President Temer announced that 57 public assets will be available for privatization among them Eletrobras, a public company responsible for the generation of 32% of all electric energy in Brazil.
14 airports, 15 harbours, 11 high-voltage transmission lines and even the “casa da moeda” which is responsible for printing Brazilian currency and passports, shall be privatized.

 

Professor Ildo Sauer from Sao Paulo state university “USP” criticized eventual Eletrobras privatization since previous ones brought no relief to public debt, energy bills got higher and rationing was established.

 

CSP-Conlutas announced its opposition to the whole plan of privatizations and will address the issue with working class organizations in order to fight back.
