Brazil´s newly elected president, Jair Bolsonaro announced on November 1, 2018 his will to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of the State of Israel and to move the Brazilian embassy there.
CSP-Conlutas Communication Workgroup
On top of following President Trump international agenda, Bolsonaro wants to strengthen his links with both Zionist Christian fundamentalists and Brazilian and Israeli Arms industry.
The Palestinian-Brazilian journalist Soraya Misleh points out that Brazil is already one of the main importers of Israeli weapons and security systems which are responsible not only for the deaths of Palestinians but also for Brazilians, especially Black young people.
CSP-Conlutas leadership met at the same day and passed a motion of rejection against this decision which reads:
“CSP-Conlutas, a Brazilian labor and people’s federation, repudiates the announcement by elected president Jair Bolsonaro of Brazilian embassy transfer from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
That transfer implies into denial of Palestinian people historical rights to their lands including Jerusalem, endorsing all policies of apartheid and ethnic cleansing carried out by the racist Israeli State for 70 years.
Bolsonaro not only despises both the rights of an oppressed people for self-determination and human rights altogether but also shows his complete submission to president Donald Trump who remained isolated internationally in his announcement of American embassy transfer to Jerusalem.
CSP-Conlutas calls all workers, people’s and democratic organizations to take a stand against the transfer of the Brazilian embassy to Jerusalém in solidarity with the Palestinian people!
Longlive The Struggle Of The Palestinian People!
Longlive The International Solidarity Among the Working Classes and the Oppressed Peoples!”
