On this week's Global Research News Hour, we take a look behind the scenes and beyond the rhetoric of the current power struggle in Brazil.
In the first part of the show, we hear from independent geopolitical analyst, writer and author Pepe Escobar. The Brazilian born commentator provides his analysis of the real reasons behind the coup, the forces seeking to reverse the gains of the last decade, how and why Washington may be responsible for the current state of Affairs, and the prospects of a return to power of former president Lula Da Silva.

This interview is followed by an interview with John Ahniwanika Schertow, the Winnipeg-based writer, editor and publisher of the on-line media hub Intercontinental Cry. Schertow concentrates his analysis on some of the changes affecting Indigenous Brazilians under the new interim government.

. These include the roll back of measures protecting the environment from industrial and infrastructure development, as well as the possible elimination of a government body established as part of a shift away from genocidal policies toward the Indigenous population.
