SAO PAULO (Reuters) - Brazil’s former President Dilma Rousseff pledged on Wednesday to appeal her impeachment, which she called a parliamentary coup, and called on supporters to fight a conservative agenda empowered by her dismissal.

“Right now I will not say goodbye to you. I am certain I can say, ‘See you soon,’” she told supporters in Brasilia.
