    Mr. Ivanir dos Santos,

    Already knew his public figure because of various interventions in the media in defense of minorities. But knew nothing of his biography and work with their group ahead of CEAP.

    I commend the courage to face the daily challenge of fighting for minorities and against religious intolerance.

    Strength, faith and success to all.

    Paulo Sergio.
