Description:
Rochester Committee on Latin America presents our January Program: 'Brazil in Crisis' Speaker: Darien Lamen January 2nd at 7:00 PM - Downtown United Presbyterian Church Facebook Event Page Website Event Page The recent election of authoritarian demagogue Jair Bolsonaro as President of Brazil signals a deepening crisis of democracy and capitalism in Brazil.

He is currently working on a documentary about the role of liberation theology in the struggle for land reform in Amazonia. -- January 2nd at 7:00 PM. All programs are held at Downtown United Presbyterian Church (121 North Fitzhugh St., Rochester) and are free and open to the public.
