On June 12, ACT Alliance promoted the event "Upholding the Rule of Law in Brazil", in the Ecumenical Center, in Switzerland. Pastor Ariovaldo Ramos, the coordinator of the Front of Evangelicals for the Rule of Law, shared his experiences in defence of democracy in Brazil.
"The event allowed participants to understand better the recent events in Brazil that have led to democratic backslide and to the breach of the rule of law", said ACT General Secretary Rudelmar Bueno de Faria.
According to Rudelmar, the event facilitated participants to be able to understand similar situations in other countries and regions, where the rule of law has been challenged by conservative forces that do not promote life, inclusion and justice. "The event also shed light to the prophetic perspectives of churches to engage in political processes that have implications on the lives of the most vulnerable", concluded the ACT General Secretary.
