Attempted fascist coup in Brazil

Tuesday, 24 January 2023 - 8:30am to 9:00am

Thousands of supporters of Brazil’s fascistic former president Jair Bolsonaro invaded and occupied for more than three hours the headquarters of the three branches of government in Brasilia, the country’s capital, on Sunday 8 January. The protesters demanded a military coup to depose and imprison recently inaugurated President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva of the Workers Party (PT). Although the situation was brought under control, and the fascist occupation of the buildings ended, there remains a looming threat of a military coup with fascist-sympathetic leaders.
To discuss the rising threat of fascism in Brazil is Brazilian eco-feminist and socialist, Fernanda Santos.
