Mostly for Brazilian TEDsters, what do you think about the current wave of demonstrations over the country?
Did you participate in one of the demonstrations? What was your opinion about it? Do you think it's a valid way to fight for our ideals and against preposterous public service conditions, while billions are being spent in useless soccer stadiums for the world cup and the olympics?
I myself like the idea of public manifestations to make clear what the majority of the people are thinking, but I'm kind of insecure about the eficiency of all this acts. If the government just lower the public transportation fares, maybe the crowd will settle and stop fighting? How to make sure that something will change?
For the non-Brazilian TEDsters, what are your impressions of our country in this moment? What is the image of the brazilian uprising in your country like?
