President Lula emphasized that the Brazilian government is willing to cooperate with the British government to lessen the pain of Jean Charles’ family. Lula affirmed Brazil’s confidence on UK’s government and Justice.

Before boarding the plane back to Brazil, Lula will talk to Jean Charles’ cousins at the British airport, according to the Ministry of Foreign Relations.

    TIME FOR CHANGE
    I agree these practices are barbarous but don’t you think Lula and this government could have a change of heart?

    Maybe just maybe, Brazil might change?
