Eric Araújo

Brazil is going through many crises at the same time. Not to mention the pandemic, politics became a war zone after the Supreme Court started an investigation on a few president’s supporters about the existence of an organisation to spread fake news and threats towards the members of the court. That’s the topic of the news published on Gazeta do Povo, one of the mainstream media in Brazil. Guilherme de Carvalho invited prof. Eric Araújo to expose his opinions on the investigations and the potential rupture with the freedom of speech’s right. You can read the news (in Portuguese) at Guilherme’s column.
