The session of the National Congress began on April 1, 1964, in which the then president of the Senate Auro de Moura Andrade declared the Presidency of the Republic vacant. João Goulart was deposed, and the election promised for the following year never took place. Brazil then saw the birth of one of its darkest moments as General Humberto Castelo Branco began the 21-year period of military governments. The democratic resumption established since 1985 never dispelled the ghosts of a new coup – and investigations by the Federal Police indicate that, at the end of Jair Bolsonaro’s (PL) mandate, the civilian government with the largest number of military personnel in recent history, there was a real risk of another rupture. Now, under orders from Lula (PT), the federal government has vetoed all events about the memory of crimes committed by the military dictatorship. By putting a spotlight on the past, he tries to seek harmony between the powers of the State and the leadership of the Armed Forces. “Lula granted even the bare minimum, but we don’t know what compensation he is expecting”, warns Conrado Hübner Mendes, Law professor at USP, in an interview with Natuza Nery. For him, the country is experiencing “another lost opportunity to protect itself from this permanent threat”. Rafael Schincariol, coordinator of institutional relations at Instituto Herzog, also participates in this episode. He explains the importance of the vote initiated in the STF to define the limits of the Armed Forces’ actions, regulated by Article 142 of the Federal Constitution – the rapporteur, Minister Luiz Fux, has already voted to extinguish the thesis that they are the “moderating power” of the Republic.
