Associação Brasileira de Ciência Política (ABCP) divulga manifesto em defesa dos princípios democráticos
The Brazilian Association of Political Science (ABCP) brings together political scientists from different political and ideological positions.
The diversity that constitutes our community is an institutional asset of which we are proud.
In this grave moment of national political life we have come together in defense of democracy as a greater value and have assumed a public position in defense of our institutions.
What is at stake in this election goes beyond political-partisan projects and reaches the core of our democracy and the constitutional values assumed in 1988. When voices and attitudes argue against civil and political rights, relativize dictatorship and torture, incite violence against opponents, and threaten not to submit to the results of the ballot box, it is because we are facing the grave risk of rupture of the arduously constructed constitutional and democratic order over the last 30 years.
We call upon the community of Political Scientists to defend democracy and the basic liberal and social values inscribed in our Constitution.
And to the country we express our deep concern about our democratic future.
