Brazil's leftist icon Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva walked free from jail Friday after a year and a half behind bars for corruption following a court ruling that could release thousands of convicts. In an impassioned address in a sometimes hoarse voice, Lula vowed to keep fighting for poor people and denounced the economic policies of the current right-wing president, Jair Bolsonaro. 'People are hungrier, they have no jobs, people work for Uber or delivering pizzas on a bike,' Lula said in remarks sometimes drowned out by cheers from the crowd and fireworks overhead.
