Brazilian Ufology Manifesto

[Translation by Eduardo Rado]

Bras=EDlia (DF), May 20th, 2005

To the
Commander of the Brazilian Air Force,
Air Brigadier Luis Carlos da Silva Bueno,
Bras=EDlia (DF)                                                             =

The Brazilian Ufological Community, represented by individual
ufologists as well as by research groups, investigators,
scholars, and people interested in Ufology who undersigned the
document prepared for this purpose, expresses its opinion by
means of this document prepared under the coordination of
Revista UFO in order to address Brazilian authorities
represented herein by the eminent President of Brazil and the
eminent Commander of the Air Force, to present the following:

(1) It is widely known that the UFO Phenomenon, noticed with the
constant visits of spacecraft to our planet Earth, is genuine,
real, and consistent, and so is independently confirmed by civil
ufologists, as well as by military authorities worldwide for
more than 50 years.

(2) The Phenomenon had already had its origin sufficiently
identified as far from our planetary borders. The spacecraft
which so insistently visit our planet come from other
civilizations, perhaps technologically more advanced than ours,
and inhabit the same universe we do, although we do not know
their worlds and origins.

(3) Such civilizations are in a clear and unquestionable process
of continuous approach to Earth and to our planetary society
and, by acting this way in its maneuvers and activities, in most
cases do not show any hostility to us.

(4) It is clear that visits from such non-terrestrial
civilizations to our planet are gradually increasing over the
last years, according to domestic and international statistics,
both in number and intensity, consisting of something which
requires legitimate attention.

(5) Considering all this, the establishment of an official
program for acknowledgement, information, research, and public
disclosure of the subject is urgent, in order to clarify to all
Brazilians the undeniable and ever increasing extraterrestrial
presence in our planet Earth.

Thus, considering measures publicly adopted in different moments
of our History by countries like Chile, Belgium, Spain, France,
Uruguay, and China, which already acknowledged the seriousness
and urgency of the problem, we respectfully recommend the
Command of the Air Force of the Federative Republic of Brazil,
or any of its bodies, from now on, to prepare an appropriate
policy to discuss this issue in the necessary environments,
formats, and levels.

The Brazilian Ufological Community, in the name of all
undersigned participants of the aforementioned document, with
full support of the worldwide ufological community, wants to
voluntarily offer its knowledge, efforts, and dedication in
order to make this proposal a reality so that we have the
immediate acknowledgement of the UFO Phenomenon.

Thus, as a foundation stone in this process, which is to be the
symbol of a positive action from our authorities, the Brazilian
Ufological Community respectfully asks the Command of the Air
Force to disclose its files concerning at least three specific
episodes, which are specifically significant about the presence
of unidentified flying objects in our Territory:

(a) The Operation Prato, carried out by the I Regional Air
Command (COMAR) of Bel=E9m (PA), from September to December of
1977, which produced a bulky file with more than 500 pictures
and several movies about UFO maneuvers in the Amazon region, as
confirmed by Colonel Uyrang=EA Bol=EDvar Soares de Hollanda Lima.

(b) The mass ufological wave occurred in May 1986 over the
states of Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo, among others, when more
than 20 unidentified flying objects were observed, detected by
radars, and persecuted by jets of the Brazilian Air Force (FAB),
as informed by the then minister of Air Force himself, air
brigadier Oct=E1vio Moreira Lima.

(c) The Varginha Case, happened in that city in the state of
Minas Gerais on May 20th, 1996, in which members of the
Brazilian Armed Forces, by means of the School of Sergeants of
the Arms (EsSA), and members of the local corporation of the
Fire Brigade captured at least two beings of non-terrestrial
origin, according to abundant documentation obtained by
ufologists and testimonials spontaneously provided by members of
the military bodies which took part in the capture, treatment,
and removal of the creatures.

Being absolutely aware that Brazilian civil and military
authorities have never neglected the situation which has been
monitored with care and attention throughout last decades, and
on behalf of the Brazilian National Security, we consider that
the measures aforementioned are to establish the beginning of a
prosperous and profitable partnership.
