Brazil’s judiciary is in danger of turning the clock back on democracy

28 Mar

On Thursday 17 March, Brazilians tuned in to watch as former president Luiz Inácio “Lula” da Silva was sworn in as a cabinet minister. Then they went to use the toilet or get a drink, and by the time they came back his appointment had already been blocked by a judge.

It is possible that by the time you read this article Brazil will have experienced further convulsions and what happened on Thursday will already be a distant memory. The reason for this is that Brazil is currently fighting fire with fire. The firefighters pretend not to realise that if the country goes up in flames once and for all, everyone will get burned.
