Brazil to US, RE: AIDS Money: Lick Me

Brazil has rejected $40 million in U.S. funds for fighting AIDS because of demands that it condemn prostitution, a key participant in its flagship AIDS program. The move is seen by some observers as a rejection of Washington’s head-in-the-sand linkage of neo-con morality and foreign aid. ”Biblical principles [are] their guide, not science,” Pedro Chequer, director of Brazil’s AIDS program told media outlets on Wednesday. “This premise is inadequate because it hurts our autonomous national policy.”

    Viva Brasil for standing up to the neo-cons! Too bad it had to be something so vital as support for the AIDS fight.
