Description
Brazils newly appointed Minister of Planning Roberto Campos contended tonight that there was less violence during the recent revolution in his country than there has been in the United States civil rights struggle. While reacting to questions on the direction and the methods of the new Brazilian government, Mr. Campos said, I would say there has been less violence and bloodshed in Brazil than there has been in the United State on the Negro issue, and clearly Negroes there are not enemies of democracy. So, we have managed, with very little, if any, physical violence, and I would say, even with less deprivation of civil rights than there has been for years in the United States on this question of the racial issue. Mr. Campos said, There was an initial moment of revolutionary fervor in which come excesses were committed. But those excesses, clearly, are much less than those which could be committed were it not for the fact that this march into economic chaos and destruction of democratic rights were to continue. And, in fact, I dont think the Americans should be particularly self-righteous on this score. Mr. Campos was interviewed by Juan Deonis, foreign correspondent of the New York Times and Nathan Miller, correspondent for the Baltimore Sun. In reference to Brazils agricultural problems, Mr. Campos said the government has already announced its intention of going ahead with a realistic and democratic reform. By realistic, I mean a land reform that takes into account the enormous variety of regional conditions. The solution is complexbut I must say there is seriousness now in this purpose. As for the governments plan in urban reform, Mr. Campos said, The approach to the problem of urban reform would be largely through the restoration of incentives for popular saving, designed specifically to housing. Mr. Campos said, We shall make time to do all the present government has set out to do in view of the promise of a new presidential election in October 1965. Also appearing on the program was Erico Verissimo, leading Brazilian novelist and social commentator. Mr. Verissimo was interviewed at his home by N.E.T.s Alvin Perlmutter. The program runs approximately 30 minutes. (Description adapted from documents in the NET Microfiche)
