O Sul é o Meu País
O Sul é Meu País ("The south is my country" in Portuguese) is a separatist movement that claims the independence of the south of Brazil, formed by the states of Paraná, Santa Catarina and Rio Grande do Sul.
The movement arose during the Segundo Congresso Separatista ("Second Separatist Congress" in Portuguese) celebrated on July 18 and 19, 1992 in Laguna, Santa Catarina, founded by Adílcio Cadorin, freemason and former mayor of the city. It was founded in 1993 and bases itself on the concept of self-determination of the peoples and does not constitute a political party, despite its founders being directly involved with politics. The movement is headquartered in Curitiba, Brazil and the President is Celso Deucher.
Its defenders allege that the states of Paraná, Santa Catarina and Rio Grande do Sul have particular and distinct characteristics from the rest of Brazil, and thus they claim the right to political, economic, social and cultural self-determination, basing on the expectation of self-sufficiency to direct better the resources of the state to attend to its regional peculiarities.
