From Maoist Road/translated from Google:
After the calculation of the second round of the election farce, we find that, despite the blackmail of the TSE and the unprecedented efforts of marketers, the rejection of electoral circus became vigorous. Abstentions, spoiled ballots and whites reached about 37,279,085 in the presidential race. Nearly a million and a half less than the first round, but a significant and frightening number for electioneering, taking into account the unprecedented efforts of millionaires campaigns to create an atmosphere of strife and polarization between the two applications.
Although the average remained, the absentee 2,439,004 grown in comparison with the 1st shift. If we analyze the 'no-vote' in the elections for governor, will also see a great victory of the boycott. In the state of Rio de Janeiro, for example, the boycott reached 4.34895 million (35.8%) in the second round, beating desmoralizadamente elected candidate, Luiz Fernando Bigfoot, who had 4,343,298 votes. The River, by honors deservedly received statehood over "rebels voters."
To cover up the embarrassment again of "party democracy" of the old state, the organizers of the electoral farce not disclose absolute numbers, statistics and distorted use the trick of "valid votes". Of about 142 million people considered "eligible to vote", including the percentage of 'no-vote', which is cunningly removed the overall rate by the TSE, the shift manager reelected, Dilma Rousseff (PT), got only 38, 2% of the votes and his opponent, Aetius Neves (PSDB) 35.7%. The boycott has reached 26.1% of the "electorate".
The troublesome thorn rejection of electoral circus and wear produced by the struggles between the legends of single party can not be erased with speeches calling for "unity", dictated by the coordination of the candidates' campaigns.
Although a considerable portion may have nullified the votes, voted blank or simply not attend the polls for not seeing options between subtitles or not for full political awareness, we are certain that a respectable portion, robust and growing, did moved by the path indicated by days of protests in June and July of 2013. Much of this is due to persistent and combative campaign waged by countless organizations, particularly the Independent People's front of Rio de Janeiro (RJ-FIP), who was born and forged in struggles of the combatant youth, raised in the protests of the state capital the slogan 'Do not vote, fight for the revolution!'.
The boycott "appears and grows"
Late afternoon and early evening of October 23, three days before the second round, independent activists and organizations like the Popular Revolutionary Student Movement (MEPR), the Student Network and Combative Classista (RECC), the Red-Unit ORNL, Revolutionary front for the Defence of People's rights (FRDDP), the Forum of Opposition for Base (FOB), the Movement of Residents and Users in Defense of Iaserj, the Popular Women's Movement (MFP), the Committee of Parents and Families of Prisoners politicians and the Maracana Village, convened by Independent People's front, held a demonstration against the new electoral farce in downtown Rio de Janeiro.
Protesters focused on camelódromo Uruguayana where thousands of leaflets were distributed, and then followed by march to Cinelândia. The video produced by AND can be seen on our YouTube channel titled 'River Activists exhort: Not Dilma nor Aetius! Below electoral farce.
Two days later, October 25, was one leafleting held at the Red Cross Square, also in the central region. During the months of August, September and October, the FIP-RJ numerous activities conducted by boycott the sham election campaign, as acts, pamphlets, debates, etc. The reports were published in the latest editions of our newspaper.
- Try to create this polarization between Dilma and Aetius. While one is assumed right, the other pretends to be "left". In fact, the 12-year rule of the PT showed that this party governs for the bourgeoisie, as well as its predecessor. This week we received the news of yet another farmer murdered in Minas Gerais, a producer of honey League of Poor Peasants. I've been researching and found that, on the question of the field, the PT government was worse than FHC, it became less and families killed more peasants. That's what we mean: no matter who wins, the people and their independent movements in the city or in the countryside, must prepare for more fighting! - Said one activist FIP during the demonstration on 23.
In São Paulo, on 16 October, the Independent Popular Front (FIP-SP) held a public lecture on the theme 'Electoral Farce and Water Crisis', Forro in the Square in São Miguel Paulista district in east SP.

In 24/10, the goianos performed the 'Act against electoral farce and state repression against the people', on the anniversary of the capital Goiânia.
The Independent Frente Popular de Pernambuco (PE FIP-) also conducted numerous activities, such as a debate on the elections at university and several pamphlets on capital Recife metropolitan region. On the eve of the election farce, activists posted a message on social network activity performed on the 24th: "Today we had another activity of agitation and propaganda election boycott. Again the people shows that, despite all the propaganda, blackmail and billionaire investment to convince people to 'choose' one of the candidates, the dissatisfaction on the streets is enormous.
