Hi dear allies,
The BRICS summit in Xiamen from 3-5 Sept has many controversies.
There is growing worry that the prior strength of Brazil and India on
provision of generic medicines will be weakened by the new
pro-globalization rhetoric, not to mention the Trump regime's erratic
crack-downs. The rhetoric is bubbling up through various circuits (let
me know offlist if you want our brics-from-below newsletter) - but seen
from your expert eyes, what are the trends?
We will have a BRICS People's Forum again this year - in Hong Kong since
Xiamen is too repressive. What are the kinds of ideas we need to keep in
mind, and alliances to forge? (BRICS Is hosted in 2018 by South Africa,
for those who want to engage in a more open space.)
