RIO DE JANEIRO, August 31 /TASS/. Dilma Rousseff, Brazil’s voted out president, has called on her supporters to fight against her impeachment.
"I am urging those who voted for me at the elections: ‘Do not give up your struggle’. I am calling on all of you to fight for the restoration of democracy," Rousseff said in her speech in the Brazilian capital. Once again, she described the impeachment as a state coup.
"This decision will go down in history as one of the greatest injustices. We are going to use all possible channels to challenge it," Rousseff stressed.
She added that 61 senators had assumed the right to change the will of 54.5 million Brazilian voters.
Rousseff’s supporters are going to challenge the impeachment decision at the Supreme Federal Court. They have prepared two appeals: the first appeal mentions procedural violations; the second says there are no grounds for Rousseff’s impeachment.
