Out with Bolsonaro, the Military, and the Coup Plotters! 

President Bolsonaro of Brazil, one of Trump’s strongest allies in Latin America, is on the chopping block. He bungled the response to the coronavirus crisis so thoroughly that even much of his base has turned against him. Now, a wide spectrum of Brazilian society, from the capitalists to mass media to the far left, want him to step down. But, Vice President Hamilton Mourão is no better.

Brazilian Socialists Repudiate Bolsonaro’s Celebration of ‘64 Coup

On Sunday, Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro ordered the celebration of Brazil’s 1964 coup, which established a military dictatorship. Below, we reprint a repudiation of this from Left Voice’s sister website in Brazil, Esquerda Diário.

A Decisive Step in the Reactionary Right Wing Coup

The Brazilian Congress approved a legislative coup against President Dilma Rousseff, with speeches that proved just how right wing the impeachment process is.

How should the Left position itself facing the operation against Lula and the attempts to impeach President Dilma?

At Brazilian workplaces and universities the biggest topic of conversation is the police operation in the 24th phase of “Operation Lava Jato” (Lava Jato is portuguese for car wash, but is a term used for money laundering), which is forcing ex-President Lula to testify. This comes alongside news of a still unknown plea bargain with Delcídio do Amaral, a Senator in the Workers Party who was arrested in 2015 for accepting bribes from Petrobras.
