Rousseff: I'm a victim of a judicial farce, political farce

Dilma Rousseff describes herself as a "victim of a judicial farce, a political farce," but vows to "carry on."

"Destiny has always thrown several challenges at me. Great challenges. Some of them seemed unbearable. However I was able to overcome them," she says.

"I have suffered torture ... and now I suffer once again, from the pain of injustice, she adds, hours after an impeachment vote against her in the Senate.

She ends her address to the nation by calling on Brazilians "to say no to the coup."
