FORTALEZA, Brazil, March 27, 2009 - Aderson Maia Nogueira remains president of ABRACE, the National Sport Journalists Association in Brazil, whose Congress opened yesterday in the northeast of one of the biggest countries in the world.

The fact that there were no other candidates to oppose the historical leader of the Brazilian sports journalists (since 1995) is the first success of the 35th Congress of ABRACE which brings together twenty seven different State associations until Saturday.

"I feel strong and am ready to defend the rights of journalists," said Nogueira who is also a member of the AIPS Executive Committee and interim president of FEPEDA. "I have accepted the unanimous calls to continue the job, coming from the associations even before the Congress," he added.

ABRACE represents AIPS throughout this fabulous land, and has reached the top of the association lists with AIPS cards issued. This “super-association” is celebrating its 35th anniversary and is headquartered in Fortaleza, the "City of the Sun" (300 days of sun every year; 2,5 million population).

Members of the Federal and the State governments, parliamentary figures, State Secretaries for the Press and Tourism, and the president of the powerful Football Confederation of Brazil are the special guests of this Congress. Fortaleza is candidate for a sub-seat of the 2014 World Cup.

For the main interventions ABRACE invited three guest lecturers: the journalist Francisco José, from GLOBO press group, Hugo Lencina and Jorge Ribeiro, professors of Journalism at universities in Argentina and Portugal.

A "serious" football match between journalists, "to teach the real players", will close the 2009 ABRACE Congress.
