Here in Curitiba we also held a demo with about a thousand people. It started at
as a march at the Federal University and then converged to the traditional spot
for rallies which is here known as Boca Maldit. An animated mixture of different
church representatives as well as radical political parties were present. For
Curitiba, an usually difficult place to get people mobilized, it was fairly
good, even though the working masses were not there!
