‘A country in agony’ addresses the Brazilian situation since President Jair Bolsonaro took office

The video, “A country in agony” was produced jointly with the Process of Networking and Dialogue for Human Rights Monitoring in Brazil and addresses the Brazilian situation since President Jair Bolsonaro took office.

It does not provide answers, on the contrary, it aims to question what will remain following the dismantling taking place in Brazil.  Can democracy exist without the Rule of Law?

It portrays the fragility of Brazilian democracy, questioning the country’s uncertain destiny.  It also draws attention to this moment of the destruction of the Democratic Rule of Law and the rise in inequalities in Brazil.  The video, launched on 17 September, can be accessed here:
