The Secretary of the Inter-american Commission on Human Rights, the Mexican Emilio Alvarez said to the newspaper O Estado de Sao Paulo in Brazil, that Brazil issued a message stating that they don’t want to explode the system anymore, when they expressed their satisfaction with the Commission. “It was said in public and that is a valuable signal for us.”
One of the reforms is aimed towards the precautionary measures issued by IACHR and which concerned Brazil. In 2011 the international body issued a precautionary measure against the Brazilian government to stop the construction of a state hydroelectric project, which had affected some indigenous communities in the Amazon.
But the opening session of the Inter American Commission to alter their constitutions made the governments of Brasilia and La Paz “to be very pleased,” according to the newspaper.
Brazil has a very important role in the American hemisphere. Not only for its geographical location but for its political and economic strength. This strength could unite the votes of several states in Latin America and the Caribbean, which could be critical to detain the attempts of the regimes of Ecuador, Venezuela and Nicaragua, to change the Inter American System of Human Rights, added the newspaper O Estado Sao Paulo in Brazil.
