Brazil’s 2013 protests against cuts and censorship

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. In June of 2013, the Brazilian streets became scenes of protest. Our next speaker, armed with smartphones and cameras, brought the sights and sounds of these protests to the world’s attention. Together with his group of citizen-journalists, Midia Ninja, he broadcasted the narrative of the Brazilian people. Bruno Torturra is a journalist and coordinated Midia Ninja, an independent group of journalists known for sociopolitical activism. This group was notable for its “no cuts – no censorship” coverage of the 2013 nationwide protests in Brazil.
