Episode Info:

On this episode of Brazil Unfiltered James continues his conversation with Ivo Herzog, the son of slain journalist and symbol of Brazilian democracy, Vladimir Herzog. Vladimir Herzog was murdered by the Brazilian military in 1975, and the protests surrounding his death marked a turning point in the fall of Brazil's military dictatorship. Ivo now leads the Vladimir Herzog Institute, an NGO that protects journalists, promotes human rights education, and advocates for democracy in Brazil. James and Ivo discuss the Institute's mission and creation, the importance of a free press to democracy, and how the Institute continues the Herzog family legacy.  If you haven't listened to the first part of this conversation yet, you can do so here: [https://soundcloud.com/brazilunfiltered/fighting-for-democracy-and-making-meaning-from-tragedy] You can watch Ivo’s talk from his recent visit to the Watson Institute here: [www.youtube.com/watch?v=UfvvN8ZEE…&feature=youtu.be]
