Protest Against Police Suppression Of Protests

A silent march against Censorship and UPP killings.

On June 29, in Rio de Janeiro a silent march took place to call attention to the suppression of protests, and deaths in Favelas by the UPP (Pacifying Police Unit).

As with any other march this one also made clear the angst in Brasil was against FIFA and the World Cup, not Soccer.

To portray the censorship they have experienced protesters wore gags around their mouths. To exhibit the loss of life from efforts to pacify Favelas, protesters carried signs with the names of activists and “-1”

Some protesters also carried signs with another idea for how to pacify favelas…

“Mais educação. Menos caveirão.”
“More education. Less military police.”
