Across the globe the rise of far right populism has been seen as what Fintan O’Toole called the stages of pre-fascism. But our guest in the tortoise shack, award winning journalist and resident of Belo Horizinte, Brazil, Ewan MacKenna, tells us that he is witnessing real fascism on the rise.
In advance of the Brazilian election we decided to catch up with Ewan and get the story from someone who has a ringside seat to what are deeply worrying changes for both the people of Brazil and the wider global community.
Ewan breaks down some of the issues with President Elect Jair Bolsonaro, in what we think is the scariest interview we’ve ever done. A must listen.
