Dia da Juventude Constitucionalista
(Constitutionalist Youth). 23 May 1932 is an important day in Brazilian history. Four students (Martins, Miragaia, Dráusio and Camargo) were killed in an confrontation with the police in São Paulo. They took part in a protest against the dictatorship of President Getúlio Vargas. The death of the four students ignited a revolt (by approximately 100 thousand people) against the dictatorship. This movement is called the MMDC movement, referring to the first letters of the students’ names. They protested for a new constitutional law. When Vargas frustrated the reform process, a civil war was started. Troops formed from the middle class battled in various Brazilian states, but didn’t managed to gain national support. About six months later, the remaining troops surrendered to the Federal Army. An obelisk in Ibirapuera Park in São Paulo commemorates the ‘Soldados de 32’.
