The EBC expresses the Cultural richness and diversity of Brazil

In 2007, almost 20 years after the ratification of the Constitution, a new chapter was written in the history of public communications in Brazil: The Congress approved a Temporary Law creating the Brazilian Communications Company (EBC), with the merger of Radiobrás with the Roquete Pinto Educational Communications Association (Acerp).

"Brazil has taken a giant step, in the process with which we include and guarantee income for a part of our population. As important as income for these citizens is access to the Internet. It is as important as income and the guarantee of a society with citizens that have their own opinions - and are free to express them. That, for us, is the incalculable value of the Internet.”

English

“This conference is being held under the banner of freedom of the press. I am proud to say that the press in Brazil is free. The press investigates an issue or not, publishes or does not publish as it so desires, offers opinions or does not offer opinions as it sees fit. My commitment to freedom of the press is sacred, it is essential for a democratic society. A democratic society can only exist so long as it consolidates and strengthens a free press.”.

“For us, today is an historic day, because this fight for civilian control of the Internet is a struggle that has been going on for a long time. Despite the fact that the Senate acted quickly, this discussion with civil society has been going on for the last few years, in different spaces.”
