Brazil's Rousseff to address impeachment in UN trip

Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff speaks during a news conference with international press at Planalto Palace in Brasilia on April 19, 2016Brasília (AFP) – Brazil’s President Dilma Rousseff flew to New York on Thursday to sign a global climate change pact but she will use the international stage to denounce efforts to impeach her. The opposition criticized Rousseff’s plans to address the issue at the United Nations, days after the lower house of Congress sent impeachment proceedings to the Senate, which is expected to vote on opening a trial by mid-May. Rousseff is going to the UN to sign the climate deal on Friday, but a government official told AFP that her speech would include “one sentence” about the crisis back home that has left her fighting for her political life.
