And some of them clearly showed to be oppose to that: AffCom acts very strange when the topic is Brazil, the WMBR proposal, after years do not received any justification to why they want so bad to avoid , they force a creation of a new group to assume the leadership in Brazil, and now are approving another chapter initiative with headers that not even the guys that the AffCom put against WMBR to create the WUG-BR, trust...  https://br.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia:%C3%81gora#Adequa.C3.A7.C3.A3o_do_wiki  https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Talk:Wikimedia_Brazilian_Group_of_Education_and_Research/User_Group_Proposal#Oppose  https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Talk:Wikimedia_Brasil/AffCom#A_message_from_the_Affiliations_Committee On 13 April 2015 at 14:36, Santi Navarro <santiagonava...@wikimedia.org.es> wrote: > Parabéns / Congratulations > > > El 2015-04-12 13:28, ma...@wikimedia.org.ve escribió: > >> Dear all, >> >> The Affiliations Commitee has approved the recognition of the >> Wikimedia Community Brazilian Group of Education and Research as a >> Wikimedia User Group.
