The real battle going on in Brazil is over the issues of petroleum, privatization and labor reforms. The PT Party is promising to undo all of these changes that have happened since the coup. That's the real electoral battle. It's not really about Lula, it's about two competing visions for government.

Live from São Paulo, Brian Mier reports on the next stage in the right's attack against Brazil's rule of law - as the judiciary ends the political candidacy of political prisoner and election frontrunner Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, killing the country's best chance at reversing the coup-governments massive campaign of privatization, welfare cuts and weakened labor protection.

Brian recently interviewed UN Human Rights Committee Vice President Sarah Cleveland about Lula and Brazil's election for the news channel Brasil 247.
