As we approach 100 days of Brazil’s new far-right presidency, this meeting will look at the growing threat posed to Brazilians resisting Bolsonaro and defending democracy, human rights and social progress. 

Join the Brazil Solidarity Initiative for an eye-witness report back from Brazil, an update on the political situation and a first-hand look at the threat placed on social movements in Brazil today.

With:
• Julia Felmanas, Brazilian Worker’s party (London branch) with for a special eye-witness report back from Brazil
• Danielle Rowley MP
• Kate Hudson, CND
• Chair: Claudia Webbe, Labour NEC
PLUS MORE TBA!

The meeting will also mark a year since the jailing of President Lula, the favourite to win Brazil’s election, until his jailing by a judge who has since become Bolsonaro’s Minister of Justice. International calls for Lula’s release are growing ever louder.

In the month of International Women’s Day, we will also be commemorating Marielle Franco on the first anniversary of her brutal assassination. Franco was not only one of the most progressive Brazilian politicians but an advocate for the rights of Afro-Brazilians, LGBT people, women and low-income communities.
