leTTer From The dIrecTorS
2007 has been a very important and successul year or the consolidation oConectas´s work towards the protection and promotion o human rights. As part o our Global South Program, we have developed an innovative advocacycampaign, which has united several NGOs rom Latin America to deend humanrights in an Arican country – Zimbabwe. Moreover, we have participated in the mainUN Human Rights Council (HRC) sessions in Geneva and have organized a meeting inSao Paulo with other NGOs working with the HRC to evaluate the role o civil societyin the HRC during 2007 and to plan joint actions or 2008.The consolidation o our international activities was conrmed by the success o the VII International Human Rights Colloquium, which brought together 56 activists rom26 countries rom the Global South, in Sao Paulo, rom 3 to 10 November 2007.Furthermore, the Human Rights Fellowship Program or Angola and Mozambiquehas broadened its reach and, in 2008, will receive participants rom Guinea Bissau.Two issues o Sur – International Journal on Human Rights were published in Juneand December 2007, including one in collaboration with the International Center orTransitional Justice (ICTJ), on transitional justice. We have also ordered the rstoutside evaluation o the Journal and reader prole, and are glad to inorm that theresults indicated that 66 % o our readers consider it excellent.Through our Justice Program, we have consolidated our activities at the BrazilianSupreme Court, by acting as
amicus curiae 
in several undamental rights issuessuch as stem cell research, armative action and gun control. We also denouncedbeore the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) the outrageousliving conditions o the inmates at the Guarujá Jail, in the state o Sao Paulo –which was subsequently closed. In addition, our judicial actions in avor oadolescent inmates in the state o Sao Paulo have resulted in important changes insentences o the Brazilian courts such as substantial increases in the amounts ocompensations or death o adolescents in state custody, and the closing o some
of the worst units of the Sao Paulo Juvenile Detention Center (Fundação CASA,
ormer FEBEM).Moreover, we have progressed with the dissemination o
pro bono 
lawyering ideals:we have contributed to the establishment o
pro bono 
initiatives in other states othe Brazilian Federation, besides Sao Paulo, and have won essential support rom
