*A report from Brazil under Bolsonaro*
Gary Dotterman
The world did not end when the right-wing populist Bolsonaro took office in
Brazil last December. In fact, his rise has prompted moves to greater unity
in the Left. Gary Dotterman reports on developments. Gary lives in Minas
Gerais, the most industrialized (and unionized) state in Brazil. He is the
former long-time director of the CME.

Steve Revilak
Documentary-style drama showing the events that led up to the tragic
incident on January 30, 1972 in the Northern Ireland town of Derry when a
protest march led by civil rights activist Ivan Cooper was fired upon by
British troops, killing 13 protesters and wounding 14 more. On January 30,
1972, in the Northern Irish town of Derry, a peaceful protest march led by
civil rights activist Ivan Cooper (James Nesbitt) turned into a slaughter.
British soldiers suddenly opened fire on the defenseless crowd, killing 13
people and wounding 14 more. Shot as if a documentary, this film follows
Ivan throughout the day as it chronicles the events leading up to the
horrific incident and the bloodied, confused aftermath that followed. Watch
the trailer.  <https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zltaftDQtP4>
