keep up the good spirits, you have all my solidarity
but I'm sorry I don't have the money.

the amount of money you have to pay is ridicolous.  I can understand the
need for a support from electors, but to require all that money, sorry,
is shit.  sounds like puppetry, esp. that the price is in the USD
financial magnitude.

I hope things change in Brazil and that the government will respect the
constituency of grass-root communities, even if they don't have access
to IMF money, which is a colonialist way to measure Brasilian labour.

ask them if they would accept Banco Palmas, or Bitcoins, for instance.
