mass shooting, black genocide 

Yesterday in , the fascist cops that Marielle Franco organised against killed two dozen people in *one* shootout in a favela of Rio.

To clarify, police in brazil are even more militarized than in the u.s., killing even more people, & racialized poverty/condemnation to urban ghettos is equally intense. All that's “unusual” here is that this many people died in one day instead of one or two weeks.

76 years ago, the Italian Resistance fighters coordinated multiple attacks to the remaining Nazi-fascist strongholds in Northern Italy, thus declaring that they were not welcome in our country and that they had no legitimate power over the Italian people.

And that’s a message we still have to repeat year after year, day after day, because fascists never left the country – they just made their influence less overt.
