This week, Brasil de Fato’s English-language show What’s Happening in Brazil reports on the nationwide strike organized by Brazilian oil workers to protest against layoffs and the dismantling of the state-run oil giant Petrobras.
We also report on the demonstration staged by a Guarani indigenous community in the city of São Paulo, which occupied a property to protest against the felling of trees near their village.
The Story of the Week features the final installment of our three-part special series about the one-year anniversary of the Brumadinho dam disaster, the biggest man-made environmental disaster in Brazil’s history. A community leader, an environmental engineer, and a local resident spoke with Brasil de Fato about the mining giant Vale’s plan to store the toxic mud that poured from the dam in an open pit.
For this week’s Culture Talk segment, we sat down with female comics creators who spoke about their work, challenges, and the fact that they do not want to be stuck in the same old patterns of a once male-dominated field.
Finally, Brazilianism will show how easy it is to make a vegan rendition of one of Brazil’s most popular desserts: brigadeiro.
