  • Portuguese
The politicization of spaces has become an increasingly recurrent activity for Brazilians, as the depoliticization of everyday life has contributed to the genocidal policy implemented by the government. Being a young Brazilian worker seeking to materialize your dreams is to constantly face the oppressions that surround our existence. It is from this place of deprivation that the need arises to politicize the field of work itself, in the expectation of producing new fair and egalitarian labor arrangements. In this presentation, some oppressions that permeate the production of typographies will be observed, identifying causes, consequences and possible remedies.
