Brian Mier

The future of Brazil's young democracy is at stake: An election report from the edge of fascism.

Live from São Paulo, Brian Mier reports on the stakes of Sunday's elections in Brazil - from the frontrunning neofascist candidate Jair Bolsonaro's existential threat to Brazil's young democracy, to the mass online disinformation campaign and complicit Northern mainstream press that made his sudden rise possible.

Brian translated the recent articles Bolsonaro and the Institutionalization of Necropolitics and International Interests and the destruction of Brazilian Democracy for New Socialist.



Tina Vasquez

On the migrant caravan, and the long road to abolishing ICE.

Journalist Tina Vasquez reports on the political realities in front and behind the migrant caravan traveling from Central America to the US, and explores the domestic fight to abolish ICE and demilitarize both borders and immigration policy under a bipartisan system built on violence, nativism and impunity for an out of control agency.

Tina wrote the article Abolish ICE: Beyond a Slogan for Rewire.News and New York Review Daily.
