Beautiful women. White beaches. Tropical Weather. Dancing in the streets in celebration is a way of life in Brazil and now the country’s highest court has endorsed a move that is fueling a new civil rights movement thus giving them (further) reason to party. With this new ruling the citizens of Brazil won the right to march in support of marijuana and those supporting other civil rights issues quickly joined in the movement celebrating their newly reinstated right to protest. Freedom of expression, sexuality and gender acceptance now join marijuana as symbols of Brazilian citizens right to free speech.
The country’s highest court ruled last Wednesday that the “March of Marijuana” could be held, saying that the march is promoting legalization of marijuana while not authorizing the use of the substance during the event.
The “Marijuana Marches” were just about marijuana at the outset, but have grown into a medley of causes after the court ruled in favor of the protesters’ right to free speech.
Jandira Queiroz, a lesbian activist, came to fight “for the freedom to love,” she says.
“We all have the right to express what is inside of us,” says Nanda Shakti, an elegant visual artist painted in colorful makeup, as she picked up her bronze cymbals to join a discordant band of trombones, drums, and tambourines. “My specific cause is this: The freedom of expression, be it for whatever reason.”
Wow…. I always wanted to visit Brazil. And now that the beaches of Copacabana are filled with feminist lesbians, visual artists, rouge protesters, marijuana supporters and abortion advocates dancing with cymbals and tambourines I’ll need to crack my piggy back sooner rather than later.
