The five BRICS countries - Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa - have had tumultuous years. In Brazil through most of December, Thando Manzi witnessed the regroupment of progessives in unions, communities and social movements; he compares conditions in favelas to his home of Cato Manor. In Hong Kong, the culmination of the huge democracy protests during November-December included the arrest of Au Loong Yu. In the other BRICS, tens of thousands of protests took place, and John Devenish maintains a brics-from-below observatory of social unrest.

Thando Manzi is a geography student at UKZN and Dennis Brutus Community Scholar; Devenish maintains CCS's website; Au Loong Yu is the editor of China Labor Net and author of China’s Rise: Strength and Fragility (London: Merlin Press, 2013).
