Brazil has seen huge attacks on its poor and a fightback from hundreds of thousands as two mega-events – the World Cup in 2014 and the Olympics in 2016 – inflict themselves on a country of huge inequalities.

Speakers: Writer Mike Marqusee and Rio resident Ali Sargent will talk about the politics of these “trojan horses for neoliberalism” and popular protest against them.

Public meeting hosted by rs21 North London and International Socialist Network London.

free: Tuesday 10 June, 7pm to 9pm

Venue: Unity Church, 277A Upper St, Islington N1 2TZ, London
