More than 20 Brazilian universities were invaded by the military police in the past 2 days. They confiscated material on the history of fascism, interrupted classes due to 'ideological content', removed anti-fascist banners and posters claiming that it was electoral propaganda.

In the state of Rio, the court ordered the UFF faculty to remove from the Law School facade a flag with the message "UFF Law Against Fascism". The judge even determined the arrest of the director unless the flag was removed within 12 hours.
UERJ also reported police forces removing flags in support of Marielle Franco and another one that reads "Anti-fascism UERJ". In Rio Grande do Sul, an event entitled "Against fascism, Pro Democracy" was also prohibited by the electoral court.
In Mato Grosso do Sul, a public class entitled "Crushing Fascism" was also censored. In Pará, a lecture was interrupted by the military police that questioned the professor about the ideological content of the class and threatened to arrest him.
Many other student movements and organizations reported military police forces inside classrooms, student units, academic directories, confiscating any sort of materials with 'anti-fascist' or 'pro-democracy' content.

Nazi Germany. Alive and well in Brazil. I wonder where the original ideology comes from, particularly considering that many Nazis fled Germany for South America at the end of WW2.

It is a classical way of fascism in colonial states. Almost the same things happens in colonies. Police can easily enter the universities and do anything they want.

Parece muito abstrato o conceito de RESISTÊNCIA. Então, nessa thread vou listar iniciativas que tornam essa resistência concreta. Você pode participar, compartilhar, ajudar, pedir ajuda, doar, RESISTIR.
(Se tiver sugestões me avisa que vou incluindo!)
