About 300 businessmen, leaders and citizens from Minas Gerais signed a manifesto in defense of democracy. Called the ‘Second Mineiros Manifesto’, the virtual signing of the letter took place hours after the release of a text by Fiemg (Federation of Industries of the State of Minas Gerais), in which the entity attacks the STF (Supreme Federal Court) for inquiries that investigate fake news and threats to democracy in Brazil.

The document was conceived by the president of the Minas Gerais Business Association (ACMinas), José Anchieta da Silva. The purpose of the document, according to him, is to rebuild the country’s democracy.
The letter is inspired by a 1943 manifesto, also signed by miners, against the dictatorship imposed in Brazil by Getúlio Vargas. At the time, Minas Gerais became the national protagonist of democracy.
“A way of governing where Municipalities and States are permanent hostages of what the Brasília-based central government thinks and desires has already been revealed, and long ago, wrong. This centralism, which increases inequalities, has already imposed backwardness and misery on the entire Brazilian Nation”, says the manifesto.
