A terra treme
O colunista Alcemo Gois, de O Globo, informa que a Escola de Direito da FGV cancelou na sexta-feira (15/5), na última hora, um jantar no Copacabana Palace para Antonin Scalia, ministro da Suprema Corte dos EUA. Segundo Ancelmo, foi em protesto contra a decisão do embaixador americano no Brasil, Clifford Sobel, de vetar a presença de advogados da família Lins e Silva. Tudo por causa dessa polêmica sobre o destino do menino Sean Goldman, que vive com seu padrasto, João Paulo Lins e Silva.

The earth trembles
The columnist Alcemo Gois, of O Globo, announced that the School of Law, FGV canceled on Friday (15 / 5) at the last minute, a dinner at the Copacabana Palace for Antonin Scalia, minister of the U.S. Supreme Court. According to Ancelmo, it was in protest against the decision of the American ambassador in Brazil, Clifford Sobel, to veto the presence of lawyers from Lins e Silva family. All because of controversy over the fate of the boy Sean Goldman, who lives with his step-father, João Paulo Lins e Silva.
 
HOORAY for Ambassador Sobel!!!

Good for him. This is what needs to happen to finally bring Sean home. They need to know that the US government takes this case seriously and it isn't going away. Hopefully SOS Clinton will be discussing this case when she is in Brazil.

I agree...we should do another email mass sent to SOS before she goes to Brazil.  She can do more...just my opinion.  Earn that money and work to bring Sean home Hilary!!!

AT LAST people in positions of authority are starting to take a stand! Enough really IS ENOUGH!  FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!!! :clapping::clapping::clapping::clapping::clapping:
History has demonstrated that the most notable winners usually encountered heartbreaking obstacles before they triumphed. They won because they refused to become discouraged by their defeats.

...Sean Goldman, who lives with her father, João Paulo Lins e Silva.
 

is this a bad translation, or do they really refer to JPLS as Sean's "father"?

I hope this continues and I hope there is a decision soon.  This waiting game is so wrong.

It is heartening to see the Lins e Silva family being treated with the indignation befitting of the international pariahs that they have become.

It is shame this is becoming a US vs. Brazil issue.
Believe me, Hillary is not going to visit any country without a very good briefing of every potential issue and conflict. She is well aware of the Sean case and has spoken publicly about it. I think she will be careful but she will certainly put some pressure in Brazil. But seeing Jose Dirceu's blog, I think she is going to be faced with opposition within the government.
Brazil's ego is high right now, they think they can "show the middle finger" to the US, but things are going downhill a bit economy-wise, they cannot give themselves that luxury.
