Today, February 25, the Black Star News show, on WBAI 99.5 FM, will have a discussion with Michael Brooks of the "Michael Brooks Show" about Brazil's former President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva. Brooks on his recent trip to Brazil interviewed Lula. Both are pictured above.

The Black Star News show starts at 3:00 PM, every Tuesday on listener-supported WBAI. www.wbai.org

On November 8, 2019, Brazil's former president Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, a.k.a. Lula, walked out of jail after 580 days when the country’s supreme court ruled he’d been held unlawfully having not exhausted appeals on his alleged corruption case.

Lula played a significant role in turning Brazil into an emerging power with rapid economic growth and poverty reduction. Polls showed he would have won elections and returned as president in the 2018 vote hadn’t his political career been sidetracked by the conviction and 12-year sentence. Lula has maintained the case against him was politically motivated and that he’s innocent.

Upon his release, Lula said: “They did not imprison a man. They tried to kill an idea….Brazil did not improve, Brazil got worse. The people are going hungry. The people are unemployed. The people do not have formal jobs. People are working for Uber – they’re riding bikes to deliver pizzas.”

What are Lula’s plans? What does he have to say about Brazil’s President Jair Bolsonaro, also described as “Brazil’s Donald Trump”? What does he have to say about BRICS, which was emerging as a third force to break the stranglehold that Western institutions like the World Bank and IMF have over the developing world?

Since we can’t get Lula on “Black Star News Show” on WBAI 99.5 FM on Tuesday Feb. 25 at 3PM (Eastern Time), we have the next best thing—and Interview with Michael Brooks, host of “The Michael Brooks” show, who recently returned from a trip to Brazil where he interviewed President Lula. Michael will deliver his “Report From President Lula” on my show today. Michael will also discuss Bernie Sanders path to victory—he’s been a supporter of the Vermont Senator from the getgo.

Please tune in Tuesday Feb. 25 or listen to the livestream via www.wbai.org
