April 8 – Bolsonaro – The Trump of the Tropics?

On New Year’s Day, Brazil’s new president, far-right and ex-parachutist Jair Bolsonaro, assumed office. The election has provoked numerous questions: how should we perceive the nationalist movement in Brazil? Why do its supporters keep attacking women, black and indigenous people? And how will Bolsonaro’s presidency leave the Amazon Rainforest?
