Calls are made in Brazil to say 'enough' to Bolsonaro's government
Brasilia, Jan 25 (Prensa Latina) The Dom Paulo Evaristo Arns Commission for the Defense of Human Rights called on those truly committed to democracy and the right to life in Brazil to say 'enough' to the government of President Jair Bolsonaro.
According to an article published in the O Globo newspaper, the board, known as the Arns Commission, stressed that it is necessary to stop 'this misrule, which has caused so much damage to the lives of Brazilians and to our democracy.'
This was addressed directly to citizens, civil society organizations, political parties, business and religious groups and, above all, the fundamental institutions of the Republic, such as the National Congress, the Federal Supreme Court and the Attorney General of the Republic.
The Commission alerted about the actions, omissions and violations committed by Bolsonaro against the rights guaranteed by the Constitution that he swore to defend when he took office in January 2019, with the right to health among them.
Bolsonaro's denial of the seriousness of the Covid-19, encouraging crowds and the failure to comply with preventive measures (in addition to boycotting of the production and securing of the vaccine), are associated with the more than 217,000 deaths from the pandemic in Brazil.
'President Bolsonaro has been determined from the beginning of his government to deepen political polarization, dividing the country between friends and enemies,' an excerpt from the article reads.
Likewise, the commission questions the disastrous foreign policy of Foreign Minister Ernesto Araujo, of hostility towards several countries, which caused, among other acts, the delay in obtaining vaccines.
