Spoilers More than eleven million viewers paid tickets to watch Elite Squad 2 at the theatres, surpassing the record established by Avatar as the most successful movie in the history of Brazil and showing that a good screenplay, a good cast, good production values and thought-provoking topics still matter more than all the progresses in special effects. The first movie was a cultural phenomenon in Brazil, expectations were high and sequels usually disappoint. But this sequel not only lives up to the first movie — it transcends it. What we have here is a smarter movie that exchanges the favelas, the drug traffic-ridden slums, for luxurious public offices.
An Abolitionist Analyzes Slavery and Calls for a Break with the Past [For some years after passage of the Rio Branco Law that freed children born to slaves, the anti-slavery movement was nearly dormant. However, as it became clear that most children "freed' by the law remained de facto slaves, that one of the law's key creations, the emancipation fund, was freeing few persons, and that otherwise the plan to end slavery gradually was not achieving great results, a new group of anti-slavery leaders suddenly appeared to initiate an entirely new phase of the anti-slavery struggle.
Inthe young Pernambucan, Joaquim Nabuco, began making anti-slavery speeches in the Chamber of Deputies, and the following year, supported by a few colleagues, he introduced a bill to ban some of slavery's harsher features and to abolish it completely within ten years.
His ideas brusquely rejected in the Chamber, Nabuco then turned to propaganda, organizing the Brazilian Anti-Slavery Society in September,and publishing a short-lived monthly newsletter, 0 Abolicionista.
In that year journalists in Rio and other cities, notably the young mulatto Jose do Patrocinio, began to establish an abolitionist press, and newly formed emancipation clubs began holding regular meetings.
This outburst of anti-slavery activity aroused a powerful reaction' among slaveholders, and, owing in part to this angry response, the new movement quickly declined. By most anti-slavery clubs were inactive, and late that year Nabuco himself was defeated in a bid for reelection, after which he sailed for England into self-imposed exile.
It was during his residence abroad that Nabuco wrote his anti-slavery book, 0 Abolicionismo, from which this selection is drawn. In this work he brilliantly analyzed the effects of slavery upon Brazilian society and the nature of the abolition struggle.
This selection includes a penetrating examination of Brazilian slavery as it existed in and a final appeal to Brazilians to make an abrupt break with the past and to begin a new era of reform and progress.
University of Illinois Press,pp. Our propaganda has tried to spread to other countries the belief that the slaves were being freed in considerable numbers, and that the children of the slaves were being born entirely free.
Slave mortality is an item which never appears in those fraudulent statistics, behind which is the philosophy that a lie spread abroad allows the government to do nothing at home and to abandon the slaves to their fate.
The record of manumissions-highly creditable to Brazil--dominates the official picture and obscures slave mortality, while crimes against slaves, the number of Africans still in bondage, the hunting down of fugitive blacks, the fluctuating price of human flesh, the rearing of ingenuos [children born to slaves technically freed by the Rio Branco law] in slavery, the utter sameness of our rural prisons, and everything unbecoming, humiliating, and bad for the government are all carefully suppressed.
In any issue of any major Brazilian paper-with the exception, I understand, of those of Bahia, where the press of the capital ceased the publication of slave advertisements--one would find, in effect, the following kinds of information which describe completely the present condition of the slaves: One finds, finally, repeated declarations that slavery among us is a very mild and pleasant condition for the slave, better for him, in fact, than for the master, a situation so fortunate, according to these descriptions, that one begins to suspect that, if slaves were asked, they would be found to prefer slavery to freedom; which merely proves that newspapers and articles are not written by slaves or by persons who for one moment have imagined themselves-in their condition.
The provisions of our Black Code are very few. Slavery is not indentured servitude which imposes a certain number of specified responsibilities upon the servant. It is the possession, domination, sequestration of a human beinghis body, mind, physical forces, movements, all his activity-and it only ends with death.
How can we define in legal terms what the master can do with the slave and what the slave cannot do under the supervision of his owner? As a rule the master can do anything. If he wants to shut the slave up inside his house forever, he can do so.
If he wants to prevent him from establishing a family, he can do so. If the slave has a wife and children and the master desires that he neither see them nor speak to them, if he decides to order the son to whip the mother, if he wishes to usurp the daughter for immoral purposes, he can do so.
Imagine all the most extraordinary injuries which one man can inflict upon another without killing him, without separating him by sale from his wife and children under fifteen, and you will have what slavery is legally among us.
The House of Correction, in comparison with this other condition, is a paradise. Excluding thought of the crime of condemning an innocent person to imprisonment as an example to others-which is worse than the fate of the most unfortunate slave-there is no comparison between a system of fixed obligations, of dependence upon law and its administrators, and a system of proprietary subjection to a person who can be a madman or a barbarian.
To recapitulate, I will sketch in broad strokes what slavery is legally in Brazil in The present bondsmen, born before September 28,and today at least eleven and a half years' old, are slaves until they die, exactly like those of earlier generations.Oct 29, · Time may have stood still architecturally, but the tourist business is up to date, although little or no English -- or any other foreign language, for that matter -- is spoken except in the shops and the small, sparsely stocked tourist office, and even those are geared more toward the Brazilian traveler.
