(Housemaid). It is estimated that there are about seven million housemaids active in Brazil. Only recently, a law came into effect that regulates their rights and working conditions.

UN Global 500 prize for Brazilian sociologist Herbert José de Sousa (Betinho).
‘Mr. De Souza, also known as “Betinho”, is a sociologist, economist and author. He was head of the national Campaign for Agrarian Reform and founded the Brazilian Institute for Socio-Economic Analysis (IBASE). De Souza campaigned for Amazonian Indians and rain forests by co-authoring “Tregda Ecologica para a Amazonia” (Give Peace to Amazonia), a publication advocating eco-development in the Amazonas. In 1988 he coordinated the Se Liga Rio (Pay Attention Rio) movement, offering an answer to city violence, pollution and surrounding deforestation. With the help of IBASE he and others organized “Terra e Democracia” (“Earth and Democracy”), the biggest ecological event in Brazilian history dedicated to the Amazon and Indian nations.’ (www.global500.org)

Death of guerrilla fighter Milton Soares de Castro (Guerrilha de Caparaó).
Milton participated in a guerrilla group that resided in the mountainous region between the states of Minas Gerais and Espírito Santo. They started the first armed revolt against the military dictatorship. The few dozen members (which included politician Lionel Brizola) were trained at a fazenda. Initially, the group received support from the Cuban government. Cuba then preferred to support the group of Carlos Marighella, and the guerrilla group was abandoned. In order to fight hunger, the members started to steal food in the region. The group was discovered by the military police and offered little resistance.
