"If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side
of the oppressor" Desmond Tutu.
We are researchers, workers, volunteers, students and friends of
Brazilians that live in Boston and we get together to support people in
For our friends that don't speak Portuguese and don't know what's happening:
During this month of June, Brazil staged several protests against the
increase of bus tickets fares. Although the social organizations started
using this claim, now the prostests englobe something bigger: they are
against oppressive governments which do not protect the civil right of
freedom of speech and protest.
What was supposed to be a non-violent act yesterday, became a real war
scene, with policemen chasing everyone in the streets without further
notice. Several people were injured. Dozens were arrested. One
photographer can be blind in one eye.
For more information, see CNN article about the protest:
So what we are planning to do:
1) Sunday at 2 pm we are going to meet in front of Cambridge Common Park
to make posters and signs in support of the fight that is going on in Brazil
2) At 2:30 pm we are going to take pictures to show our support to what
is going on in Brazil. We are planning to send it to friends, the media
and people in Brazil.
TO SUM UP: we are meeting SUNDAY, 23rd of june at 2:00PM in Cambridge
Common Park, by the Irish Monument
Please although help us have freedom and democracy in our country! That
is all we are fighting for...
"Se você é neutro a situações de opressão você escolheu ficar do lado do
opressor" Desmon Tutu

organziar no Cambridge Common Park.
