Military police in the “favelas” of Rio de Janeiro


Brazil today and yesterday. How can we think the political evolution of Brazil from Portugal?

A necessary debate when we perceive, increasingly better, the weaknesses of less consolidated democracies and their inability to avoid their own destruction: the vote that maintains them is also the vote that can destroy them.

A debate promoted by the «Coletivo Andorinha», in partnership with the Aljube Museum.
