On Friday night, dozens of people with green and yellow banners, fireworks and loud sound equipment tried to stop the journalist from talking to the crowd that filled the Paraty pier in an event parallel to Flip .
Greenwald participated in a debate organized by independent publishers on investigative journalism, along with comedian and presenter Gregorio Duviver and journalist Sergio Amadeu.
During the speech, Greenwald reaffirmed the veracity of the dialogues being published by The Intercept portal and some Brazilian media outlets, such as the newspaper Folha de S.Paulo, Veja magazine and TV Bandeirantes, which called into question the impartiality of Operation Lava Jato.
"The Brazilian 'media', with few exceptions, has published many things, many leaks [de informações sobre investigações da Lava Jato] who wanted them to be known, but did not investigate judges and prosecutors [quando] there were many suspicions that they were corrupt and doing things for political reasons, "Greenwald said.
"Moro's mask has fallen forever … We are much closer to the beginning than to the end. We have much more to reveal," he said, referring to illegal talks allegedly held by the former judge and current Minister of Justice of Brazil, Sérgio Moro, with the prosecutors of the Lava Jet that Intercept received from an anonymous source.
