Brazil

As recently many hate crimes and agressions against gender minorities, social leaders and supporters of progressive forces have been comitted in Brazil (in the North of the country there is a letal victim of this) by people exercising hate and violence encouraged by Bolsonaro public speaches and people linked to him about forbidding social activism, supporting the military dictatorship as well as torture, a worrying intolerance climate in the population  was created.

Apoiadores de Bolsonaro realizaram pelo menos 50 ataques em todo o país:

Levantamento inédito contabilizou relatos de agressões e ameaças contra pessoas em 18 estados e no DF nos últimos dez dias; 6 apoiadores do candidato do PSL também foram agredidos

For this reasons, SIGTUR decided to launch a public declaration asking for peace, defense of democracy and human rights in Brazil:

SIGTUR Declaration of Solidarity

The Federal Police and Judge Sergio Moro, who is presently on vacation in Portugal, failed to comply with a decision of the Federal Court of the 4th region that determined the immediate release of President Lula.
July 8, 2018 marked a further development of the current legal / media / parliamentary coup d’etat  to which our country is subject. 
 
Both, the Federal Police and Judge Sergio Moro, who is presently on vacation in Portugal, failed to comply with a decision of the Federal Court of the 4th region that determined the immediate release of President Lula.
 
At this moment the legal situation of President Lula is of freedom determined by the Federal Court, but his release was curtailed by contempt of the Federal Police and sectors of the Brazilian judiciary that refused to comply with the decision, thus keeping Brazilian former president in a condition of unlawful arrest. 
 
President Lula is now considered a victim of political persecution, which caused the International Human Rights Foundation to grant Lula a status of "prisoner of conscience in arbitrary detention”.
 
The current moment demands even more public reprimand and international solidarity actions so that we can guarantee Lula's freedom as soon as possible and his right to run in the coming presidential elections in Brazil.
 
Brazilians have placed him as the favorite candidate with greatest popular support.
