May 18, 2020. João Pedro Mattos Pinto was murdered by the police IN HIS HOME in São Gonçalo, Rio de Janeiro. he was only 14. when the police murdered him, he was PLAYING in his own backyard. his house now has at least 72 bullet holes in it’s walls. and his mom’s heart has one giant hole, that one type that is impossible to be ever filled again.
this happened exactly a week before George Floyd’s murder. João Pedro was black too.
it doesn’t matter where you from. all cops are bastards. all of them. brazillian ones. us cops. even the ones from your country. all of them serve the same racist purposes.
João Pedro should be remembered. his life and Floyd’s matter so much.
so much respect for the protesters in Minneapolis.
there’s a petition going on right now demanding justice for João Pedro. PLEASE, sign it and share/reblog if you can.
vidas negras importam.
