  4. As Corruption Engulfs Brazil's "Interim" President, Mask Has Fallen Off Protest Movement
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2016
    Momentum for the impeachment of Brazil's democratically elected president, Dilma Rousseff, was initially driven by large, flamboyant street protests of citizens demanding her removal. Although Brazil's dominant media endlessly glorified (and incited) these green-and-yellow-clad protests as an organic citizen movement, evidence recently emerged that protests groups were covertly funded by opposition parties. Still, there is no doubt that millions of Brazilians participated in marches demanding Rousseff's ouster, claiming they were motivated by anger over her and her party’s corruption. But from the start, there were all sorts of reasons to doubt this storyline and to see that these protesters were (for the most part) not opposed to corruption, but simply devoted to removing from power the center-left party that won four straight national elections.

  39. A historic turning point in Brazil
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2016
    President Dilma Rousseff's suspension is a historic turning point in Brazil -- the end of an era of Workers' Party (PT) national governments that began in 2002 with the election of Lula. The PT won four presidential elections, two with Lula (2002 and 2006) and two with Dilma (2010 and 2014). This political crisis and historic turning point is intertwined with an equally deep economic crisis -- in 2015 GDP shrank by 3.8 percent in Brazil and, taking into account IMF projections for 2016, GDP might shrink by a further 3.5 percent. These data suggest that now there is an economic crisis similar to the crisis of 1929-31, when Brazilian GDP shrank by 8.1 percent.

    Is the United States a force for democracy? William Blum serves up a forensic overview of U.S. foreign policy spanning sixty years. For those who want the details on the U.S.'s most famous actions (Chile, Cuba, Vietnam, to name a few), and for those who want to learn about lesser-known efforts (France, China, Bolivia, Brazil, for example), this book provides a window on what U.S. foreign policy goals really are. "If you flip over the rock of American foreign policy of the past century, this is what crawls out… invasions … bombings … overthrowing governments … occupations … suppressing movements for social change … assassinating political leaders … perverting elections … manipulating labor unions … manufacturing “news” … death squads … torture … biological warfare … depleted uranium … drug trafficking … mercenaries … It’s not a pretty picture.

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2006
    In June 2005, the first allegations of a rogue politician in a rightwing party in coalition with Brazil's governing Workers' Party (PT) seemed spurious enough. The politician himself, Roberto Jefferson, had a long history of allegations of corruption, and of narrowly escaping indictment in Brazil's last corruption crisis in 1993. According to celebrity magazines, he had had a makeover, including plastic surgery, before coming forward with the allegations of a "payment for votes" scheme in congress in which the ruling PT doled out a monthly allowance for sympathetic politicians in congress.
