Stuart Angel

Marcelo Guimarães Lima, Portrait of Stuart Angel, pencil on paper, 21x29cm, 2021


We will never forget the courage, fearlessness and dedication to the popular cause of Stuart Angel and his companions.

Like so many young Brazilians of his generation, Stuart Angel (1946-1971) fought the military dictatorship and was brutally, cowardly tortured and murdered in a military base in Rio de Janeiro. His mother, Zuzu Angel, for trying courageously to seek justice for her son, was also murdered by the regime of coup generals and homeland sellouts that muzzled the country for two decades in the last century.

We will never forget the courage, fearlessness and dedication to the popular cause of Stuart Angel and his companions. We will not forget and we do not forgive his tormentors. The impunity of torturers and coup generals is not only a shameful stain on the country's history, something that, consciously or unconsciously, weighs on all Brazilians, but also one of the important elements in the genesis of the current situation where a defender of torture and dictatorship holds the office of president.
