Brazil's presidential elections

Brazil will vote on October 2 to elect a new president in a scenario of strong political and social polarisation in which the debate between the two main candidates has been fierce and marked by violence between supporters. Polls indicate the advantage of former president Inácio Lula da Silva, but the incumbent, Jair Bolsonaro, promises he will "go to war" to stay in the presidency with accusations of electoral manipulation. Should no candidate reach 50% of the vote, Brazil will vote on a second round.

Iran Protests

The death of Mahsa Amini on 16 September after being detained by the morality police sparked a broad wave of protests in Iran that quickly evolved into a movement of protests against the regime. Despite the violent repression of the regime and the execution of many detained protesters, the movement has not died down.
