"We governed for the "other" ones not for the slum dwellers ones they said Kassab and José Serra quietly."
photo-1.jpg, image/jpeg, 600x358
When Erundina was Mayoress of São Paulo the media credited the floods the City Hall. In that time, if I well remember, the Mayoress passed to be called of Inundina* by some journalists. Now that the Mayor is "other" and the floods continue to happen the media not only it doesn't blame the City Hall as it accepts the torn excuse given by Kassab that the flood is blamed by the tragedies.
But Kassab was not only that escaped from the rain. The Governor José Serra also made this. The State of São Paulo and his Capital always have billion to build bridges, viaducts, avenues, highways and tunnels to assist the road needs and business of the classes A and B, but does it never have some cashes to contain the hillsides where live the classes C, D and E. The collapse of hillsides is not previsible?
It is seeming that the urban problem is aesthetic. After all, the works to contain hillsides won't serve as bottom scenery for the Bom Dia São Paulo as that good-looking bridge built on Pinheiros river. The Brazilian journalists, especially the one of TV, seem if it doesn't matter a lot with what it happens in the poor neighborhoods, because his neighborhoods are always very distant of the floodings.
Today in the morning, when referring the families that are still in the risk areas, the anchors of the Bom Dia São Paulo affirmed that "... they say that doesn't have to go where... ". Curious modulation. It is seeming that the slum dwellers ones chose to live in risk areas and they don't only move to the big houses of Morumbi** because they don't want. Besides, until the PET bottles that float in Tietê know that the great majority of the slum dwellers ones emigrated of areas still poorer and it doesn't have relatives in São Paulo. The own Bom Dia São Paulo interviewed a victim that said that it intended to return to Paraná*** because it had lost everything.
Curious the public administration in São Paulo, not? More onlooker is the Brazilian journalism, that it blames the nature or the people in risk situation exactly because he doesn't want to run the risk of scratching the egos of some Mayors and Governors.

*Inundina = name formed with the junction of the word "inundação" (flood) with this Mayoress's name that was hated by the media in reason of being of left.
**Rich neighborhood of São Paulo
***Another Brazilian state.
