Justice must be done so that such facts do not happen again, and that the entities of our country are not threats ”, declared the vice-president of Aprosoja-MT, Lucas Costa Beber.

The Parliamentary Front for Agriculture issues an official note: vandalism must be punished with the rigor of the law

The Agricultural Parliamentary Front informs that it is against any act of vandalism.

Inciting social and / or intersectoral animosity is what we least need at this time when Brazil is trying to save its growth, its creation of jobs and income, to fight against hunger and poverty, amplified by the global pandemic.

It should be noted that agriculture has the best economic and social indicators in the country, with the largest generation of new jobs in the last 10 years.

The division of Brazil does not contribute to the elaboration of solutions and policies which are urgently to be built, with a view to a better future, in dialogue and security.

We are all Brazilian. We only want one Brazil: with jobs and income, without hunger!

Rep. Sérgio Souza (MDB-PR)
President of the Parliamentary Front for Agriculture
