A. J. Geaverd’s Message About the Brazilian UFO Disclosure
Translated by Farah Yurdozu

With an immense pleasure we inform to all Brazilian Ufological Community that in a very short time we will be harvesting the fruits of our long one, exhausting but victorious campaign for the freedom of information in our country, the UFOs movement: Freedom of Information Now. Representatives of the Brazilian Commission of Ufologists (CBU) will be in Brasilia (DF) on this Friday 20th, invited by the Brazilian Aeronautics, for a meeting as our military, where certain private archives will be opened and it will be tried to establish a protocol of joint inquiry between our aeronautical authorities and the civil ufologists, with sights to the creation of a commission for this end. This will be a gigantic step for all of us.

We are in countdown for this great moment of the Brazilian Ufology, dream of our ufologists has some decades, that is in ways of if carrying through after one year of intense work through editions printed and of the site of Magazine UFO. During this year, Magazine UFO received some critical reactions about the form that lead the movement, considered for ones as "unilateral" and for others, as "precipitated". We respect all the opinions and the critical ones of colleagues.

But the fact is that we always made what we find certain, with consultations to the certain people and best of all the intentions. Happily our campaign is victorious! In this year UFOs movement: Freedom of Information Now, we put together the expressive number of 36 thousand signatures, what it is a significant support to the movement. To all these friends, our perpetual gratefulness.

Our process of approach with the Brazilian Air Force (BAF) started in passed February, 10 months after the beginning of the campaign. The Aeronautics considered our lawsuit just and demonstrated disposal to talk with Brazilian the Ufológical Community, through the Brazilian Commission of Ufologists, that launched the campaign and it kept it so far alive. In the occasion, a representative of the military in looked them and offered itself to receive the ufologists to the front from the campaign, giving signals of that the BAF would go to open its archives. After some adjournments, the great meeting was marked for next day 20 to May, in Brasilia. J. Gevaerd, Landmark Petit, Claudeir Covo, Rafael Cury, Fernando Ramalho and Robert Beck, substituting Reginaldo de Athayde will go to the meeting the ufologists. The six people are these who had launched the movement for the freedom of information and keep it living creature until today (unfortunately, our co-publisher of UFO Athayde, patient after a series of surgeries, will not be able to appear).

This historical meeting was treated, in the passed Sunday, by the Istoé magazine, that published a substance the respect with participation of Gevaerd and Covo. It is everything confirmed so that the Fantastic can report our visit to Brasilia and make the covering of the meeting in its edition that will go to air in 22 of May. It is possible that other ways of the press also appear, giving bigger amplitude to this conquest. You can send your messages to editor@ufo.com.br.  But nor all the notice are positive, unhappily. The repercussion of the Istoé provoked some reactions and profits that already were waited. Between them, sadly, the manifestation of other groups and people of the Ufology, demanding of the BAF the "same treatment that Magazine UFO will have". Yes, demanding, as if the BAF was privileging or benefiting of some form the group of ufologists around Magazine UFO, or the ufologists of the CBU, in particular. However, widely it is known that since the first moment of our campaign, insistently and through more than a dozen of editions of UFO and hundreds of internal pages of our site, we have been absolutely clear how much to the character of the campaign. Our position is: any that is the results of this contact with the Aeronautics, in case that it if has limited to an only occasion or comes to be kept permanent, all the details - the exception of that our interlocutor to discriminate - will be to the disposal of the Brazilian Ufology, without restriction, monopoly or method of clipping. Our campaign is ample, democratic and represents of fact the yearnings of smashing majority of the Brazilian Ufology. We wait that the actions of these groups or people do not come to place everything to lose. Therefore, one more time, as we made at as many moments of our UFOs campaign: Freedom of Information Now, we repeat: what the CBU to obtain of the BAF goes to be opened to the all the never restrained or monopolized Brazilian Ufology and of any form.
