Black, left-wing lesbian councilwoman murdered in Rio

Thousands took to the streets of Brazil’s cities to protest the execution-style murder of Marielle Franco, 38, a popular Rio councilwoman, and outspoken critic of cop killings in favelas. Last year, 1,124 people were killed by the police, the highest in a decade. Nearly 80 percent of these were black or mixed-race. The black, left-wing lesbian activist for human rights and women’s causes, was killed along with her driver. Investigators termed it a political assassination. Her press secretary, travelling in the same vehicle, was not shot. Crowds have protested her killing and celebrated her life on the streets of Lisbon, London, Madrid, Munich, New York, Paris and Stockholm.
