Brian Mere – Media Blackout on Brazil’s Anti-Bolsonaro Protests

Summary:
Why are New York Times and Guardian downplaying resistance to Brazil’s far-right president? The media is covering the Hong Kong riots but has virtually completely ignored the riots in Brazil. Hundreds of thousands of Brazilians took to the streets of 211 cities on August 13 to protest far-right Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro’s austerity cuts and privatization plans for the public university system. It was the third in series of national education strikes, dubbed “the Education Tsunamis,” organized by national students unions together with teachers unions affiliated with the Central Ùnica de Trabalhadores (Unified Workers Central/CUT)—the second-largest labor union confederation in the Americas.
