Progress often means taking several steps back before you reach your destination.  But today Brasil has taken a huge backward step and I am afraid this step is a perilous one.

By stating its intent not to review and prosecute previous acts of torture perpetrated by government officials and employees, Brasil is once again offering carte-blanche to the many very corrupt officials who view this as permission to continue the Human Rights abuses.  I am very disappointed…but will continue to battle and hope you will share my effort and sign the petition to put an end to torture in Brasil.
