Ten should be the minimum.
The IOC should be pushing this case and demand of Brasil that they release or prosecute Hickey as having one of their members on bail is an intolerable position to be in.

Shane Ross should demand of IOC to settle this issue.

There is currently a general strike underway against Bolsonaro's regime in Brazil.

Liberdade, Socialismo e Revolução - LSR - (sister party of the Socialist Party in Brazil) is playing an active role in organising the general strike.

I see that Lula, ex-President of Brazil, has been freed from prison while his appeal goes through the courts.

This is on foot of a constitutional court order that has freed several thousand prisoners in a similar situation.

I wonder whether this will have any effect on last year's court decision to prohibit Lula from running in last year's presidential elections?
Certainly among his supporters, it will strengthen the belief that he was imprisoned to stop him from running against Bolsonaro - using legal process that has become known as lawfare.

Leaders around the world congratulate Lula on him being freed.

Among them are politicians such as Bernie Sanders, Jeremy Corbyn, Cristina Kirchner, Pepe Mújica, François Hollande, Anne Hidalgo, as well as Nobel Peace Prizewinners Kailash Satyarthi, Adolfo Pérez Esquivel, and Barcelona's Mayor, Ada Colau.

It is generally accepted that he would have beaten Bolsonaro in the elections, which many believe is why he was imprisoned.

At the start of his regime, Bolsonaro, who won with 55% of the vote, had 20% who saw him as "Bad or Awful", 40% as "Good or Great", with 40% as Neutral or Don't Know.

Now those numbers are 34%, 31%, and 35% . Like Trump, the shine has worn off, though some still hold out hopes, and no doubt he has his fanatical supporters. He also has millions of bankers' and industrialists' money behind him.

It is good that Lula can provide a focus for the Brazilian Opposition, something lacking in the US.

Their culture is interesting. Every Brazilian I’ve met believes in Jesus , yet the women are fairly easy so they don’t allow religion dictate their sexual behavior.
