The Brazilian Space Agency (Portuguese: Agência Espacial Brasileira; AEB) is the civilian authority in Brazil responsible for the country's burgeoning space program. It operates a spaceport at Alcântara and a rocket launch site at Barreira do Inferno. The agency has given Brazil a leading role in space in Latin America and has made Brazil a valuable and dependable partner for cooperation in the International Space Station.
The Saudi-led coalition launched Brazilian-made cluster munition rockets that struck a farm in northern Yemen in late February 2017, wounding two boys. The coalition’s continued use of widely banned cluster munitions in Yemen shows callous disregard for civilian lives.
From 1964 to 1985 Brazil experienced the worst period in its history. Hundreds of civilian performers, artists, workers were arrested and tortured, for reasons unknown to this day, many died and never returned home. It was also in this scenario we saw the first artistic manifestations in Brazilian streets. It was the people using ink and art against repression. I hope the paint and art continue to be used to spread the beauty in our towns, but it never be used to rebut the bloodshed.Seguir
