Focus of political struggle should be the defense of sovereignty, says Lula
“Raduan has synthesized very well what the president wants to be the watchword of all Brazilian Democrats: to fight with every possible means to defend national sovereignty, whether material, pre-salt, Embraer or humanistic. ”Said writer Fernando Morais, while reporting his meeting and writer Raduan Nassar with former president

It must be acknowledged that an encounter between a biographer, a writer, and a popular leader held in political prison for a crime he never committed was unlikely to happen by chance. It must also be admitted that only someone of Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva ‘s greatness would motivate the visit of leading names in national culture such as biographer Fernando Morais and writer Raduan Nassar .
Both had already met the former president in the unfair prison, but separately. On Thursday (8), however, they joined the Federal Police headquarters with an even greater mission: to deliver to Lula the letter of representatives of the Association of Judges for Democracy (AJD) in defense of their immediate release and for the restoration of Brazilian democracy . .
With the literary verve that consecrated him, Morais philosophizes about the task received from the judges and judges who sign the document – written before the intimidating attempt to transfer Lulafrom Curitiba to São Paulo . “Lula was very touched by the letter. Nietzsche and Paulo Coelho said that there are no coincidences. Not by chance this letter was delivered by me and Raduan the next day of a new violence against Lula (…) We fulfill with great honor and joy the task that you ( juristsand judges ) gave us ”, explains the biographer, whose next The book will be precisely about Lula’s two political prisons in 1980 and the current one.
Known for his concise frank speech, Raduan went straight to the point: “I found the president extraordinarily determined to fight for Brazil’s sovereignty. Free squid ASAP! Lula is a politically arrested president and this is unbearable for all of us. ”
The struggle for national sovereignty, by the way, is one of Lula’s most avid wishes and has the unconditional support of Fernando Morais . “Raduan has synthesized very well what the president wants to be the watchword of all Brazilian Democrats: to fight with every possible means to defend national sovereignty, whether material, pre-salt , Embraer or humanistic. ”Reiterates the writer, for whom the support of jurists is the most perfect“ translation to Brazil of which there are judges and judges ”.
