RAPpening in NYC: Stand up for Justice. Resist! Music + Protest
A beautiful encounter of Defend Democracy in Brazil/NY with Rapper Flávio Renegado ( BH-Brazil) and activist/ scholar Alessandra Pio ( Rio de Janeiro-Brazil) and other invited activists
A CALL FOR JUSTICE IN BRAZIL
We protested and denounced the lack of serious investigations into the murder of Councilwoman Marielle Franco and all political assassinations of activists in Brazil.
We demanded the end of president Lula’s illegal imprisonment and the biased acts of the Judiciary System in Brazil to keep him out of the ballot for the 2018 Presidential elections in Brazil
As the mural for #MarielleFranco with Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. had been removed, we collaborated with Australian artist Mike Makatron, to add a homage to Marielle to R.I.P. and to #FreeLula, in his own artistic intervention on the streets of Bushwick, Brooklyn
You can visit this project at the corner of Stagg and Waterbury Streets in Brooklyn, NY #MariellePresente #LulaLivre
