In Poland, the hope rising from the opposition prior to the presidential

“Rafal, Rafal ! “ The applause filled the air. Rafal Trzaskowski, in blue jacket on white shirt, no tie, appears on stage. With its old brick houses with facades covered with vine, the market square of Olsztyn, a city of 600 000 inhabitants in the former east Prussia, is teeming with people. Under the flags Polish and european, a thousand people flocked to see the candidate in last-minute to the presidential election of Sunday 28 June.

In Poland, the hope rising from the opposition prior to the presidential

Rafal Trzaskowski, the mayor of Warsaw, brings hope to the Polish opposition to a few days of the election. He was replaced at short notice the candidate Malgorzata Kidawa-Blonska, who collapsed in mid-may in the opinion polls, in favor of a postponement of the election because of a pandemic Covid-19. Centrist candidate of the Coalition civic (KB, liberal), is that it threatens the immediate past president, Andrzej Duda, from the conservative nationalist Law and Justice (PiS), in power since 2015.

In a few weeks, it has risen to the rank of leader of the opposition, bringing together more than 28 % of the latest voting intentions for the first round. Duda, himself, is credited with 41.5 %. Rafal Trzaskowski, however, could prevail on the 12th of July in the second round, narrowly, the other voters of the opposition, left, right, or far right, preferring to mostly defer their vote on him.

A promise of change

Rafal Trzaskowski is fully playing the card of protest. “Enough “, ” We are fed up ! “, one reads on the placards. “Tired of the hypocrisy, the propaganda, of the Church that meddles in everything “, lists Alina Szydlowska, 71 years, professor of EPS in retirement. “And the autocracy of a sick man “, referring to the leader of PiS, Jaroslaw Kaczynski, who for the past five years, pulling the strings without interfering directly.

The government majority will remain acquired to the PiS after the election. But in case of victory, Rafal Trzaskowski has promised to serve “counter-power” by capturing the full “right of veto and legislative initiative “ conferred on the president of the Republic. In the assistance, Tomasz Rozycki, 39, boss of the restaurant of a luxury hotel, do not expect anything. “I would hope that things change, that Poland is to be known for reasons other than the challenge to democracy “, he confides.

The mayor of Warsaw knows how to touch his audience. “The power wants to divide us, to oppose the towns, villages, countryside “, launches himself from the stage, while avoiding the subjects clivants in which the majority would like to lock him up. “Did you want to talk of migrants, the euro in Poland, the catechism at school or LGBT ? Is that what are the important issues, currently ? No ! This should concern us, these are the health services, the economy at the end of the pandemic, the education. “

Seduce campaigns

After Olsztyn, the centrist candidate goes to 40 km from here, to Biskupiec, in a large village of 10 000 inhabitants. Among the 200 people waiting under the scorching sun, Aneta and Wiktoria, two high school students 18 years of age. “Rafal Trzaskowski is the only one to be able to dislodge Duda. We do not want a president-puppet who sign it just submits “, explains one. On the societal level also, they defend the candidate who has signed a charter against discrimination and stigmatization of LGBT people in Warsaw. “For us, the young people, it is very important, all men are equal “, continues the other.

A position that is far from being consensual in Poland, especially in towns of less than 20,000 inhabitants where Law and Justice scores. But then again, Rafal Trzaskowski integrates it into his speech. “I will not be president of the opposition total “, he promises, with the intent of supporting “positive proposals for the economy” or advanced on the “european budget “.

The Vatican, France called to ” give, and dare to hope “

The secretary of the pontifical Council for integral human development, Archbishop Bruno-Marie Duffé, chaired, Wednesday, June 10, the traditional mass for France in the basilica of Saint Peter.

Due to the sanitary measures imposed by the pandemic Covid-19, this mass did not take place in the chapel of Sainte-Pétronille, too small to accommodate the hundred or so followers and twenty priests present, but to the altar of the Chair of Peter, at the bottom of the vatican basilica, where it had been brought to the reliquary of the holy regarded as the adopted daughter of st. Peter.

The VIIIe century, the popes had placed the kingdom of the Franks under the protection of st. Petronilla, giving them a chapel built next to the basilica of Saint-Pierre and won the France claim the title of ” eldest daughter of the Church “.

“We have nothing else to offer but our hope “

In the NINETEENTHe century, Leo XIII entrusted to France the care and maintenance of a votive lamp in the chapel, an event recalled in his homily by Archbishop Duffé, which called the country to “don’t let extinguish the flame of hope which the world so badly needs “.

The prelate of lyon has, in fact, insisted on the meaning of martyrdom and witness in a world where christians are “called to live a tension between a community solidarity, social, “worldly” and a communion of faith with the one who initiates the Kingdom.”

“What we learn from the witnesses and the martyrs, st. Petronilla, Peter, all those who have written the history of our country until the anonymous witnesses of these last time, is that we become one holy communion in Christ, a community “, a-t-he explained.

“In the Face of the development model that we feel, experiencing our world and life itself, we have nothing else to offer but our hope “, he stressed, calling on French catholics to “give, and dare to hope.”

“To share not only what we have, but what we are “

“We must dare to speak of anything that is beyond our convictions, dare to offer our lives because we can’t live without to share not only what we have, but what we are,” insisted Bishop Duffé.

In Brazil, agroecology between hope and suffocation

At Barra Funda, a popular district in the centre of Sao Paulo, the Armazem do Campo, one of the six shops of the city who resells the products from the Movement of the landless (MST) at cost price, can only accommodate four customers at once. Precautionary measure against the sars coronavirus requires.

“But the deliveries have attracted 30 % of customers more “, accurate Ademar Ludwig, coordinator of the network. This new dynamic is to take the production of small farmers has quickly found its audience, during the crisis, with the middle class, already accustomed to consuming these products.

Small producers are indispensable

Orders of eggs, for example, have increased by 100 % in recent weeks, to reach 2,400 units in April. “People buy from us because the profits go directly to producers and not to the high street “commended Ademar, who explains that the crisis reinforces the idea that you should buy close to home what is produced close to home. “But there is still much to do to the inhabitants of the peripheries have also access to a power supply without the use of pesticides “, says the activist.

From the beginning of the pandemic, the sales of 7 000 farmers of the green belt of São Paulo State have plummeted by 80 %. However, according to the brazilian Institute of geography and statistics (IBGE), these family structures produce half of the coffee and bananas consumed in the country, 80 % of cassava, 69 % of pineapple, and 42 % of the dry beans, food key in the plate of the Brazilians.

In the Face of this new situation, small-scale farmers were willing to recycle their production for fertilizer. A mess partly avoided thanks to the Foundation Banco do Brasil, which has decided to invest 1 million reais (178 000 €) to distribute 100 tons of food to 5,000 vulnerable families of Mogi das Cruzes, a city 40 km away from Sao Paolo.

But the absence of public policies weighs heavily on the small producers. The ” program of acquisition of food from family agriculture “, established in 2003 under the first government of president Lula in the context of the policy of ” zero Hunger “, saw its resources decline steadily since 2013.

Agroecology against agribusiness

Result : according to the IBGE, family agriculture, which accounts for 23 % of the arable land, is melting like snow in the sun as it extends the powerful agronégoce. “In Brazil, 100 % of the agribusiness is subsidized, so that there is no credit for the family farmers. It is David against Goliath “, grieves Ademar Ludwig.

The crisis of the sars coronavirus has also dug a little deeper inequalities already evident. Between march and April, 1.1 million jobs in the formal sector have been removed and more than 8 million people have suffered salary reductions. “In this context, malnutrition increases for the poorest, with more and more industrial foods, and with it obesity, particularly in children “, describes Paulo Petersen, executive coordinator of AS-PTA, an association which supports the transition agro-ecological small-scale farmers.

With 600 reais (100 €) emergency assistance monthly granted to the most fragile, it’s impossible for these families to choose a healthy food, ” says activist : “This aid only allows you to buy from large supermarket chains, fed by the agronégoce, even if the organic products are not necessarily more expensive. “
