Tough Battles for Democracy and Hope for more Freedom
30 December 2019 | by EduardoVieiraSPSee all my reviews

It makes you feel so present at a historic event with important political negotiating challenges where lives, freedom and rights are at stake in a primitive environment that still threatens local society. You can breathe past, present and future of humanity's organization perspective in a country.
