Dilma Suspended: Coup Plotters March Ahead but Will Brazil Erupt?

Dilma Suspended: Coup Plotters March Ahead But Will Brazil Erupt? 
On today's episode of Loud & Clear, host Brian Becker is joined by professor Dr. Francisco Dominguez to discuss the vote in Brazil’s Senate to move ahead with impeachment proceedings against President Dilma Rousseff, days after the acting speaker of the Lower House had annulled the process.

Dilma now has to step aside for six months during a trial process. What does it mean for the country's poor and working-class population that makes up the base of Dilma's supporters?

The U.S. military budget and plan for 2017, otherwise known as the National Defence Authorization Act (NDAA), has been under review this week by the Senate Armed Services Committee. What can we expect next year in the budget of the country that spends by far the most on its military of any state in the world? Becker is joined by political analyst Eric Draitser to unpack the NDAA.

Protests are taking place around the world against fossil fuels. The two-week global wave of action reaches its high point this weekend with several events organized by environmental activists in the United States. Lindsay Meimar, communications director for environmental organization, joins Becker to explain the importance of the movement against fossil fuels and whether the recent climate change agreement that was signed at the United Nations has meaningful implications.
