(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL #282 - Brazil: Marielle Franco, Presente! (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Tue, 17 Apr 2018 08:57:27 +0300

On the night of March 14, Marielle Franco, was brutally executed by bullets, at the end of a debate with other black women, in the neighborhood of la Lapa in Rio de Janeiro. Anderson Pedro Gomes, the driver of the car where she was, was also murdered. ---- Marielle Franco was a feminist activist, black and lesbian, born in the favela of the Maré, particularly committed against racism, repression and police violence. For years she was fighting against the abuses of the Military Police of the State of Rio. City Councilor of the Party of Socialism and Freedom (PSOL, radical left) she recently became rapporteur of the commission to investigate the federal military intervention decreed by the government of Michel Temer to " ensure security " in the State of Rio . Four days before his death, Marielle denounced violent action of the 41 th Battalion of the Military Police in the favela of Acari, where police officers terrorized the inhabitants and inhabitants, penetrating violently into the houses and throwing young people in a pit full of detritus.

Decimate the black people
For our comrades in the Brazilian Anarchist Coordination (CAB), these assassinations " represent an action orchestrated by a terrorist state[...]that does not use masks to decimate the black people and to send a message to all those who stand against the massacre in the suburbs. The death of the comrade in the middle of a federal military intervention is not a coincidence or an error of the public security policy of the State of Rio.

The advance of repression, through this measure, is what authorizes this new and profound stage in state terrorism. This is a clearly constructed action: nine shots against the vehicle, an obvious case of summary execution of a people's fighter. The state, Brazilian capitalism and its institutions continue to function, with their historical profile of maintaining structural inequalities and direct or indirect perpetuation of barbarism. In this moment of pain, sadness and hatred, it is incumbent on us to bring all our solidarity to the families of Marielle and Anderson, to the comrades of the PSOL and to all those who struggle daily.[...]

Terrorist state ! For the end of the federal military intervention ! For memory, truth and justice ! Marielle Franco, with us ! "
