(en) Resistência Popular Estudantil - RJ: IMMEDIATE FREEDOM FOR ROOSTER AND GESSICA! (ca, de, it, pt)[machine translation]

Date Sat, 7 Aug 2021 09:20:50 +0300

Today, thousands of app delivery people have spent more than 9 hours on the street in the rain, often with no covered or minimally heated places to wait for orders, unable to go to the bathroom and, most of the time, hungry. Also today, São Paulo police ordered the temporary arrest of Galo, his wife Géssica and the militant Biu, accused of allegedly taking part in the burning of the statue of Borba Gato, a scout, murderer and rapist who is honored by the city of São Paulo. Galo is a reference in the fight of app deliverers in Brazil, and his arrest, far beyond being the case of the genocidal bandeirante statue that was duly executed, is an attitude of intimidation to the people who seek to organize themselves to fight for a dignified life . It is an attempt to destabilize and demobilize the struggle of the app deliverers, which has stoppages scheduled for next month, as well as all the grassroots struggles in that country.

The arrest of Galo's wife, Gessica, is even more serious. Gessica was not even present at the demonstration on the day the statue of Borba Gato was set on fire, there is no evidence to suggest her participation in the incident. This is an illegal arrest.

There is a name for when the State, threatened by the struggles of the people, makes use of the persecution and criminalization of those who dare to rise up against the miserable conditions imposed on them, carrying out prisons, home invasions and all kinds of reckless actions: State. Galo, Géssica and Biu are victims, at that time, of a terrorist action by the government of the state of São Paulo.

All solidarity with the two militants who are incarcerated. The only way to counter this and other attacks that will come against our people is popular organization. Let us then forcefully press for the release of our imprisoned comrades and organize ourselves for what is to come.
