Summary: Jeff Frank is the National Coordinator for the Friends of the MST (the Brazilian Landless Workers Movement) and has spent a substantial time in Brazil working with this dynamic peasant movement. He is also a National Lawyers Guild attorney and has worked with Brazilian attorneys to provide support in bringing international pressure to expose the legislative coup in Brazil.

He speaks on the impeachment of Dilma Rousseff in 2016 as part of a soft parliamentary coup; the conviction of Lula and barring his running for election in order to complete the coup; and the first round of the election and what it portends for Brazil. With declining profits, due to a retracting economy and falling commodity prices, international capital wanted an end to the social programs that the Workers Party had implemented
following the dictatorship, which now cut into their profit margins and they were no longer willing to support.
