UBC Journalism Investigation Leads to Arrests in Brazil

A UBC Journalism investigative project has led to the arrest of 18 people in Brazil. Three journalism students travelled to Brazil to look into the murder of Indigenous Chief Nisio Gomes. He and his people, like many in Brazil, have been in a protracted land dispute with local farmers. UBC journalism students Calyn Shaw and Sam Eifling joined us for more on the story. It was their investigation that led to the arrests in Brazil yesterday.
