917. Brazilian Democracy in the Balance

This weekend Brazil heads back to the polls and it’s not unfair to say that there’s a lot at stake. Supporters of President Jair Bolsonaro and his opponent Lula Da Silva have clashed and people have been murdered as the world looks on wondering which way the scales will tip. Inflation, inequality and food insecurity are all on the ballot, as well as the neoliberal autocrat Bolsonaro versus the Workers Party’s legacy in Brazil.
Joining me to discuss all of this, the impact it can have on the Region and what is potentially ahead this weekend is journalist and our regular Latin American contributor, Nicholas Dale Leal.
