    US congress members denounce “assault on democracy and human rights in Brazil”

    The letter, also signed by Senator Bernie Sanders, notes that Lula “was imprisoned following a highly questionable and politicized judicial process”

    In a letter to Brazilian Ambassador in Washington Sergio Silva do Amaral, 29 members of the United States Congress voiced their concerns about “an intensifying assault on democracy and human rights in Brazil,” particularly the incarceration of former president Lula da Silva and the assassination of Rio de Janeiro city councilor Marielle Franco.
