February 14, 2018: Marielle Franco was assassinated in Rio de Janeiro. She was Brazilian black LGBT+ woman, activist, politician, and feminist. Until now her death has not been investigated. She represents more than one single person, but she was the symbol of freedom to speak up, to occupy a political space for individuals who are still marginalized in Brazil, and all whose the current president Jair Bolsonaro is willing to shut down.

In commemoration to Marielle Franco, but also to demand justice for her death, and as part of a larger effort to sensitize the US population about the political, social, and human situation in Brazil, the collective Re-Existir organizes a march in Santa Cruz in front of O’Neill, including a special Afro-Brazilian Dance Performance. Come and join our forces for this crucial occasion!
