Brazil | Brazil election: defeat for humanity – victory for Bolsonaro, Trump and US imperialism

Jair Bolsonaro has won Brazil’s Presidential election in the final round. Bolsonaro has secured 55% of the vote, defeating the Workers Party candidate Fernando Haddad.

Bolsonaro has been propelled to victory by a sophisticated imperialist intervention coordinated by the US, in alliance with the right wing in Brazil. This imperialist intervention took the form of decapitating the left – starting with the Parliamentary coup against Dilma Rousseff in 2016 and then the imprisonment of Lula da Silva earlier this year. It also took the form of building up the far right candidate, Bolsonaro, in light of the collapse of Brazil’s traditional centre-right bourgeois political party, the Social Democracy Party (PSDB). Trump’s former chief strategist Steve Bannon was an advisor on Bolsonaro’s campaign and millions of dollars were given by international capital to spread inflammatory, reactionary fake news and slander against the Workers Party on the scale of a tsunami.
