(en) Coordenação Anarquista Brasileira - CAB: For the freedom of Rooster and Gessica! Fire the genocides! (ca, de, it, pt)[machine translation]

Date Tue, 3 Aug 2021 09:50:27 +0300

The Brazilian Anarchist Coordination demands the immediate release of Paulo Galo and his companion Géssica, who were arrested this Wednesday, the 28th, accused of participating in the collective action that set fire to the statue of murderer and scout rapist Borba Gato, on Saturday, in Sao Paulo. ---- Temporary arrests are already absurd because the "victim" of the action is a concrete object. The episode gains doses of sadism with the arrest of Gessica, Rooster's partner, with whom he has a three-year-old daughter. Gessica wasn't even in the action, according to her supporters. ---- The fire in Borba Gato caused a scandal among the ruling classes, and no wonder. He represents the pioneers who, at the behest of the colonial government, captured, enslaved, tortured, raped and killed indigenous and African peoples, in order to establish control over territories and exploit bodies and land. These are the figures honored by those above: men who oppressed and exterminated. Burning down the statue representing one of these men, within a day of mobilization, is a political act that speaks for itself.
We also repudiate the discourse of a sector of the left that joins the State and the bourgeoisie in criminalizing action. It's the same sector that doesn't see problems in meeting with the PM to legitimize itself with the repression, establishing agreements on top of popular and combative movements.
While our people cry as victims of Covid and suffer from hunger, poverty, unemployment and extermination, those at the top mobilize the entire state apparatus for a statue. With the return to the streets of the popular movement, the Adjustment Police State is present with all its tools, which requires social fighters to redouble their attention with security and militant self-defense.
We sympathize with Gessica and Paulo Galo, and demand their immediate freedom!
May the genociders burn!
Brazilian Anarchist Coordination
