Luminate condemns the anti-democratic attacks in Brazil on Sunday, January 8th. Democracy is essential to building more just societies and must be protected.
The use of violence in the riots in Brasília, including against journalists, is deplorable. Those who enabled and perpetrated these unlawful actions must be held accountable.
Luminate stands in solidarity with the journalists, civil society organisations, and all those who are working to protect the civic and political spaces in Brazil and enable healthy public debate based on fact.
We are committed to ensuring that everyone, especially those who are underrepresented, has the information, rights, and power to influence the decisions that shape Brazilian society.
