Against corruption and privatization: Brazilian oil for Brazilian workers

With the recent corruption scandal in Petrobras, foreign investors seek to profit off of Brazilian oil. While former president Cardoso was much more aggressive and vocal about privatizing Petrobras, both Workers’ Party presidents Lula and Dilma have furthered the privatization. Workers must fight against all forces behind the privatization of Petrobras and build a movement for a 100% state-owned Petrobras, managed by workers. This is the only way Brazilian oil will help build badly-needed infrastructure and serve the people.
