On September 21, members of the Brazilian community in Bridgeport gathered at the City Hall
Annex with Mayor William Finch and the General Consul of Brazil in Hartford Ambassador Cezar Amaral for the 9th annual Brazilian flag-raising ceremony in celebration of the independence of Brazil from Portugal.

In her speech, Mara Palmieri, the event organizer, remembered the moment on September 7, 1822, when Dom Pedro I broke any ties Brazil had once held with Portugal.
