He was an important leader in the construction and execution of Brazilian foreign policy during the government of forming President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva

The former special adviser for Brazilian international affairs, Marco Aurelio Garcia, died on Thursday 20th. He was an important leader in the construction and execution of Brazilian foreign policy during the government of former president Luiz Inacio Lula Da Silva. It was one of the creators of the BRICs and the architect of strengthening of South-South relations.

He was 76 years old and suffered a fatal heart attack.

Speaking to the blog 247 in March this year, Marco Aurelio Garcia criticized the Brazilian foreign policy under the presidency of Michel Temer. For him, the world no longer see Brazil. He said that Brazil’s current foreign policy is" a disaster "

"We played a South American politics," he said, recalling a football metaphor made by economist Luiz Gonzaga Belluzzo. "We’re going to the third level or the fourth division of the world championship.". According to him, the world is "not seeing" Brazil anymore.

The Southern South policy implemented by the Lula government to strengthen relations between Latin America, Africa and Asia has been dismantled by the current government of Michel Temer.

Pain and blows in Brazil

For the Brazilian democratic forces, it is a tough defeat in the midst of the hard blows that Brazil is facing. This week, Lula da Silva was convicted in the first instance, and without proof, of having been favored with an apartment that does not belong to him and was never occupied or used by him. This decision may prevent Lula da Silva from competing for the upcoming presidential elections, as he is the preferred name of the current polls.

Recently, the former first lady, lady Marisa Letícia, who was also accused, along with their children, died. For the Brazilian left, the pain of these losses is added to an overwhelming loss of social and labor rights in Brazil, promoted by an illegitimate president imposed on the country by those who promoted the impechment of President Dilma Rousseff. Michel Temer keeps clinging to the office because he knows that after leaving the presidency, he will be judged for corruption crimes that have been committed in the basement of the government. But for now, he is useful to the interests of the elites who promoted the blow.
