Photographer's Note

I was trying to take images of the fabulous modernist building of Apucarana City Hall, but unfortunately the building is so damaged by the time it is needing a restore. Suddenly I saw this humble monument at side, it has two faces and I am showing one of them today.
Soldiers of my region participated of many UN missions abroad to pacify regions in conflicts, the last one was in Haiti. Here we can see the famous Blue Helmets and a text informing about. I remember I had a teacher in the university who worked as a soldier of UN in Egypt in 1973.
During many decades Brazil was seen as a neutral country, well seen by the others and our diplomacy was able to deal with different sides in a conflict, this was destroyed in these last years with the governments of Lula and Dilma linked with leftist dictatorships in Cuba, Venezuela, Nicaragua and Africa. When Bolsonaro took control of the power he linked his government with Trump and the damage was completed. Nowadays no more respect, no more balance, no more tolerance.

Eu estava tentando tirar fotos do magnfico pr馘io modernista da Prefeitura de Apucarana, mas o pr馘io estava t縊 danificado pelo tempo que n縊 valia a pena. Mesmo ao lado encontrei um pequeno monumento que tinha duas faces e eu mostro uma delas aqui.
O monumento presta homenagem aos soldados da nossa regi縊 que participaram de misses de paz da ONU mundo afora, uma das ltimas foi no Haiti. Nessa foto vemos um relevo do capacete azul com a nossa bandeira e um texto informativo ao lado. Me lembro que um professor meu da faculdade havia trabalhado como capacete azul numa miss縊 no Egito em 1973. Infelizmente nas ltimas duas d馗adas o respeito e a neutralidade que nosso pas tinha no exterior se perderam.
