We read just the other day how Obama wanted to go to Brazil and enjoy the newfound support we have in South America, share in the love, and build on it for the future...

(Correio Brazilense) — A protest against the visit of the President of the United States, Barack Obama, sparked uproar and confusion in downtown Rio de Janeiro at night this Friday (6/3). A molotov cocktail bottle arremassada against the Consulate would have started the confusion. A security of the Consulate was injured.

The police responded with gunfire, rubber bullets, pepper spray and moral effect bombs against demonstrators. At least 14 people were detained on account of the protest tonight. Prisoners were taken to the fifth police precinct of Rio.

The United Socialist Workers’ Party (PSTU) released note this night condemning the police repression against the demonstration. Second the PSTU, the movement was organized by trade unions, social movements and political parties, as the PSTU and CSP-Conlutas, and brought together some 300 protesters. They left the rally by Candlemas on Avenida Rio Branco to the U.S. Consulate.

The party says that people were assaulted by police with batons and rubber bullets, at around 7 pm, when arrived at the u.s. Consulate. The military police have also accused the protesters of having thrown the molotov cocktail that started the confusion and provoked the reaction of PM.

In the note, the PSTU repudiated violence and stated that he will make new manifestation against the Government Obama and the “delivery” of pre-salt Government Dilma this Sunday (20/3), 10 a.m., the day of Obama’s visit to Rio in Largo do Machado.

The US President will be received by President Dilma Rousseff, this Saturday (19/3), 10 a.m. in the Palácio do Planalto in Brasília. Then at 10, the two attend a working meeting, and at noon will make a joint declaration. The Palácio do Planalto concluded in late this Friday (6/3) the last details of the visit.

(Breitbart) — President Barack Obama has cancelled a public speech he was scheduled to deliver Sunday in a Rio square during his upcoming visit to Brazil, the US embassy in Brasilia said.

The speech in the historic plaza known as Cinelandia, in the heart of Rio de Janeiro, “is cancelled,” an embassy spokeswoman told AFP.

Obama instead will deliver remarks at Rio’s Municipal Theatre, the official said, without specifying whether it would be open to the public or exclusively for invited guests.

No explanation for the change of venue was given by the embassy. Brazilian authorities have laid out a heavy security presence for Obama’s two-day visit to South America’s largest nation, and police in Rio had closed numerous streets from midnight Thursday in preparation.

On Thursday, members of an advance US security team were seen inspecting the surroundings of Cinelandia, where anti-US banners could be seen hanging from a road-side fence.

Some social and union groups have declared Obama a “persona non grata” and called for a protest, accusing him of a “bellicose policy of occupation” in foreign countries, and of attacking people “in the name of the war on terror.”

Rubber Bullets Fly at Anti-Obama Protest In Rio

A molotov cocktail was launched in front of the US consulate in Rio de Janeiro late Friday in protest of the arrival of President Barack Obama, the O Globo newspaper in Rio reported. Military police reacted by firing rubber bullets into the gathering of 200 at around 18:30 local time. A CBN news reporter suffered a minor injury from the shots and traffic was blocked.

“They came after us with clubs and tear gas and attacked,” according to protestor Thiago Hastenheiter. “They chased us through the streets and started firing rounds of rubber bullets.”

Police major Fabio Alessandro of the 13th Batallion of Rio’s military police said that the protestors, all left leaning social movements associated with the Socialist Workers Party, PSTU, did not have a permit to protest near the consulate along Avenida Rio Branco and had refused to disperse from the area. They wore the ubiquitous Che Guevera T shirt and carried American flags that said Go Home Obama. Most of the protests had been peaceful until two home-made molotov cocktails were let loose in the direction of the Consulate. A guard at the Consulate was partially burned and was sent to the emergency room at Souza Aguiar Hospital.

Fourteen protestors have been arrested.

See video here by a protestor at the moment the rubber bullets were fired..

Obama will arrive in Rio de Janeiro on Saturday and give a speech to invited guests in downtown Rio. Originally, the speech was to take place at the Cinelândia square in the city, but was changed on Friday. The Embassy did not give a reason for the change. Rumors on the street and in the local press were that security officials were worried of a possible terrorist attack against Obama in open air in light of the UN Security Council resolution against Libya on Thursday. Obama endorsed military action against Libya following over a week of violence against anti-government rebels there. Moammar Gadhafi agreed to a cease fire.

What is most ironicabout the Brazil protests is that the PSTU is a hard core socialist party in Brazil. While anti-Obama protests in the US consider Obama a socialist, the socialists in Brazil consider him a yankee capitalist, the bane of the Latin American left.

PSTU said on its website that protests will also take place in São Paulo and Belo Horizonte cities around 19:00 local time. More were planned for Saturday morning in the nation’s capital, Brasilia, and a final protest was being organized by PSTU adherents for Sunday morning, the day of Obama’s speech.

PSTU is a faction of the much larger Workers Party, or PT. It split from the ruling PT party in the first few years of the administration of populist pragmatic president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva on claims that Lula wasn’t left wing enough.

PSTU says the protest is to bring “American imperialism” to the attention of the millions of Brazilians who will be watching and reading about Obama over the next two days. The protestors say that Obama wants to promote a free trade agreement, long dead between the two countries, and aired concern of a potential US attack on Libya despite a cease fire call by Gadhafi.

Another complaint was that Obama wanted Brazilian president from the Workers Party, Dilma Rousseff, to sell Brazil’s newfound oil to the US. One of the world’s largest deep sea oil discoveries was made by Brazilian oil company Petrobras in the so called Tupi oil field in the Santos Basin off the coast of Rio back in November of 2007.

The US is interested in importing oil from Petrobras, and Obama has said as much. But the US has no powers over Petrobras, which is majority owned by the Brazilian government and intent on servicing local oil needs first.

It's not really the reactors that are failing, but since you love to blame corporations for anything/everything, I'm not surprised you don't care to make any kind of intelligent analysis.
