Brazil at a crossroad; the campaign for democracy

Brazilians current president Temer is enacting a militarisation of Brazil. Ten human rights activists have been murdered in the last five months, including prominent socialist, lesbian councilor Marielle Franco. 

Alongside this attack on democracy is a vicious privatization campaign aiming to transfer wealth from the poor to the rich. 

Brazilians are responding through mass protests, including hundreds of thousands rising up demanding justice for Marielle Franco.
