UFOs in Brazil

(Before It's News)

Something absolutely extraordinary and unprecedented has hapened yesterday in Brazil.

For the first time in history a Ministry of Defense of a country has officially invited UFO researchers to discuss the UFO Phenomena, how to handle its investigation and the information it may come from it.

The meeting happened 3 pm yesterday at the Brazilian Ministry of Defense building, in Brasilia, the Federal Capital, and over 20 people took part of it.

On behalf of the minister of Defense, ambassador Celso Amorim, secretary Ari Matos Cardoso and his associates received the Brazilian Committee of UFO Researchers (CBU) members to discuss the subject.

Present at the gathering, that lasted some 75 minutes, were also several representatives from the Brazilian Air Force, Navy and Army, all subordinated to the Ministry of Defense in Brazil, and who were asked to fully comply with the ufologists' requests.

The meeting is a direct reply to the Iguassu Falls Letter, issued during the 4th World UFO Forum, that happened last December.

In the document, signed by nearly 30 speakers from over a dozen countries and some 600 people attending the conference, it is formally requested to the Ministry of Defense that all UFO secret archives are disclosed and an official committee for UFO investigations is created under the Brazilian Air Force.

It is on its way now!

An English version of the Letter is here:


The Iguassu Falls Letter is the latest step of the well-known and very well succeeded campaign “UFOs: Freedom of Information Now,” created by Brazilian Committee of UFO Researchers (CBU) and that has forced the Brazilian Government to open approximately 4,5 thousand pages of previously classified UFO documents.

I have been posting much news about it in the last 5 years. It is a trajectory of success of the Brazilian Ufology towards freedom of info.

The documents released are here: www.ufo.com.br/documentos

While we are still producing texts to announce this fantastic achievement to the entire Brazilian and World UFO Communities, please read the official note below, that was published at the very website of the Brazilian Ministry of Defense, another clear sign that the topic is being fully recognized as serious by our authorities.

I am very happy to announce this, as it is the result of my colleagues and I efforts at the Brazilian Committee of UFO Researchers (CBU). It has been our strategies in the last years, through the above mentioned campaign, that resulted in this special moment for us all.
