party but they actually have to fault they think they have to vote for have died in order to prevent. from waiting to borders off the right also are doing the same support. not just to prevent the workers' party from coming back again and corruption is just the background because you have. political parties for update on both sides so now there's some new announces i guess was another baby by bay here ex-wife there still has the country still has to investigate it's all of their news from the past few days so this is pretty much an election of polarizations of two very different sides don't necessarily stream
1:31 pm
sides. in people halting to prevent the other from we so i want to show what some of that polarization looks like and this is sarah who tweets so sad to see some of my friends dismiss their candidates racist massada nest homophobic sexist comments as unfortunate and equally sad that they say that the important thing is that he will eventually do good for the country when the guy has no consistent government plan and they're using the hash tag against an r o on the other hand though there is this week from michael who seems. not to just be doing a protest vote but he's actually pretty excited about a candidate michael says very excited about the prospect of a presidency but very afraid of the near end of it a belief of the military coup so interesting to put excited in that thought of potential to. break this down for us what do we know about how dodd well the problem would have bad right now is that he's very connected with lula which is a president the brazilian president just sent to jail
1:32 pm
a few months ago and he was the mayor of san paolo. some people like him but a lot like you are saying he's so people thing there for him in order to advance he would have to disconnect himself to from lula in order to be. to be the next president of the thing is both of them are completely very unpopular and they're going to have trouble governing after it because they need to make coalitions with congress in order to go over and they're going to have to make their alliances over there in. this thing with how that is. until now he wasn't a candidate who was a vice of lulay and they use luna's image to appeal for a day or forwarders especially in the north and now the president james to the former president being put in himself as a candidate even though the electrode just says he would not allow that to happen so that is drawing on the pools in this is a scaring
1:33 pm
a lot of people this is why you see what is going oh a lot of people doing disparate right now it seems interesting that you mentioned you mentioned disconnects in their memory so i want to go to you with this because disconnecting himself from but we saw a jail time endorsement result a former president to imprison. endorse this candidate so that seems like a disconnection that it will be hard to make what's your take. i don't think how don wants to make that this connection because that's what makes him so powerful at this moment or like new or not is a political genius of what this process has shown is that he has managed to organize brazil's elections from jail which is just quite amazing but the book concerns that most people have done a sara lee meaning that they will end at the end of the election problem is after the election and there's due to the illegitimacy issue because what's the matter
1:34 pm
has already suggested he will not recognize any results unless he wins and if the workers' party loses they will say well if i had been allowed to run we would have won the election and that makes this election throws well so we're now looking into an election that somehow at least what the poll suggests is tipping toward so i doubt because of the rejection that. few days but it doesn't mean that the election will end resource for your longer the political process the next day as many people express can be a very troubled as well and a headline here for what you just mentioned resells was not all says he will not accept election result if he loses so it's something to look forward to it this has already been pledged. your take on this because that that means almost one that there's a guarantee then that we will see a runoff and two if this happens what does that mean for president. well that tweets that he showed about a military coup is something there are
1:35 pm
a lot of people was really afraid in brazil right now that it might. take place another another coup there's one side you have also now with the support of a lot of military high office in ranks. or supporting his bicycle his mice i really mean his i started it was difficult for his presidency is a general he's a retired general who actually declared dead he would support the idea of. who if there is an iraqi in the country after an eventual also no election if the other side you have. this sort of puppet that's what a lot of people has some criticisms or something to say about that because he's not read it and didn't lay is that it is just the puppet and the military would not accept a victory of a puppet or a victory of someone who was actually in jail because. hoffman is the president of the workers' party repeated lee said that they were going to set live free if they
1:36 pm
win so they'll make a lot of seconds. so i was just going to tell you that does break the news of every every moment there's rick it seems the running mate for a lot of just said it will accept election results just a few minutes ok. and that i had to. so it's just amazing yeah i like to thank you so much for bringing that and it shows really just the fast paced nature of this and i'm going to go back to you but you mention puppet or that some people say that had that is a puppet others say the word i want to share this kind of we got in live from sammy who says why are people only talking about will snarl and had dad had that has alliances he's a doll and all this hand but this this this comment here seems to bring up the fact that there are a lot more candidates in this race than just those two it's a crowded field what do you make of the other candidates. well. you have some
1:37 pm
let's say interesting candidates from all bases from left to right right and you have for the center left you have seen you have my ina on the center right you have family who have all come in which is was the governor some problem but the thing is as the country is really polarized it's normally people are just going to this also not all too long to have that i was going to say a little bit going to have that as the only two viable options because as i said they're not exactly voting for someone they want their whole to against the other so these other candidates over ten different candidates we have a guest thirteen correct me if i'm wrong but i guess we have thirteen candidates. they really don't stand a chance because really the country is voting against someone and this look and so they have said they had an m.a. to presidential they may have to and they were and they are their candidate so as actually using that as arguments to try and get their chance to go to the second round and you were saying that let's not go with trains let's not the radical to
1:38 pm
the right or radical to the left we have options and they were proposing themselves as there's our sense here but there's a stream of. discourse somewhat exaggerated because of her not to have that job though. it belongs in the workers' party which has moved further laughed since two thousand and sixteen when president dilma rousseff was impeached it's hard to say that a party that's played elections and governed for such a long time is anti democratic in the way when we talk about terrible sin out of skin to see which is a new thing there are reasonable concerns based on things that he said in the past about one of the dictatorship what but of but also about what he would do if you were elected president and that's also why i don't that there's not a common element in foreign politics but here we we measure something we call rejection which is how much we don't want someone to be president and it's thirty
1:39 pm
seven it's. about thirty percent also matters it's about forty six forty five forty two different full so if you get one of the forty percent of the boat that's basically impossible to get elected and before that in two thousand and sixteen when brazil was living in the political crisis impeachment of that. fifty seven percent a rejection so let me present. it is very likely that the workers' party of the suv or whatever would have a very slim chance of winning but now that rejection of the most reliable some out of the other candidates that are also part of this race and many say oh and by helen i love that insight there thank you for the idea of a rejection poll that is not something that everyone would be familiar with but i also love hearing your take because you are all journalists covering this and so you kind of have a bird's eye view unfortunately just like in the u.s. and other parts of the world that doesn't necessarily mean that the populace trusts what you say and what your your your audience is they don't necessarily agree with
1:40 pm
what you are reporting so many people in brazil are worried about the spread of rumors and lies being passed off as news take a look at this something but as you surprised me because i want to ask you is a specific is a common. button which you hamas which came to this is not somebody just my space was going to say be happy to see. your column have. a couple going to. be your cup of but as you know so from us the. chief good human there's no way so newsrooms around brazil are monitoring what's really become a birol spread of disinter mention in the run up to this election a project called come pro body take a look at my laptop here it's bringing together twenty four different brazilian media outlets to fact check and to verify information on the instant messaging giant whatsapp you heard him mention just right there the group has. publishing
1:41 pm
power as well so three newsrooms must agree to the facts of any election related story before it's allowed to be published so keep that in mind because we got this live comment from sammy on you tube he says the media is manipulating resilience with big news. it's also that us message is a little like with saw here in the united states he thinks that when we we save facts when we say we reproduce the things he was saying before i guess we may like he would rape a congresswoman because she says you wouldn't rape her because she was. he says that the media is being unfair to him in a lot of these is fake it's fake news but we actually reproduce in effect it's a big problem he's the candidates that come things are also helping to promote fake news but that is a big camping in brazil against fake news like they hire a lecturer couric and frizzy you is staking different of these with other parties
1:42 pm
more than thirty i think it is joy. for it's facebook. is also part of an effort the u.s. is sending at the u.s. i'm sorry i think things from washington are going to brazil to see the impact of fake fake news could have. actual over there in their higher courts in brazil already said it election in the constitution will have a provision to say an election could be cancel if it's proved that result was influenced by fake news so it's a big issue and like you were saying what's up in brazil i think about south of the second biggest market for. in the world to claim that a lot of fake news information get in our hands i receive from my family group or from my friends a lot of information that are not true and they asked me to check this information and the answer is always no i didn't write it because you know what's good coming through and what's out there you see i see you nodding you're your head. seriously

what the electoral court's this is fake news has been the bundle to brazilian politics since well first of all so now those supporters are spreading those more than but not as you would see it differently but the workers' party supporters have also done that in the past and present other supporters of other candidates at them the same this is been an election that has been tainted by the news from the beginning to the star from the beginning to the end i doubt this is going to have a little impact i'm sure that it's going to be big it's already big now but in the last weeks before the vote there's usually a huge amount of the news you can in previous elections with not what's up with what used to come when email it's time for them to expose the fourteen to knowledge comes of what's up much more quickly i think this is still going to have a bigger impact than we're seeing no and that journalism is being attacked in brazil that's for sure whatever news is them a g two especially. you're going to see a lot of support just protesting against journalists if you're sternal is i'm not

trying to establish through just the journalism which is risky for democracy but i want to share just two comments from people as we head into the election this is what some voters are thinking about nicole says this election is a true battle between left and right it will set the tone for generations do we want a quality or do we want private profit that only benefits the top another person on that same theme this is jamal who says we need to tackle corruption nothing will work if we can't trust the people who are supposed to represent us they're using the public money for their own benefits they live like royalty which is unacceptable so corruption being among the campaign issues that people actually want to hear about crime unemployment being others rafael employer casting in your crystal ball for us what do you see ahead leading to the election and then between the election and the runoff which is do october twenty eighth. well just one quick comment about that about fitness. to media is being attended attacked in brazil is
1:45 pm
really under attack but at the same time a lot of a lot of times when you girl in trying to check information this information is available it's behind a paywall so it's easier for people to actually believe in what they do what's out because the way they try to check the information when they do try to do so it's behind a paywall so they have to pay to have access that information but concerning the elections from now on. probably more polarization probably more of the only candidates losing votes every new ball you have every couple of days three days you have the other candidates losing votes and i doubt endorse one out of both growing at the same time that the rejection rate of both of them also grow. and i just see maybe a scenario of via political violence in the future it is possible with this there is a ship with demonstrations people taking to the streets to show how discontent they are really will up well it's now but i hate to end on the had to note but i have to

so it does now appear to be just a matter of time until israeli forces come in that is certainly the message that we're getting from villages here themselves we spoke to one family and the the grandfather of that family saying that this time it did seem different the grandmother saying it was incredibly difficult having to put her grandchildren to bed and having them come to her asking her is tomorrow going to be the day that the israeli forces come and from now on any morning could be that morning when they do come in and start to take this village apart why it is so important both to the israeli side and the palestinian side is largely about territory this doesn't lie within the settlement plans known as each one plans that area for extended illegal settlement building that that is still in the works but it does live very close to those borders and there are other bedouin villages other bedouin communities in this area as well and so this is seen as potentially the first of
