After a setback and disagreements involving entities, the Federation of Industries of the State of São Paulo (Fiesp) released this Friday, 10, a manifesto in defense of democracy in Brazil. Entitled “The Square is of the Three Powers”, the text is signed by 247 associations, federations and unions and defends, among other things, that the independence and harmony between the Executive, Legislative and Judiciary is the “essence of the Republic”. Using the architecture of Praça dos Três Poderes, in Brasilia, as an example, the document states that the space “makes it clear that none of the buildings is superior in importance, none invades the limits of the others, one cannot do without the others”. “In short, harmony between them has to be the rule. This principle is clearly present in the federal Constitution, pillar of the country’s legal system”, says the manifesto.

The entities also claim that they see with “great concern the escalation of tension between public authorities” and highlight that the current moment, still facing the pandemic in Brazil, requires “serenity, dialogue, political peace, institutional stability and, above all, focus in urgent and necessary actions and measures” for Brazil. The manifesto also emphasizes that the message is not specific to any of the Powers, but “to all simultaneously, because the responsibility is joint”. “More than ever, the moment demands approximation and cooperation between the Legislative, Executive and Judiciary. It is necessary that each one act responsibly within the limits of their competence, obeying the precepts established in our Magna Carta. This is the desire of the Brazilian nation”, concludes the letter.
