WGTN screening: Football Rebels – Brazil

WGTN screening: Football Rebels – Brazil

In 1980 during the military dictatorship in Brazil, the hugely popular Socrates, the captain of the Selecao and of Corinthians, used football to promote democracy while scoring goals. Popularly known as “The Doctor”, Socrates was a brilliant player, an intelligent revolutionary and a hero who stood up for what was right. With the help of his fellow teammates, “The Doctor” transformed every match into a political statement.

His support for democracy helped a country under authoritarian rule to remember that the people too could have a voice.

Al-Jazeera documentary screened as part of Fightback's weekly "Introduction to Marxism" series, open to all:
