Repúdio à indicação de nova Presidência do IBGE

Banho de assento

A notícia da indicação de Paulo Rabello de Castro para a presidência do IBGE é extremamente preocupante. O indicado, amigo do presidente interino, é vinculado a interesses privados, em especial do mercado financeiro. Trata-se de diretor presidente da SR Rating e fundador da RC Consultores, empresas de consultoria financeira que elaboram projeções que são vendidas no mercado, utilizando, dentre outros, dados do IBGE.

As informações produzidas e disponibilizadas pelo IBGE são intensamente utilizadas em pesquisas no Brasil e no exterior – pesquisas de comparabilidade internacional – por sua reconhecida qualidade e excelência. Necessário lembrar que as pesquisas do IBGE sempre nos colocaram em igualdade de condições, sob o ponto de vista da qualidade e confiabilidade dos dados, com os pesquisadores dos países centrais.

Com mais de 220 publicações ao ano, o IBGE produz uma verdadeira radiografia do país, em sua diversidade de aspectos (econômicos, sociais, demográficos, políticos, geocientíficos) com dados…

Dutch racism, por Hein de Haas

(artigo publicado originalmente no blog: dia 20/03/2014)

Geert Wilders, the popular leader of the Dutch PVV (Freedom) Party, is well known for his anti-Islam and anti-immigrant viewpoints. Dutch Moroccans are his favourite target, who are systematically put down by Wilders as criminal, extremist, terrorist, and benefit scrounging untermenschen. 

The Dutch have now been debating for years whether Wilders’ public statements are racist or not (see here). To me, this is somehow puzzling, as what else can you call the stereotyping and scapegoating of entire population groups?Why this hesitance? Part of the explanation is that most mainstream Dutch politicians have become terrified of Wilders.They have even been taking over many of his viewpoints on immigration in  attempts to win back votes. The right-wing liberal VVD party, in particular, has done its best to copy PVV’s anti-immigration, anti-diversity (see here) and ‘law and order’ viewpoints.These strategies have failed, but have made Wilders’ viewpoints respectable.

They also avoid very harsh attacks against Wilders because they may need his party to form the next coalition government. After all, the PVV is now the biggest or second biggest party in national polls.

In other words, politicians are afraid to call Wilders a racist because he has become too powerful. Yesterday, he went one step further during a speech to celebrate his party’s victory in local elections in The Hague (see video)

– Wilders: “I ask you. Do you want, in this city, and in the Netherlands, more or fewer Moroccans”
– Audience: “Fewer, fewer, fewer…. ” (shouting)
– Wilders:  “Then we will fix this” (audience and Wilders laugh)

Innocent: no. Deliberate:yes. Racist: yes.

Yet once again, PM Rutte of the VVD party stated this week that he does not rule out the possibility of forming a next government with Geert Wilders, who already gave vital support to Rutte’s previous government.

To be honest, this makes me angry and scares the hell out of me. Not so much because of what Wilders says (racism is of all ages after all), but because he gets away with it (not in the legal, but in the moral sense), because mainstream politicians lack the moral compass, courage and self-confidence to go in the counter-attack, show solidarity and identify with fellow Dutch citizens of Moroccan origin or Islamic faith.

What we need is a Prime Minister who has the guts to say: “I am a Moroccan”. That would be real leadership. What we get is cowardice.

As my colleague Ann Singleton said on Twitter yesterday: “Shocking times across Europe – racist parties are again becoming respectable power brokers”. Cynical power politics apparently justify sacrificing any principle.  It is a dangerous slippery slope.
