Nor the time friend Nor the rude force/Can a dream erase ‘ ‘ Start this text with a stretch of ‘ ‘ Song of the New Mundo’ ‘ , of Beto Guedes and Ronaldo Bastos, in an attempt to keep alive the hope flame of that justice in relation to the murder (10/09/2001) of our Toninho of the PT is made, then legitimately elect mayor of Campinas. At the same time where she is beautiful, one is about a music that if relates with moments of world-wide commotion and gained dramatical connotation for the majority of all Brazilians. In the reality, music speaks of the murder of John Lennon (former-Beatles), fanatic crime, victim occurred in 1980. In 1985, it has even so not carried through still the dream to choose directly a president, after 21 years of Military dictatorship, good part of the Brazilians lived the euphoria at last to have a civilian to govern the country, Tancredo miner Snows. However, the president-elect for the Electoral College would be interned in the eve of the ownership, marked for 15 of March and would be hospitalized until its death in 21 of April. At the time, ‘ ‘ Song of the New Mundo’ ‘ it turned hymn the national commotion. Frustrated in 84, the dream of the direct elections if would become Real in 1989 for all Brazilians.
It was not accurately one democratic election, since the economic interests of media and had privileged candidates and harmed some, such and which already had occurred in state elections of 82. Of any form, it was a country reaprendendo to vote, to try to walk with the proper legs, under the slogan: ‘ ‘ Without masters, nor generais’ ‘ , at last the search of new airs of the democracy. In 2000, passed 20 years of the death of Lennon and 15 of the one of Tancredo, ‘ ‘ Song of the New Mundo’ ‘ perhaps only it persisted in the memory of some for the message of that if it does not have ahead to be omissive of the historical changes. Campinas had elect petista government in 1989 and would come back to place the PT in the power, choosing Antonio of the Coast Saints, ‘ ‘ Toninho of the PT’ ‘ , a paulistano architect, of dedicated life to most humble and of deep love to its State and the chosen city to study, to live and to form family: Campinas. Nothing less than 290,132 campineiros voters, 59.78% of the valid votes, had placed Toninho of the City hall. He was the militant mayor, with skill boy and dreams of young man who finally governed the city that as much loved. They had been only nine months, a gestation that if it transformed into tragic boarding, a life interrupted for a shot that made right the chest of Toninho and almost all the campineiros. A dull death, a victim of the public unreliability that is only aggravated in our State and that it again makes in them to think about ‘ ‘ Song of the New Mundo’ ‘ alerting in them that we do not have to lose the train of history.
