Many Brazilians have a blind eye towards the reality of corruption that has been plaguing their country for years. Only a few individuals had shown bravery to face these issues, including the Brazilian lawyer Bruno Fagali. He initiated the advocacy called the FAGALI Advocacy and called upon his fellow Brazilians to do something about the problem of corruption that has been present in their country since its early history. Bruno Fagali’s action would take them to local government offices, and he would be lecturing the employees about the dangers of corruption, and why they should not involve in any activities that would involve the stealing of government funds because they can be charged and cases can be filed against them. This action is called the departmental integrity drive, and its main objective is to bring back transparency in Brazilian government offices.
Since he started the departmental transparency drive, statistics have shown that the instance of corruption in the country went down, and many government officials are starting to fear that they will be caught by the public eyes that have been empowered by Bruno Fagali. Corrupt politicians who are still doing these corrupt activities are often being humiliated by the media, and Bruno Fagali revealed that the culture of corruption would only fade away if only the public would work together to expose them. The FAGALI Advocacy has been one of the most successful activities against corruption, and other personalities in Brazil have already joined hands with Bruno Fagali to fight off the negative practice.
Bruno Fagali thanked everyone who has shown their support regarding his advocacy, and he promised that more corrupt politicians will be exposed and that he would be making tours all around the country to disseminate information. The culture of corruption in Brazil may take decades or even centuries before it completely disappears, but Bruno Fagali stated that the small step he did in fighting off corruption would mean bigger things for the people of Brazil. Each small step that he contributes in fighting off the dreaded practice would mean a brighter and better future for the next generation of Brazilians.
