We are a group of jurists, lawyers, law scholars and collaborators from Brazil engaged in stopping a totalitarian political party’s (PT) attempt to return to power and once again endanger our Republic and our democratic values. PT is a party whose sole objective is to occupy our government and institutions in order to perpetuate its rule over our nation by eroding the foundations of our Republic, our society and its values, causing suffering, poverty and misery to our people . 

THE MANIFESTO

Jurists, lawyers and law scholars against corruption and in defense of Brazilian Institutions and Democracy

The members of the Brazilian legal community, signatories of this document, come forward to express their commitment to democratic values, the stability of our country’s institutions, the rule of law, the sovereignty of the 1988 Federal Constitution and our Republic.

In recent years, Brazil has gone through the worst economic crisis in its history, caused by successive catastrophic and criminal administrations by one political party – PT (Partido dos Trabalhadores or Workers Party) – an extremist left-wing organization that put its totalitarian goals ahead of the wellbeing and safety of our people. During its 13 years’ rule – spanning the presidencies of Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva (2002-2010) and Dilma Rousseff (2010-2016) – PT has implemented and commanded the largest and most pervasive corruption scheme in worlds history. Lula da Silva is now serving a 12 years’ prison sentence after being convicted of crimes of corruption and money laundering. He still is PTs de-facto leader and ultimate decision maker and currently rules the party from a jail cell in Curitiba, despite being a convicted felon that still awaits trial on 8 other cases of criminal conduct. His successor, Dilma Rousseff, was impeached by the Brazilian Congress in 2016 for fiscal crimes and for ilegal manipulation of the government budget to favor her re-election in 2014.

While in office, PT used its grasp on Brazil’s government to illegally enrich the party’s leaders, buy political influence through corruption schemes, nominate partisan and compromised public officials to all spheres of government and to use taxpayers’ money to propel and foster anti-democratic foreign regimes aligned with PTs totalitarian plans for our nation.

It is urgent for Brazilians to restore the morality in our politics, to guarantee the basic fundamental rights of our citizens to diversity of opinion and thought, freedom of speech, safety and most of all, equal legal rights independent of race, creed, political orientation, gender, origin, wealth or any other form of categorization. The diversity of our people should not be exploited for political goals or to foster internal division or political warfare between our citizens. We need to restore the principle of meritocracy in our government administration and institutions and exonerate politically oriented appointees who were put in place to serve the ambitions of a party, not the needs of a nation. We also urge for the end of the ideologically motivated witch-hunts that have been taking place inside our government and judicial institutions.

Brazil is now facing a crossroads in its history, the second round of the presidential elections is looming large on the 27th of October, 2018. On one side, we have Jair Bolsonaro, from PSL party, winner of the first-round with 46% of the votes and on the other, Fernando Haddad, from PT, runner up with 29%.

All the signatories of this document understand that the best way forward for Brazil to uphold the aforementioned values and principles, so dear to our country and its people is to elect Jair Bolsonaro our president, as the candidate has demonstrated its commitment to democracy, to our Republic, to the sovereign will of our people and to our constitutional legal framework, within which our political and judicial institutions can operate properly and independent from party politics or ideological biases.

We reiterate our repudiation of the corruption and divisive politics that have plagued our nation in recent times. Meanwhile we reaffirm the importance of the dialogue between all segments of society, the commitment to Brazil’s development, to the rule of law and most of all, to the sovereign will of our people, expressed through popular vote.
