DC Forum -- The Right Wing-Coup in Brazil: The People’s Resistance and the role of the United States

June 03, 2016 at 7pm - 10pm

FEATURED GUEST SPEAKERS
Members of the Brazilian Expats for Democracy:
- Aline C. Piva
- Juliana Moraes
- Marcos Vinicius Chillato Leite

A parliamentary coup led by Brazil’s far right has successfully suspended Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff from the presidency for 180 days and a puppet government is now in power. 

During his first week in office, United States-backed interim president Michel Temer has eliminated the Ministry of Culture and the Ministry of Women, Racial Equality and Human Rights, along with seven other ministries. He has also replaced the formerly progressive cabinet with an all-white and all-male cabinet flush with ultra-right and militarist credentials. 

In response, large coalitions of parties, organizations and social movements have formed to fight back against the coup, and have vowed to stay in the streets to demand justice and Dilma’s legal and democratic right to return to office.

Join us for a presentation by members of the Brazilian Expats for Democracy followed by a discussion on the recent developments in Brazil as well as the broader right-wing reaction recently being waged throughout Latin America as a way to roll back the clock on the leftward shift.
