Brazil: Urgent treatment of security bill approved

, Index number: AMR 19/4053/2021

On 20 April 2021, the Chamber of Deputies approved the requirement to process the bill nº 6.764/2002 on National Security Issues as an urgent matter and without public consultation, with 385 votes in favour and 57 against it. Despite this, the urgent action mobilized and brought together very important actors, social movements and organizations that will keep monitoring the next steps regarding the discussion of the law. We will continue to demand a public consultation, analysis and public debate around the impacts deriving from this bill.
