On January 26, 2019, India celebrates its 71st Republic Day. For this historic day, the far-right wing Narendra Modi government has invited Brazilian president Jair Bolsonaro as a guest of honour. It’s a match made in right-wing heaven – two leaders with a record of dividing their people, attacking the left and progressive sections and submitting to US interests. The Indian left is on the streets against this visit. In this episode of Around the World in 8 minutes, we look at these protests and strikes in Colombia and South Africa.
