Legality Movement arrives in Porto Alegre


Edson Vismona, president of ETCO and FNCP, representing the Movement in Defense of the Brazilian Legal Market, launched with Mayor Nelson Marchezan, last Monday (18/12), the Legality Movement.

The Movement foresees coordinated actions to combat the illegal market (smuggling, piracy, counterfeiting), integrating the bodies of the City Hall, Federal Police, Federal Revenue, Federal Highway Police, Military Brigade and Civil Police. Various Civil Society entities such as FECOMERCIO / RS, SINDILOJAS, Associação Comercial, FIERGS and FEDERASUL support this initiative, which will also stimulate public awareness actions so that they do not purchase illegal products.

Porto Alegre is the fourth city to join the Legality Movement. São Paulo, Recife and Campinas are already part of the project.

The initiative had extensive press coverage. See the main articles here:
