August 2017: Portal de La Izquierda’s Newsletter (Brazil)


From Brazil, we suggest to the readers of the “Portal de la Izquierda” the texts selected below that show what conjuncture we are going through. The American continent enters a new cycle, that socialists need to understand with all their inequalities to intervene. Two recent events in this month of August point to two significant features of this new cycle: the strong anti-fascist resistance in the streets of the United States, led by leftist organizations and social movements in the United States (DSA, Black Lives Matter, ISO, IWW), a heroic national strike of teachers in Peru, against the government of PPK and outside the trade union bureaucracy of the Patria Roja, which has been leaving very rich lessons for all Latin American teachers.
