200708ujsOn Sunday, May 31, Brazilians took to the streets to counter neo-Nazi demonstrators and to protest police violence against people of color.

From the start of the pandemic, progressive forces emphasized life and democracy, with the understanding that science is the best defense to preserve people from Covid-19 and respect for social institutions is necessary to defend democracy. While science indicates that social isolation is the best road to save lives, we need a guaranteed right to isolation, which can be accomplished only by measures of social protection enacted by the governments.

As usual, President Bolsonaro ignored the science and did everything the other way around. He minimized the severity of the virus, encouraged people to...

“To us, the change in Brazil’s foreign policy has been extreme. It is sad because to the Foreign Affairs Ministries of Latin America and the Caribbean, Itamaraty has been a historical reference,” asserted Minister of People’s Power for Foreign Affairs Jorge Arreaza in an online contact with federal congressmen Glauber Vera and Paulo Pimenta, and former federal congresswoman Socorro Gomes.

In Brazil people live as in a trance, from one nightmare to the other —sometimes, all at once.

The extreme-right group governing the country has advocated for arming its followers, who are instructed to react against opposition forces, social movements and the other Powers of the Republic, the Legislative and Judiciary.

On this 29th of April 2020, the Brazilian Committee for Peace in Venezuela strongly denounces the expulsion of 28 Venezuelan diplomatic officials from Brazil.

President Nicolás Maduro expressed his solidarity with the Brazilian people in the face of the accelerated rise in COVID-19 mortality rate in the South American country.

It is with joy that we followed live images of the release of Brazil’s former President Lula da Silva from incarceration.
