Europeans concentrated in south Brazil say they're sick and tired of paying taxes and getting nothing in return.
From The Washington Post:
RIO DE JANEIRO -- Hundreds of thousands of people in the south of Brazil have voted in an unofficial plebiscite to separate from South America's biggest nation and form their own country, organizers of the ballot said.
The results come on the back of the local elections, marked by widespread absenteeism and rejection of traditional politicians. Brazil is reeling from the controversial impeachment of President Dilma Rousseff this year and revelations that many members of her Workers' Party and its political allies were involved in a graft scandal at state-run oil company Petrobras.
Deucher, one of the intellectual leaders of the movement called The South Is My Country, cited citizens' frustration with corruption as a reason so many voted to leave Brazil.
According to government figures, in July, Bahia state in Brazil's northeast, which has a population of 15 million people, paid less than half the federal taxes of Rio Grande do Sul, in the south, which has a population of 11 million people.
There are also cultural differences between the regions. In some towns in the south, German is still spoken. A version of Germany's famous Oktoberfest beer festival is held every year in Blumenau, a city in the state of Santa Catarina.This is what it's like outside of south Brazil:
Brazil was just praised for its "diversity" during the Olympics -- where competitors were made to "literally swim in human crap" and visitors and Olympians alike were mugged and shot at.
As CNN reported, "minorities" officially became the majority in 2011.
They elected former Marxist guerrilla Dilma Rousseff to be their president. In just a few short years, she and her cronies managed to loot the country and drive it into the ground before she was finally impeached in August. The situation is so bad, there's serious movements like this where Europeans are looking to secede and others where they're seeking to bring back the monarchy.
