Brasilia, Brazil. The Grand Orient of Brazil has suspended relations with the French National Grand Lodge yesterday, February 13, 2012. Tullio Colacioppo (Grand Chancellor) informed GLNF that relations were suspended because of the deplorable situation in which the GLNF finds itself.
This decision paves the way for Latin American Grand Lodges to start break relations with French Freemasonry. The Grand Orient of Brazil is the largest Masonic Obedience in Brazil.
