several years ago when i was deep into metal one Brazilian band protested against how brutal Brazilian police is, and about human rights violations by the authorities .

now to the question i see that trance in Brazil prospers and grow rapidly, i read about all those great parties and festivals with amazing international line-ups, do the authorities try to interfere ?
maybe it was discussed before but i never saw this question raised so i was curious .

The Authorities only try to interfere to keep the law: Using or selling drugs is a crime, no more no less than that. Their problem is not at all the party itself, but the drugs, and when they find they can be pretty rough with you, not always, but most of times. Of course another thing is that cops themselves sometimes are to ones who are selling the drugs, but that's another story...

imo brazil will now experience what already happened in goa, some places in europe israel ( correct me if im wrong ) which is cops busting parties since the movement is in evidence...it already happened in trancoso...there was a kind of documentary on brazil's most popular tv trying to connect parties they called "raves" and xtc as a necessary match... there was a reporter with a hidden camera buying xtc alive at celebra brasil, lafranconi's festival that took place in paraty on the 30th march...its disgusting...people who really love the music will have to stand for the movement...and guys: SUPPORT THE UNDERGROUND

IŽd say that, if one compares Brazil to other countries (specially EuropeŽs, Japan, Canada & USA), brazilian police does not interfere at all with rave parties. And this happens for two main reasons: The first and most important one, the absolute lack of structure and coordination of the police authorities; Second (which leads to the first or vice-versa, whatever...) , the high criminality rate which exists in Brazil, forcing the authorities to "rank" crimes by their importance in terms of violence and public repercussion, and not by being crimes per se...Everybody (including the police) knows what happens within the parties...Most of our parties here are promoted with the help of thousand of nicely printed flyers, given to everybody....You can get infos about them, weeks in advance, in many sites over the net, and a few of them even get announced over the radios...Many are even officialy supported by the municipalities themselves, eager to attract "tourists". And, to wrap it up, some of them are even protected by the police, with police cars stopped right at the entrance to the party. Hmmm, yup, one might say the police does not interfere AT ALL with our parties.

I think that the trance movement is now getting into focus in the brazilian media... TV programmes are trying to link electronic music with all sort of drugs (specially e) all the time... However, the police does not interfere much in the parties... most of them just want some money from you and will let you go right away... Brazil is a very nice and tolerant country...
