  • "People want to break the system - and the great symbol to break the system was Bolsonaro" – Rodrigo Amorim, MP and friend of new President Bolsonaro

    Jair Bolsonaro vaulted to power on a pledge to smash corruption and endemic violent crime that sees around 60,000 in Brazil murdered each year. Bolsonaro lets police shoot to kill, his army of supporters love him for it. It seems not to matter that the former soldier praises past military dictatorships, or that he trash-talks women, or that he is a homophobe.

    But there was one killing that’s become a rallying point for those who oppose the new president. Black, gay, favela-raised politician Marielle Franco was a fierce critic of a policing system that kills a reported 5000 people a year.

    A year ago she and her driver were gunned down by unknown assailants. Just this month, two ex-military police were arrested in connection with the killings.

    In death, Marielle Franco looms as large as she did in life. As preparations get under way for the spectacular annual Carnaval, huge flags are unfurled bearing her image. She has become a heroine and galvanising figure for opponents of the new order.

    In Rio, reporter Sally Sara moves from wealthy gated communities to crime-infested favelas to explore why yet another democracy has turned to a hard-right absolutist leader.

                    I am happy I watched that, because I was at that Carnaval and didn't realize it was so politically charged.
                    Ignorance was bliss though.

                            You seem not tell the full story that a communist lula made Brazil more of a shit hole. And bolsanario and the military are stuck cleaning up for the socialist .

                              Lmao Brazil wouldn't have to be like this if the previous government's weren't so corrupt and useless. They made Brazil this way and someone has to come clean it up. It has to happen. This wasn't Jair's fault this is the fault of previous Brazilian government's for not acting and taking responsible action.

                                Brazil is a false utopia. Brazil is a false multicultural utopia. Brazil is false when they say that the law is equal for all... that the opportunities is equal...If a white teenager is busted with 3 grams of weed, they call him a user. But, if he is a Black teenager, they will say he is a drug dealer. Brazil 🇧🇷 (( THE PRECONCEPTION OF NOT HAVE PRECONCEPTION= O PRECONCEITO DE NÃO TER PRECONCEITO))

                                Being Portuguese, I feel ashamed that I never quite understood the meaning of samba. I now stand corrected and have gain another appreciation of its place in history. And when it comes to slave trade, my country is the one responsible for the majority of all African people ferried and sold across the Atlantic, throughout the Americas. That's something we need to be honest about.

                                    Great video edtion, but next time put more people's prespectives from both sides. I mean, if more than 60 % voted to Bolsonaro, I Gess a lot of those came from the favelas. I follow a lot of brazzilian news and I think you focoused too little in topics, like goverment corruption, Labor market, and Goverment Political instability. Hug from Portugal.

                                            *previews left wing government, when had brazil ever a left wing government? do you think dilma rouseff was left wing cause she was a woman? if brazil had really a left wing government, it would look more like denmark and not like this, with poverty and crime everywhere because of corruption, these are the same people who think hillary clinton is ''left wing'' so awkward*

                                              This is the biggest lie that have ever heard and seen....do not believe a word against Bolsonaro. He is honest and is fighting against corruption that has its roots in the left wing politics. This video is pure manipulation. Rio de Janeiro is ruined by drug dealers holding hands with the local politicians. Again, Bolsonaro is trying to fight this sickness that killed 60 thousand people in 2017, when Bolsonaro wasn’t the president. Since the Left took over the country, 24 years ago, the country has only fell down. This Marielle was killed by milícia which has connection with the left party.

                                                Sad video to say the least, it's April of 2019 and not even a single moment is sad that violence decreased in Brazil by 25%! Congrats ABC, you guys suck. And next time, try to do a video on other cities of Brazil and interview people from other Political Parties as well. David Miranda is married to the guy who is sharing Fake News in Brazil right now...

                                                  Chile was one, if not the only one, of the latin American countries that abolished slavery before it started, thus there were no blacks or mulatos in Chile, just Castizos (Caucasian + mestizos) & Amerindians. Since 2014 more than 1.5 million Caribbeans have entered my country, mostly illegally, from Colombia, Haiti, Dominican Republic, Venezuela and Cuba...and guess what? Diseases we eradicated 100 years ago came back, we became one of the countries with the biggest level of HIV/Aids, when 10 years earlier we had the lowest, crime has ski rocketed, sicarios, motochorros, narco traffic and prostitution have plagued Chile...and unfortunately most people from those countries are either black or mulato. Sometimes no matter what opportunities people are given, in a quiet and developed country (or on its way), clean and quiet country like Chile, they continue to do what comes naturally. The biggest problem with Bolsonaro is that he is a sionist, in my opinion.

Good, Bolsonaro represents what Brazil actually is, we love god, we love justice, we don't care about LGBTXWZY stuff, and the most fun part: We want criminals rotting on the ground.

Probably because he's a person of color - see how racism crosses borders? It has happened before and not too long ago - exactly in London -, another Brazilian person of color, a young student named (if memory serves me) Jean Charles was actually shot down dead on the spot... being completely innocent - look up his murder by the London police.
