Time to Take on Brazilian Anti Gay Prez?

29/06/2020

Fighting the Bolsanaro government in Brazil is something that a considerable number of LGBTQ people will want to do. The current incumbent of the Brazilian Presidency is far to the right of most international figures, and has expressed support for the massacres and disappearances that characterised the South American dictatorships of the seventies and eighties, such as General Pinochet and General Galtieri, who installed brutal military authoritarianism. Bolsanaro has persecuted indigenous people's groups, trade unions and has expressed bizarre ideas about bulldozing the country's precious environmental resources such as the Amazon basin. Martin Empsom, writing in last week's issue of the left wing weekly Socialist Worker, says that everyone wanting to draw a firm line in the sand against Bolsanaro can do so by backing the MST, that is the Brazilian Landless Workers Movement. One of its strategies is to occupy disused land and train families to farm the land. However, now a judge with close ties to the Bolsanaro regime has granted an eviction order against 77 families living on the Luiz Beltrame de Castro settlement in the state of Sao Paulo. In response, the MST movement has asked for international solidarity. To find out what you can do, visit MSTBrazil.org, or follow the links from our website.
