Brazil in the pandemic

Submitted by AWL on 27 June, 2020 - 10:33

Join us for our weekly online meeting, Sunday 26 July, from 6.30pm where Luiza Xavier will discuss the political background to current events in Brazil.

Brazil is now one of the epicentres of the coronavirus pandemic with 1000 per day dying for the third day in a row on 20 June, and more than 50,659 killed by the virus as of 22 June.

The far-right Bolsonaro government's irrational response to the pandemic has triggered political turmoil.

Brazil is susceptible to the pandemic because of its weak social support system, overcrowded prison population, and the urban poor living in overcrowded intergenerational households. Brazil desperately needs a government that can tackle these inequalities and injustices. And Brazil's labour movement, working class and marginalised peoples need our international solidarity.
