Manufacturing Dissent Since 1996
New interviews throughout the week

Brazil's left pushes back against Dilma Rousseff's rightward concessions.


She's given them everything they wanted. Even if there is no coup, no impeachment, it doesn't matter anymore, because there is a neoliberal running the economy now, and they're cutting all the social programs. In a way, it seems like the conservatives have won.

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.
