Bruno Covas was a multifaceted, versatile, serious, competent, committed, human rights-minded politician – Agência AIDS



I met Bruno, a young man, a state deputy who was already giving strength to the then nascent Diversidade Tucana.

It was he who signed the Diversidade Tucana membership in 2009, giving us the opportunity and encouraging the group to grow and move on our own.

Rand a partner of human diversity, in 2011, together with State MPs Ricardo Montoro, he proposed a bill that became State Law 14.363 / 2011, which included sexual orientation and gender identity in the provisions of Law 10.313 / 1999. which prohibits any form of discrimination in access to elevators in all public or private, commercial, industrial and multi-family residential buildings in the state of São Paulo.

Ua politician like a few who did not hide his convictions, convictions and views in favor of the political game.

At the head of São Paulo City Hall in 2018, he issued Municipal Decrees Nos. 58,227 and 58,228, which restructured the TransCidadania program, which currently provides 510 scholarships; and renewed the decree on respect for social name and gender identity in all direct, indirect and autarchic public administration, including with respect to the publications of the Official Gazette of the city.

In 2019, the management of Bruno Covas opened the 2nd block of Casa de Acolhida Florescer for trans and transvestites, expanding by another 30 vacancies and complementing those opened by the first Casa.

He also opened the Cultural Diversity Center, which aims to expand and distribute exclusively cultural LGBT + products, becoming the first cultural center in Brazil to offer this.

NIn 2020, the Cláudia Wonder LGBTI + Citizenship Center was opened in the western area of ​​the city, expanding the LGBT population protection network to all areas of the city. Today we have five centers, one in each region.

In the midst of the pandemic, with the growing social vulnerability of the LGBTI + population, after the loss of work, home, family, administration, through the LGBTI + Policy Coordination, we have formulated “SP CONTRATA TRANS” with other city secretariats and partners. companies that promote the employment of transvestites, transgender women and transgender men, offering 470 jobs in a wide variety of fields.

Also in connection with COVID-19, LGBTI + Citizenship Centers have integrated the distribution network of the Cidade Solidária program, offering basic food baskets for the entire population, especially for the LGBTI + community in situations of vulnerability.

ABOUTAnother important step was the adoption of Law No. 17.301 / 20, which provides for the application of administrative sanctions against practices of discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. Now the state and the municipality have important tools to combat LGBT phobia.

Despite all this and for the transparency with which he always treated his state of health, I could not help but pay tribute and gratitude to those who have done a lot for us, LGBTI +.

BRUNO KOVAS is alive! Rest, the rest of the righteous!

The dollar continues to reflect the political scenario



The dollar continues to reflect the political scenario

Yesterday, financial agents evaluated the opposite decision of the Federal Supreme Court (STF) regarding the so-called secret budget. In addition, a decision was made by STF Minister Gilmar Méndez to issue an injunction that would exclude the Bolsa Família from the spending cap rule, with investors trying to understand how this measure would affect the processing of the transitional PEC in the Chamber of Deputies. Oh this PEC!!!!

Since he is an exchange investor, any reading that the budget will be exceeded or become more flexible will negatively affect the exchange market, whether through the PEC or in any other way. We will continue with volatility today.

Looking beyond, the US Central Bank (Fed), although slowing down the pace of monetary tightening at its December meeting, issued a tougher-than-expected statement warning that its fight against inflation was not yet over, raising fears that rising US interest rates will push the world’s largest economy into recession.

The currency market continues to react to political news. The voting on the PEC is saved for today. It is expected that it will indeed be reviewed to open the way tomorrow for discussions on the 2023 budget.

Yesterday, the spot price closed the selling day at R$5.3103.

For today on the calendar we will have an index of consumer confidence in the eurozone. Good luck and good luck in business!!

The EU has reached a political agreement on limiting gas prices – 19.12.2022



Germany sentenced Russian to life imprisonment for political murder by order of Moscow - 12/15/2021
BRUSSELS, DECEMBER 19 (ANSA). European Union countries reached a political agreement on Monday (19) to impose a natural gas price ceiling of 180 euros per megawatt hour (MWh). The main sources of income for Russia and the minimization of the use of energy as a weapon by the regime of Vladimir Putin.

The agreement was approved by a supermajority at a ministerial meeting of member states in Brussels, Belgium, after months of discussions about the best way to contain the rise in natural gas prices in the bloc caused by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. .

The value set by the countries is well below the proposal made by the European Commission, the EU’s executive body, in November: 275 EUR/MWh. However, the countries leading the cap campaign were in favor of an even lower limit, around 100 EUR/MWh.

Germany, always wary of price controls, voted in favor of 180 euros, while Austria and the Netherlands, also skeptical of the cap, abstained. Hungary, the most pro-Russian country in the EU, voted against.

The instrument will enter into force on 15 February, but only if natural gas prices on the Amsterdam Stock Exchange exceed 180 euros/MWh for three consecutive days. In addition, the difference compared to a number of global benchmarks should be more than 35 euros.

Italy, the EU’s biggest supporter of the ceiling, has claimed responsibility for the measure. “This is a victory for Italy, which believed and worked for us to reach this agreement,” Environment and Energy Minister Gilberto Picetto tweeted.

“This is a victory for Italian and European citizens who demand energy security,” he added.

However, Russia has already threatened to stop exports to countries that adhere to the ceiling. (ANSA).
