The Brazilian National Anthem



Brazil

Ouviram do Ipiranga às margens plácidas
De um povo heróico o brado retumbante,
E o sol da liberdade, em raios fúlgidos,
Brilhou no céu da Pátria nesse instante.

Se o penhor dessa igualdade
Conseguimos conquistar com braço forte,
Em teu seio ó liberdade,
Desafia o nosso peito a própria morte!

Ó Pátria amada
Idolatrada
Salve! Salve!

Brasil de um sonho intenso, um raio vívido,
De amor e de esperança à terra desce
Se em teu formoso céu risonho e límpido
A imagem do Cruzeiro resplandece

Gigante pela própria natureza
És belo, és forte, impávido colosso,
E o teu futuro espelha essa grandeza,

Terra adorada!
Entre outras mil
És tu, Brasil,
Ó Pátria amada

Dos filhos deste solo és mãe gentil,
Pátria amada
Brasil!

Deitado eternamente em berço esplêndido,
ao som do mar e à luz do céu profundo,
Fulguras, ó Brasil, florão da América,
Iluminado ao sol do Novo Mundo!

Do que a terra mais garrida

Teus risonhos lindos campos tem mais flores,
"Nossos bosques tem mais vida"
"Nossa vida" no teu seio "mais amores"

Ó Pátria amada
Idolatrada
Salve! Salve!

Brasil, de amor eterno seja símbolo
O lábaro que ostentas estrelado,
E diga o verde-louro dessa flâmula
- paz no futuro e glória no passado
Mas se ergues da justiça a clava forte,

Verás que um filho teu não foge à luta,
Nem teme, quem te adora, a própria morte,

Terra adorada!
Entre outras mil
És tu, Brasil,
Ó Pátria amada
Dos filhos deste solo és mãe gentil

Pátria amada
Brasil!


English:

The peaceful banks of the Ipiranga
Heard the resounding cry of an heroic people,
And the dazzling rays of the sun of Liberty
Bathed our country in their brilliant light.

If with strong arm we have succeeded
In winning a pledge of equality,
In thy bosom, O Liberty,
Our hearts will defy death itself!

O adored Fatherland,
Cherished and revered,
All hail! All Hail!

Brazil, a dream sublime,
vivid ray of love and hope to earth descends,
Where in your clear, pure, beauteous skies
The image of the Southern Cross shines forth.

O country vast by nature,
Fair and strong, brave and colossus,
Thy future mirrors this thy greatness.

O land adored
Above all others,
'Tis thee Brazil,
Beloved Fatherland!

Thou art the gentle mother of the
children of this soil,
Beloved land,
Brazil!

Laid out eternally in the splendor of nature,
In the sound of the sea and the light of heaven,
may thou shine, O Brazil, flower of America,
Illumined by the sun of the New World!

More flowers put forth in thy fair, smiling fields
Than the in the most gorgeously reputed lands;
"More life is to be found in the groves",
"More love in our lives" in thy embrace.

O adored Fatherland,
Cherished and revered,
All Hail!
All Hail!

May the star-scattered banner flown by thee,
Brazil, become the symbol of eternal love,
And may the green-gold flag proclaim always
- Peace in the future and glory in the past -

But if the mighty sword of justice drawn forth,
You will perceive your children, who adore you,
neither fear to fight,
nor flee from death itself.

O land adored
Above all others,
'Tis thee Brazil,
Beloved Fatherland!

Thou art the gentle mother of
the children of this soil,
Beloved land,
Brazil!

Question of: Drug Reduction

Delegation: Brazil

Delegate: Khalid Al-Humaidhi

Defining Drugs as a substance that negatively affects the way an organism thinks or acts.

Deeply concerned about the spread of drugs worldwide and the fact that drugs can cause death.

Deeply aware that drug use in Brazil is widespread, and Brazil has become the corridor for cocaine to the US.

Approving the support by many countries’ campaigns against drugs are not making a big enough effect to reduce drugs.

Recognizing that the campaigns are not achieving significant drug sales reduction.

Bearing in mind that the UN’s organization for drug reduction has tried a significant amount to reduce the drug smuggling and the spread of drugs worldwide.

Deeply disturbed by the effect of drug growing and drug smuggling on the laborers employed in their cultivation:

a) The ill treatment of laborers and the forcing of them to work for the drug plantations for no money at all.

b) The spread of illnesses between the laborers due to the poor food and housing.

c) Laborers also become victims of the ongoing war between the criminal army of the drug lords and the law enforcement in certain countries.

Noting that drugs also have an effect on both drug addicts and innocent people through:

1) The spread of crime drug-related:

a) The killing of innocent people to protect drug organizations.

b) The killing of innocent people because of the actions that drug addicts take to get drugs.

2) The spread of AIDS due to drugs because of the sharing of needles.

1. Urges the UNHCHR (United Nations High Commissioner For Human Rights) and the UNICEF (United Nations International Children’s Fund) to help laborers and children working on the drug fields to find alternative jobs.

2. Resolves that the world should give more attention to drugs then they are now to lessen the drugs worldwide.

3. Resolves to support drug-fighting agencies worldwide, to fight the drug problem by providing:

a) Training of investigators who will trace drug suppliers.

b) Information to drug-fighting agencies.

c) Funding to these agencies.

d) Technology to help in investigation.

4. Asks the UN to assist the countries which need help to end drug-smuggling with:

a) Training for the border army and personnel.

b) Equipment for the fight against drug smugglers.

c) Exchange of information.

5. Encourages UNICEF to provide early drug education to all countries so that the future generations will be better informed about the risks of drug abuse.

6. Resolves that the UN institutes further rehabilitation programs for drug addicts including:

a) Psychiatrists and psychologists who will help them deal with their personal problems

b) Biologists and specialized doctors to treat drug addicts.

c) Sufficient medication for drug addicts until they are cured.

7. Further requests the UN to pass a resolution demanding a life sentence for any convicted drug-dealer.
