São Paulo: Janaína Bueno, 25, who says she is a model and actress, was detained a little before 9:00 PM on Thursday (Mar. 8), just minutes before carrying out her plan to protest President George W. Bush’s visit to Brazil.

 

Wrapped in a Brazilian flag and wearing skimpy underwear with her breasts painted black, she waited on the corner of Arizona Street and Luiz Carlos Berrini Avenue for the passage of the motorcade taking Bush from the Cumbica airport in Guarulhos, Greater São Paulo, to the Hilton Hotel in the Southern Zone of São Paulo.

 

A military policeman suspected that Janaína was nude and asked her to take off the flag. Her nudity and the phrase "Out Bush" which was painted on her in Portuguese and English resulted in police charging her with obscene acts, which was registered at the Police Precinct 96. She was set free but had to sign a detailed account - a legal document used to register potentially offensive minor infractions.

 

"I was infuriated because São Paulo ground to a halt just to watch Bush pass," said Janaína. The model was helped by a friend, Adejane Cristina Ferreira, 26, who painted Janaína’s body in a parking lot bathroom on Arizona Street. "Woudn't you agree that if she had come normally, she would have just been one of the crowd?" asked Adejane. "She wanted her protest to be noticed."

 

With the help of lawyer Alexandre Castanha, Janaína was allowed to leave the station a little more than an hour after being detained. According to Castanha, the one who committed an irregularity was the policeman that demanded she take off the flag that covered her body. The young woman, who said she works on a TV comedy show, asserted that she would try to repeat her protest. "I wanted no one to see my body. … Only Bush."

A jovem Janaína Bueno, de 25 anos, que se apresentou como modelo e atriz, foi detida pouco antes das 21h desta quinta-feira (8), minutos antes de concretizar o plano de protestar contra a visita do presidente George W. Bush ao Brasil.

 

Enrolada em uma bandeira brasileira e vestida com uma pequena calcinha e com os seios pintados de preto, ela aguardava a passagem da comitiva que levava Bush do Aeroporto de Cumbica, em Guarulhos, na Grande São Paulo, para o Hotel Hilton, na Zona Sul de São Paulo, na esquina da Rua Arizona com a Avenida Luiz Carlos Berrini.

 

Um policial militar suspeitou que Janaína estivesse nua e pediu para que ela tirasse a bandeira. A frase "fora Bush", em português e inglês, e a nudez encoberta pela tinta terminaram em um Boletim de Ocorrência por ato obsceno, registrado no 96º DP. Ela foi liberada, mas teve que assinar um termo circunstanciado - expediente legal utilizado para registro de infrações de menor potencial ofensivo. 

 

"Fiquei indignada porque São Paulo parou para ver o Bush passar", afirmou Janaína. A modelo contou com a ajuda da amiga Adejane Cristina Ferreira, de 26 anos, que fez a pintura no corpo de Janaina no banheiro de um estacionamento da Rua Arizona. "Você concorda que se ela (Janaína) viesse normalmente, ela seria apenas mais uma?", disse Adejane. "Ela queria fazer um protesto para ser vista."

 

Com a ajuda do advogado Alexandre Castanha, Janaína foi liberada da delegacia pouco mais de uma hora depois de ser detida. Segundo Castanha, quem cometeu a irregularidade foi o policial que exigiu que ela retirasse a bandeira que cobria seu corpo. A jovem, que diz trabalhar em um programa de humor na televisão, afirmou que ainda vai tentar repetir o protesto. "Não queria que ninguém visse meu corpo. o Bush."
