Join our latest live Zoom event in which we discuss how Brazilian far-right president Jair Bolsonaro’s reckless handling of the coronavirus crisis could mean him losing his grip on power.

Bolsonaro has doubled down on his rhetorical attacks against opponents, encouraging anti-democracy protests and using the response to coronavirus as a political instrument to consolidate his base and up the stakes for those who would seek to unseat him. But how long can he hold on? And what opportunities do current circumstances provide for the Left to exercise greater influence over Brazilian politics?
