Brazil wants the UN restructured

A five-nation ‘Por­tuguese-speak­ing’ sum­mit reit­er­at­ed Brazil’s demand made by its Pres­i­dent, Lula da Sil­va, at the UN last month bq. “Latin Amer­i­cans have the right to have a per­ma­nent rep­re­sen­ta­tive, as well as Africa and Asia,” he said after attend­ing the Glob­al Com­pact Lead­ers Sum­mit.  “It is not a bad thing for the UN to have coun­tries like Brazil or oth­ers that demand more democ­ra­cy and more par­tic­i­pa­tion from oth­er coun­tries,” he said.  (“keepmedia”:http://www.keepmedia.com/pubs/AFP/2004/07/27/515497) Not sure in what sense Brazil would ‘rep­re­sent’ Latin Amer­i­ca. Nor India, Asia. But there’s no less log­ic in this scheme than in the present arrange­ments reflect­ing the trans-Atlantic set­tle­ment (Roo­sevelt-Churchill) of 1943.
