[edit] Information

Rio de Janeiro favela residents rally against police brutality, corruption, impunity and ruthless state oppression. In November 2011 military police took control of Rio de Janeiro's largest favela, Rocinha, forcing out armed gangs of drug traffickers without a single shot fired, in a government initiative to "pacify" the slums. However, shortly afterwards reports began to emerge of widespread police abuse, which culminated in the disappearance of local bricklayer Amarildo de Souza. He was last seen being taken into the police station for questioning but never came home. His family believed that he was tortured and murdered by the police, with impunity, like many other innocent civilians in the city. In the face of brutal oppression, local residents started a protest movement, "Where is Amarildo?", that shook the Brazilian establishment to the core.
