Lula's Plans Increases the Prominence of Amazon and Petrobras

Lula-Geraldo Alckmin ticket emphasizes issues such as the defense of environmental heritage

The plans for the government of the Lula-Geraldo Alckmin ticket to the Presidency highlight issues that have become the target of recent wear and tear by the Bolsonaro government, such as the Amazon and to Petrobras.

The plan, updated from a preliminary text presented to the allied parties on June 6, incorporates themes such as Petrobras' right to strike and self-sufficiency.

The document now emphasizes issues such as the defense of environmental heritage and protection of the Amazon, in addition to including secular education, freedom of the press and the need for debate on the right of access to information.

In recent weeks, the rise in fuel prices has left Petrobras at the center of criticism of Bolsonaro, as has the death of indigenist Bruno Pereira and journalist Dom Phillips in Amazonas.

In this scenario, issues related to the state and the environment gained prominence in the text of the PT program.
