disarmament in BrazilVeja 1925: "7 reasons to vote NO".
On October 23rd, Brazilians shall vote in a referendum about disarmament.
The question to be answered is "Shall the commerce of weapon and ammunition be prohibited in Brazil?".
Veja was the first (and so far, only) big media source to defend the vote for NO. The magazine cites statistics and other juridical reasons to defend the idea that the prohibition would bring more harms than benefits to Brazilian society.

Época also brings a report about the disarmament, with the title "Understand it, before voting". The magazines lists the pros and cons of each option, without taking a clear position.

IstoÉ brings a report about "The Drama of the First Job". The magazine describes how young workers are having more and more trouble to find their first jobs.
