“Brazilian Workers’ Party leader (and Brazil’s president from 2003–2010) Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva will face off against Brazil’s current, far-right president, Jair Bolsonaro, in October. During Lula’s first two terms, as part of the ‘pink tide’ that was sweeping Latin America, Lula tried to reform the onslaught of neoliberalism in Brazil. If elected again, Lula will face a new challenge: a Brazil transformed by the far right. Back in 2004, Kevin Y. Kim reviewed Lula and the Workers’ Party in Brazil for In These Times, published on the anniversary of Lula’s inauguration.” (09/22/22)
