CEPIA expresses its rejection to the murder of João Alberto Silveira Freitas, beaten to death at the Carrefour supermarket in Porto Alegre.
CEPIA expresses repudiation to the structural racism established in a culture that is originated in violence, in the death of black and indigenous bodies.
The murder of João Alberto, which occurred on the eve of Black Awareness Day, adds to so many other crimes of racist violence such as that of Rafael, João Pedro, João Victor, Rodrigo, Iago, Vinícius and many others who were murdered for being black.
The murder of João Alberto is a daily murder of black people.
The impact of racism is reflected in everyone’s life.
CEPIA demonstrates its support for the anti-racist struggle and the fight against violence.
