(en) Brazilian Anarchist Coordination [CAB]: 25 years of the Carandiru Massacre: Do not forget, it still happens! (pt) [machine translation]

Date Sat, 6 Oct 2018 08:33:39 +0300

We do not forget ... ---- The 2 of October of 1992 were marked by the greater slaughter that the Brazilian State realized through the Military Police in a prison. A total of 111 people were killed in Carandiru, 89 of them still awaiting the first hearing, all sentenced to death when São Paulo governor Luiz Antônio Fleury Filho gave the order through his security secretary, Pedro Franco de Campos, to the Military Police invade the prison to contain a riot in the pavilions of the prison. ---- The military police were present through the 1st Shock Battalion, headed by former commander of the Route, Antonio Chiari, 2nd Battalion, under the command of Edson Faroro, 3rd Battalion, under the command of Edson Faroro, Special Tactical Actions Group ( Gate), commanded by Major Wanderley Mascarenhas and the Special Operations Command (COE), leading the operation was Colonel Ubiratan Guimarães, at the invitation of Carandiru director José Ismael Pedrosa.

Most of the dead were killed at Pavilion 9, where the primary and detained defendants were awaiting their first hearing. After the massacre, the majority of those killed were shot in the head or chest, which confirms who were victims of summary executions.

No military police officer who participated in the slaughter was punished, although some were sentenced between 2013 and 2014, the sentencing sentence was annulled last year, of the 74 policemen who were indicted by the massacre, 58 were promoted and 7 continue to act in the streets of Sao Paulo.

... It still happens!

25 years after the greatest massacre in the history of the Brazilian penitentiary system, due to failures and negligence of the State, it is not known for sure the number of people imprisoned in Brazil is estimated to be more than 622 thousand people, which places Brazil as the fourth country which he has imprisoned most in the world.

The year that marks a quarter of a century of impunity for the Carandiru Massacre, recorded in its first fifteen days a number of dead that surpasses the Massacre of 1992, in the first half of January of 2017 Brazil already had more than 130 violent deaths in prisons , on the first day of the year 56 people were killed in the prison complex Anísio Jobim, a private prison in Amazonas administered by Umanizzare Prisional Management and Services Ltda., followed by the massacre at the Monte Cristo Agricultural Penance in Roraima, which left 33 dead, and after the massacre in the penitentiary of Alcaçuz in Rio Grande do Norte, leaving 26 dead, other deaths happened in São Paulo, Santa Catarina, Paraná.

The overcrowding of the prisons has created Dantesque scenes, as in the case of Rio Grande do Sul where people accumulate in front of shacks handcuffed inside vehicles, on stair handrails and even in garbage dumps await for weeks the release of places in prisons.

Massacres such as the Carandiru or the more recent leap to the eye, gain visibility, because there is no hiding hundreds of dead at a single time, but the state has quieter devices to operate its necropolítica, when the state does not kill, it leaves to die through untreated diseases that spread through prisons such as tuberculosis, whose uncontrolled spread in prisons has placed Brazil on the list of the 20 countries with the highest incidence of tuberculosis in the world.

Faced with the massacres and overcrowding, there are those who affirm the existence of a crisis, thus accusing a malfunction of the Brazilian prison system, which some insist on calling a crisis, we call it the State Project, because super-entrapment is just another side of the genocide of the black and peripheral people in Brazil.

For the end of the genocide of the black and peripheral people!

For a society free from prisons!
