CLP affiliate Fabio de Sa e Silva, Assistant Professor of International Studies and Wick Cary Professor of Brazilian Studies at the University of Oklahoma, was recently mentioned in an article in the New York Times discussing Brazilian politics and Elon Musk. Relating a Republican hearing on how the Supreme Court is blocking social media accounts, the New York Times wrote;”One witness, Fabio de Sa e Silva, a Brazilian lawyer and professor at the University of Oklahoma, said that he believed Brazilian law supported Mr. Moraes’s right to block accounts. He argued that any crisis in Brazil’s democracy was not because of judges but rather because of ‘mobs unwilling to play by the rules.'”
