Bailey Jay, College, and Drive By: 2 hours ago 545 Likes Brazilian rights activist Marielle Franco assassinated in drive- by shooting Rio city councillor Marielle Franco was killed in a targeted shooting on Wednesday night. She was an outspoken critic of police violence and deploying the army into poor neighbourhoods of Rio MarielleFranco Rest in power! 💔🙏🏾 . Via The Root: "Marielle Franco, 38, a black politician from Rio de Janeiro, died fighting for the rights of women and favela dwellers. As a councilwoman from the Maré favela, she denounced the police brutality that favela residents, most of them black, regularly experienced. . On Wednesday around 9:20 p.m., armed men gunned the councilwoman down in her car in the center of Rio de Janeiro with nine shots—four to the head. Her driver, Anderson Pedro Gomes, also died.

Most of these protests were against the genocide of black people in Brazil. For Afro-Brazilians, Franco proved that a black person from a favela could be educated, have dignity and also fight against the social injustice that they suffer from every day. For women, she proved that they could overcome sexism and machismo in Brazil.

The genocide of the black population continues in this country. ” . Thousands of people gathered in front of Rio de Janeiro’s council chambers to pay homage to Franco, who was buried Thursday night. To show their digital support for her, Brazilians are changing their Facebook profile photos to those of Franco and using the hashtag MariellePresente, which translates to “Marielle is here.” . Amnesty International, the longtime leader of a campaign against the genocide of black people in Brazil, demanded that her death be rigorously investigated. With those nine shots, Franco became one more statistic in this genocide. Just over 50 percent of Brazil’s population of 200 million is black ... [Continued in comments]

England, Facebook, and Memes: FREE THOUG TERRORIST ATTACK IN LONDON aa TERRORIST ATTACK IN PARIS TERRORIST ATTACK IN RUSSIA 💭 Failure of US Solidarity With Russia Over Attack Shows the Real Enemy Is NOT Terrorism... It's Forgetting Our Humanity... REPORT: (link to article in our bio) An alleged terrorist detonated an improvised explosive device on a StPetersburg subway train Monday, killing eleven people and wounding at least 50 more — after which Russian authorities discovered and defused an additional deadly apparatus at a second metro location, likely preventing further carnage. . And while American corporate press published obligatory, cursory rundowns of the incident, notably absent in coverage — as well as on social media — were the typical trite, if maudlin, demands to fight the War on Terror a little bit harder. . Because solidarity. One would think. . When, just last month, a maniac attacker plowed his vehicle into a London crowd, killing three, then rammed the gates of British Parliament and stabbed to death a police officer, a tidal wave of condolences and calls for revived unity against ever-nebulous terrorism flooded England from every corner of the globe. . Union Jacks fast adorned a sea of Facebook profile images — as had the flags of Germany and France when each endeavored to recover following similarly devastating tragedies. . Monuments quickly glowed with the brilliant colors of each flag — from the Eiffel Tower to the Brandenburg Gate — if not in person, the entire planet witnessed heightened nationalism incidentally opportuned from disaster, plastered across front page headlines for days or more... . - Continued - . 💭 Read the FULL Report: (link in bio) http:-thefreethoughtproject.com-russia-attacks-failure-us-solidarity- 💭 Join Us: @TheFreeThoughtProject 💭 TheFreeThoughtProject Russia Terror 💭 LIKE our Facebook page & Visit our website for more News and Information.
