Every week, "What's Happening in Brazil" host Pamela Oliveira brings English-speaking audiences the latest news about our country / Screen capture/Brasil de Fato

On this week’s episode of What’s Happening in Brazil, we spoke with activists who explain how the housing movement in the country’s biggest city can manage to organize their struggle amid persecution and criminalization.

The strike staged by oil giant Petrobras workers and the Real Food Festival are the highlights of this week’s News Update.

The Culture Talk segment features Lélia Gonzalez, one of the most prominent voices against racism and sexism in Brazil, and an author whose work Angela Davis says “the world should know.”

And this week’s Brazilianism will show you a recipe for a delicious yam couscous from Northeast Brazil.
