Peace & Justice Project in Brazil as Lula wins presidential election

As Lula sweeps to a stunning victory in the second round run-off of the Brazilian presidential election, the Peace & Justice Project and Jeremy Corbyn observe this landmark win for social justice and democracy in Latin America.

Alongside Progressive International, the Peace & Justice Project and Jeremy Corbyn have been in Brazil to observe the second round run-off of the presidential election, which has now been sensationally won by Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva of the Partido dos Trabalhadores (Workers' Party) with 50.9% of the vote, defeating the far-right incumbent, Jair Bolsonaro.

During our visit to Brazil, the Peace & Justice Project, joined by Coventry South MP Zarah Sultana, has met with numerous trade unions and worker-led organisations, as well as our patron Noam Chomsky, to find out more about how working class communities have united to build electoral success for Lula.
