CONIC REJECTS INCENTIVES TO CELEBRATE THE MILITARY COUP OF 1964

We express our total rejection of any attitude that encourages celebrations alluding to the 1964 coup – a period marked by censorship and systematic violation of human rights.

We need to remember the innumerable lives of women, men, whites, blacks and Indigenous people, rich and poor, interrupted by defending democracy and equality. Lives that must be respected; memories that cannot be degraded in the name of ideologies. We must also remember the many victims who, abused by torture, still suffer the consequences and the   effects of the Military Dictatorship.

The CONIC agrees with the Federal Public Prosecutor’s Office (MPF), which also notes that such positions sound “as a promotion for the practice of mass atrocities and, therefore, deserve social and political repudiation, without prejudice to legal repercussions.”
