We present an interview with Brazlian anarchist militant Hugo Souza with his opinions on the current situation and advice for leftists in the US. As Brazil is rocked by economic recession, parliamentary coups and scandals, into the void has stepped far right-wing presidential candidate Jair Bolsonaro. Winning the first found of voting earlier this month Bolsonaro is headed to the second round on October 28 where he will face off against the Workers Party (PT) candidate Fernando Haddad. Often compared to Trump, Bolsonaro is actually far more dangerous with a much more coherent and reactionary ideology and in praise for torture and Brazil’s previous military dictatorship.

On the evening of May 12th, 2018 – the day before Mother’s Day – our friend and comrade Pablo accepted a bike courier gig that would offer extra money for working in inclement weather at night – app based food delivery service Caviar. In the darkness and rain of that night his tire became lodged in a storm drain leading to the fatal accident which took his life. Pablo was 34 years old. He was full of life and love. He influenced and deeply touched the lives of so many. His many close friends, comrades, family members and loved ones will forever miss him, but carry him with them as they were all deeply influenced by his beautiful heart, mind and life.

In a move to expand the atmosphere of repression against the left, a bill specifically targeting anti-fascist or “Antifa” protesters was introduced to the Judiciary Committee in the House of Representatives in June. Titled the “Unmasking Antifa Act of 2018,” the bill is sponsored by Republican Rep. Daniel Donovan of New York (@RepDanDonovan) and calls for fines and prison up to 15 years for anyone who “injures, oppresses, threatens, or intimidates any person” while wearing a mask or disguise. Police and law enforcement are, of course, exempted.
