The goal of the "soft coup" in Brazil

Emir Sader, El asalto al poder en Brasil Pâgina/12 30.05.2016 on the goals of the "soft coup" that just ousted the elected gobernment of Dilma Rousseff of the Workers' Party (PT) in Brazil:
La cuestión de fondo al remover los gobiernos del PT es el restablecimiento del modelo neoliberal en Brasil, como ocurre en Argentina.

[The basic question in removing the governments of the PT is the reestablishment of the neoliberal model in Brazil, as has occurred in Argentina.]
At least in Argentina, this was accomplished through the normal democratic process, not by an illegitimate overturning of election results.
