Legislature candidates sign a letter of commitment to science

São Paulo – The Brazilian Society for the Advancement of Science (SBPC) presented a Document with suggestions from the scientific community for the Legislature’s candidates in the October elections. The text contains measures and commitments to advance the science, technology, innovation, education and democracy agendas. By the end of Thursday afternoon (25), the commitment had been signed by 36 candidates for a seat in the Senate, House of Representatives or legislatures.

The proposals were formulated by professionals from various fields based on a series of meetings held in recent months. The series was called “Project for a New Brazil”. The Subsidiary Body on Implementation (SBPC) held 13 of these conferences before consolidating the list of proposals on the topics. The expectation is to rebuild the sector, after the current period of dismantling promoted by Jair Bolsonaro’s government.

“Today, the continuation of important scientific research and the training of new researchers is threatened. On the other hand, various threats to human rights take into account any plan for the economic and social advancement of the country, the entity notes.

In addition to the letter of commitment, SBPC has also launched the website “2022 Election Observatory‘, to follow up on the October dispute.

Commitment to science

All proposals are guided, at the outset, by “a relentless defense of the democratic rule of law.” Scholars assert that the state will only be able to sustainably grow and reach a high level of development based on democratic stability. The document criticizes President Bolsonaro, who has been amplifying authoritarian rhetoric by attacking the electoral system.
