Augusto Boal Update

Dear Richard,

in all, from all over the world, I have up to now received almost 700 emails. They keep coming. From your friends came many many - some of them wrote me a second email to tell me that you had contacted them and expressing their solidarity.

The effect is still unknown - my lawyer has not yet received an invitation from the President of Amnesty Commission to go to Brasília to deffend my case, as she had asked for. She says she will wait until next week and then try again. In her opinion, this enormous ammount of emails will produce a strong impression, but things in Brasília are slow, very slow.

I will certainly write you as soon as something new happens. Once again, thanks a lot, fraternally, Augusto
