Brazilian Cabaret

Montreal, June 7th at 8 pm at Kola Note

Friday 16 May 2003, by Catherine BINETTE

Dance the night away to Brazilian beats and more... at Alternatives’ Brazilian Cabaret on Saturday June 7th at Kola Note, with Paolo Ramos, Nico Beki, Kumpa’nia, capoeira Angola dancers and world music Dj Yacin. Tickets are on sale now!

The Cabaret is the closing event of the New Brazil Seminar, presented by Alternatives and the Perseo Abramo Foundation from Brazil,in collaboration with the Université du Québec à Montréal, and the Centre de recherches et d’études sur le Brésil de l’UQAM on June 6th and 7th at UQAM.

This event features the principal players in the much heralded Brazilian government, including:

- Miguel Rossetto, Agrarian Development Minister,
- Marco Aurelio Garcia, President Lula’s International relations advisor
- Paolo Vannuchi, President of the Ciudadania Institute
- Ricardo de Azevedo, Fundação Perseo Abramo representative.
- Raimunda Montero, Environment National Fund director

This is a unique opportunity to meet key government officials and discover not only what their platform means for Brazil and the rest of Latin America, but also the potential impact here in Canada.

In November 2002, more than 60% of Brazilians ushered in a new government that rode to victory on a platform of social justice, democracy and citizen engagement. The new President, Ignacio Lula Da Silva, is wasting little time - during his inauguration speech he highlighted the following priorities: overcoming hunger and social inclusion, administrative and agrarian reform, and revising foreign policy.

The goals are ambitious and the challenges are many: little financial flexibility, a tense and unpredictable international situation, and, of course, the greatest inequality between rich and poor of any country in the world. Find out why the new government argues that Brazil and its 180 million people are up to the task.

À propos de Catherine BINETTE

Latin America and the Caribbean

Catherine Binette has studied management and international development at McGill University. It took her only one solidarity experience with an indigenous community of Oaxaca, in Mexico, to confirm her interest in the dynamics of social movements and native peoples struggles in the Americas. At Alternatives since 2002, Catherine initially worked as the project officer and coordinator of the communications and mobilization program, where she concentrated mainly on the World Social Forum. After carrying out an internship in social economy in Brazil, she joined the international team and took charge of Alternatives projects in the Americas. She is particularly interested in innovative practices of solidarity economy and local development, as with the process of political transformation to which we assist in South America.
