Here you can find out all about our upcoming and past Brazil Solidarity Initiative events, organised in support of social progress, democratic rights and equality in Brazil.
Resisting Racism and Bolsonaro’s Far-Right : Solidarity with BLM Brazil & the Indigenous Struggle. – 7pm, Thu, 3 September
Far-right president Bolsonaro’s systematic destruction of indigenous protections has led to the spread of the virus into vulnerable indigenous communities around the country and his irresponsible stance is contributing to the growth of misinformation about COVID-19.
We’ve witnessed a rise in racism towards black, indigenous and other Brazilians, making Black movements in Brazil like those of quilombo communities, BLM; and the indigenous struggle vitally important at this critical time.
