Live from São Paulo, Brian Mier reports on reports on anti-austerity, pro-public housing marches across Brazil, explains why president Dilma Rousseff's suvival-motivated rightward shift might be too far for some on Brazil's left, and sees political fatigue and partisan entrenchment that almost reminds him of being back in the US.

Brian wrote the Brasil Wire article Against Austerity: World Habitat Day.
