Brazil Agrees Impunity Will Not End Without Three-Branches Joint Effort

Human rights organizations released this Thursday, February 9, one of the most complete report about the Brazilian human rights situation in 2005. To write the document, they joined to create the Brazilian Platform of Human, Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (Platform DhESCA Brazil).

Investigations indicate that the country lacks the joint effort between the Executive, Legislative and Judicial branches. They affirm that human rights violations won’t be avoided or punished without each branch playing its role.

The report coordinator, Maria Elena Rodriguez, agrees that a unified effort of the Brazilian State is necessary. In her opinion, human rights are not yet a central issue of political programs.

The organizations’ reports are gathered in the book "National Reports on Economic, Social, Cultural, and Environmental Rights". The project was financed by the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) and by foreign agencies.

Rodriguez explains that Brazil is internationally considered a model for other countries. She singled out the country’s "National Human Rights Plan" and the "Statute of Children and Adolescents."

    Therefore Brazilian Three Branches….
    ….decided that it is too complicated to change something !
    Why change something that worked so well for them in the last 200 years ?

    Or….why fix something that is not broken ?
