Chair of Foreign Affairs Committee expresses support for Brazilian people

11 January 2023

Chair of the Foreign Affairs Committee, Alicia Kearns MP, said:

“On behalf of the Foreign Affairs Committee, I want to express our support for the people of Brazil following the storming of their Supreme Court and Congressional buildings.

The Committee was deeply disappointed to watch this inexcusable and cowardly assault on democracy. It is vital that the democratic will of the Brazilian people is respected.

The institutions and principles that underpin a democratic system are vulnerable to attack, from both external and internal actors. They should never be taken for granted.

We stand alongside other parliaments across the world in condemning all acts of violence and force and call for a peaceful resolution.”
