Judges for Democracy: Open Letter to the International Community


The Brazilian people are being targeted by a death policy

While most of the world adopts protection measures for their
populations, promoting vaccinations, imposing social distancing,
providing minimum financial support and running campaigns to
reinforce the importance of wearing masks and using hand sanitizer,
the President of Brazil does the exact opposite. He incentivizes
agglomerations, interferes with the purchase and distribution of
vaccines, questions the use of face masks as a measure to prevent
contamination, incentivizes the use of medication not recommended
by robust studies already published in the scientific community. He
continues to promote a climate of persecution and embarrassment
for Brazilian researchers and institutions that pursue, above all else,
the scientific knowledge necessary to confront the serious problems
of this pandemic.

Institutionally, the Federal Government still interferes with
the governors and mayors attempting to take any protective
measures against the dissemination of the virus, while aware that the
health system in Brazil has begun to collapse.
