Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
And just now has a President who has roots in 'Marxist urban guerrilla groups'. Sounds like a tough lady. From Wiki:
She became a socialist during her youth, and following the 1964 coup d'état joined various left-wing and Marxist urban guerrilla groups that fought against the military dictatorship. Rousseff was eventually captured and jailed between 1970 and 1972, where she was reportedly tortured.
