Brazil textbooks ‘to be revised to deny 1964 coup’

Brazil’s Education Minister Ricardo Vélez says school textbooks will be revised so that children are taught “a wider version of history”.

Mr Vélez denies that the 1964 military ousting of democratically elected President João Goulart was a coup.

He also refers to the 21 years of military rule which followed as “a democratic regime by force”.

His comments come days after far-right President Jair Bolsonaro announced the coup’s anniversary would be celebrated.
