7.How you see the actual hardcore scene in Brasil?
We have one of the biggest scenne around the world. Lots of things are happend here in Brasl and not only in São Paulo or Rio De Janeiro and Minas Gerais.
I'm talking about all states. We have people workng hard and lots of bands , gigs , labels , web sites , distros , zines happend in othewrs plaeces of Brasil and it was great.
We have very old shool bands like RATOS DE PORÃO and AÇÃO DIRETA playing all of these years without never stoped and despite our bad economic situation
people here use criativity and dedication.
We have some specific places to play that are surviving for years and lots of bands are comming for the other countries around the workd and lots of new bands arise every day !
8.What you think about the actual political corruption?
Unfortunately this karma and carry this rotten culture that is rooted in our culture.
Our justice is flawed and impunity and laws deteriorated and old favor this practice.
In Brazil we have real thieves and criminals involved in politics and government and this has caused a bad measurements without the people and the
country as a whole.
I really hate all of them and I hate them and all their lies and practices and and is hard to catch them because they hide inside their own laws.
9.Plans in Ação Direta?
We have a new album now and we star to celebrate 25 yeras old with the band ! Our plas now ..... ROAD !
We wanna Work hard to promote the new album and play lots of gigs.
