    Consisting almost entirely of excerpts from the TV program 60 minutos1982 summarizes the media campaign that took place over the 74 days of war, when Argentine troops tried to take the island back from the British. We watch TV anchormen ask viewers to donate money for weapons, inspire them to sing the national anthem at home, and welcome government leaders as heroes as they “spontaneously” show up at the studio to celebrate the importance of the mission for the fatherland. +READ

    29/11/19 BRAZILIE: LAND OP DE DOOL?

    Panelgesprek op het Festival van de Gelijkheid
    Ernesto Rodríguez Amari (journalist en politicoloog)
    Alma De Walsche (voormalig journalist MO* magazine)
    Johan Verberckmoes (professor Geschiedenis KU Leuven)
    Fábio de Castro (CEDLA-UvA)
    Lode Delputte (journalist & leerkracht) leidt dit gesprek in goede banen

    Dit jaar sloeg de vlam in de pan in Brazilië. Figuurlijk met het aantreden van de extreemrechtse president Jair Bolsonaro, letterlijk toen er meer dan 40.000 branden in het Amazonegebied woedden. Het land was in 2019 niet uit het nieuws weg te slaan, maar het rommelde er al veel langer. Om te begrijpen wat er vandaag in Brazilië aan de hand is, moeten we bijvoorbeeld ook kijken naar de manier waarop de Portugese kolonisatie het land getekend heeft en naar de invloed van extreme inkomensongelijkheid. +INFO
