Brazil has been rocked this past week over the political assassination of Marielle Franco, a prominent Black, feminist and socialist activist in Rio de Janeiro. Franco was also an elected councilor in the Municipal Chamber of Rio de Janeiro and having grown up in a favela neighborhood, the dense informal settlements of the poor and often marginalized that surround major cities in Brazil, she was seen as a prominent organizer and voice against the poverty and police violence directed against the largely Black residents.
We (The Black Rose/Rosa Negra Social Media Team – BRRN)conducted this interview with our Brazilian comrades with the Rio de Janerio based political organization Federação Anarquista do Rio de Janeiro (Anarchist Federation of Rio de Janeiro or FARJ), which is a member of a alliance of similar organizations across Brazil, the Coordenação Anarquista Brasileira (Brazilian Anarchist Coordination or CAB). We discuss Marielle Franco’s legacy, Black struggles in Brazil, and the political context of her assassination.
