From: A. J. Gevaerd - (Revista UFO <aj.nul> Date: Sat, 25 Sep 2010 10:00:35 -0300 Archived: Sun, 26 Sep 2010 07:56:08 -0400 Subject: Brazil Releases New UFO Documents Brazil Releases New UFO Documents I am very glad to inform to the international UFO community that this week Brazilian government, through the Brazilian Air Force commander, lieutenant-brigadier Juniti Saito, has released a new pile of previously secret UFO documents, now covering the first decade of the new millennia, from 2000 to 2009. The country was the first in the world to publicly and officially admit the importance of the UFO Phenomena. As I informed here last August, Juniti Saito also gave a major step to openly recognize the UFO Phenomena as serious and worthy of immediate actions in Brazil by issuing a public statement, published in Brazil's official journal, called 'Diario Oficial da Uniao', regulating how UFO reports should be handled in the country, by whom and what destination should they have. The document was published August 10 and is oficial. The official act, named Portaria 551/GC3, of August 09, 2010, also indicated the Brazilian Aerospace Defense Command (COMDABRA) as responsible for receiving and cataloging the occurrences of UFOs. The records reported by personnel from the air traffic control system should be forwarded to the Aeronautics History Documentation Center (CENDOC), as determined by ordinance. The CENDOC, in turn, is indicated as responsible for filing copies of records sent and send the originals to the National Archives. I have also informed here previously that since Brazilian UFO disclosure started, a few years ago, a direct result of the campaign 'UFOs: Freedom of Information Now', the government has been releasing the files by decade. We had the documents for the 50s, 60s and 70s released last year. Early this year we had the documents for the 80s. On August 13th we had the files of the 90s and now the documents for the years 2000 to 2009. That campaign was initiated in 2004 by the Brazilian Committee of UFO Researchers (CBU), under my command, and through the Brazilian UFO Magazine. It is not known the amount of pages released this time, as the members of CBU haven't had access to the material, which will happen next week. So far near 5,000 pages have been disclosed, which is believed to be only a small tip of a big iceberg, still being kept secret. Because of that, CBU members intend to start new actions to open more files. The documents for the decades 50 to 90 can be found here, as a courtesy of the Brazilian UFO Magazine: www.ufo.com.br/documents Of special significance in the set of documents of the years 2000 to 2009 there are several cases involving UFOs pursuing civilian and military aircraft, as well as being detected by radar. A very interesting episode happened to a commercial jet of the Varig Airlines cargo department, followed by a UFO. The documents will soon be posted at the Brazilian UFO Magazine website for everyone to see. Details will follow. Of all, the over 5,000 pages already released by the Brazilian government, special attention goes to the documents of the 80s, in which pile there was a very interesting report of the 'Official UFO Night in Brazil', when 21 spherical objects, estimated 100 meters in diameter - according to military sources - literally jammed air traffic over the major Brazilian Airports, when 7 Mirage and F5 jets were scrambled to pursue them. The document 'Occurrence Report' in PDF file in Portuguese and in English are here: www.ufo.com.br/public/noite/Occurrence_Report_Original.pdf www.ufo.com.br/public/noite/Occurrence_Report_Translated.pdf In its Final Considerations section, the 'Occurrence Report' reads: "As a conclusion of the observed facts in almost all presentations, it is the opinion of this Command that the phenomenon is solid and reflects intelligence by its capacity to follow and sustain distance from the observers, as well as to fly in formation, and are not necessarily manned craft". Again, "the phenomenon is solid and reflects intelligence". The campaign UFOs: Freedom Of Information Now has clearly shown that civilian UFO researchers can make the difference. Unlike countries like England and France, for instance, where the disclosure happened as a result of administrative decisions, in Brazil it happened as a direct result of a civilian movement, promoted since 2004 by the Brazilian Committee of UFO Researchers (CBU), which I founded and of which I was the coordinator till last January. Now it is Under command of the geographer federal public servant Fernando Ramalho. The fact that Brazilian Air Force now recognizes the materiality of the UFO Phenomena has happened in great deal thanks to the pressure put over the military by the Brazilian UFO Magazine, through CBU. As the magazine editor, I have been successful in locating, convincing and interviewing some top military in Brazil, who went public about the subject and helped the making if the decisions, such as lieutenant-brigadier S=F3crates Monteiro, former minister of Brazilian Air Force S=F3crates Monteiro and others. Some of the astounding declarations made by these and other men can be read here: "All UFO Secrets Must Be Disclosed", says Brazilian Top Military: www.ufoupdateslist.com/2008/mar/m12-004.shtml Brazil's former Air Force Minister makes statements about UFOs: www.ufoupdateslist.com/2009/oct/m27-014.shtml Another Brazilian military officer reveals UFO investigation, observation and physical evidence: www.ufoupdateslist.com/2010/jul/m13-001.shtml Retired lieutenant-colonel discloses new revelations on Operation Saucer In The Amazon, 1977: www.ufoupdateslist.com/2007/oct/m28-027.shtml The Brazilian UFO Magazine website - www.ufo.com.br - already has thousands of pages for download, such as over 1,200 pages of documents of the extinct System for the Investigation of Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon (SIOANI), an official organization created in 1969 inside the Brazilian Air Force to deal with the UFO Phenomena in the 60s and 70s. Yeah, the first publicly known in the world. Also, or website has over 500 pages and 200 photos of the Operation Saucer activities, a military mission carried out in the Amazonian region in 1977 which resulted very successful in documenting - with over 500 photos and 16 hours of 8mm and 16mm films - UFOs over the area. Along with other documents received by the Committee from other military sources. All the mentioned documents and others can be found here, as a courtesy of the Brazilian UFO Magazine: www.ufo.com.br/documents Please note: Download, print, publicize and otherwise share these documents, but please do not fail to mention the source, Brazilian UFO Magazine, and emphasize that this material is now publicly known thanks to the efforts of the Brazilian Committee of UFO Researchers (CBU). These have been very good days for Brazilian Ufology! A. J.
