Journalist José Bernardes hosts our weekly English-language show featuring the latest news and fun facts about Brazil - Screen capture/Brasil de Fato

This week on What’s Happening in Brazil, we report on the Anti-fascist and Anti-racist demonstrations that took over the Social Media, as well as the streets of Brazil. The Pro-democracy protests were severely repressed by the police.

The episode also reports on the Popular Agrarian Reform proposal launched by the Landless Rural Workers Movement (MST by its Brazilian Portuguese acronym) on Friday (5), mediated by leaderships of the movement, with the presence of artists, intellectuals and elected politicians.

The Culture Talk installment features a conversation with several religious entities and their leaderships on their initiatives to promote people’s faith in times of pandemic and social isolation.

The Story of the Week is about Solidarity Networks that have united forces to assist the most vulnerable populations of Brazilian outskirts during the COVID-19 pandemic.
