Brazil’s An Anti-Environment and Anti-Science Policy

This episode of What’s Happening in Brazil reports on Brazil’s environmental issues, from the wildfires in the Amazon to the man-made environmental disasters caused by predatory mining.

Our “Culture Talk” is about Ilu Obá de Min, an all-female drum band that honors Afro-Brazilian culture. And the “Brazilianism” segment will show you acarajé, a popular spicy street food from Brazil’s northeast region that is deep fried in red palm oil, known as dendê.

All What’s Happening in Brazil episodes are available at Brasil de Fato‘s YouTube channel, where you’ll also find a special English-content playlist.
