On the eve of the day that will complete five years since the deaths of Rio de Janeiro city councilor Marielle Franco and driver Anderson Gomes, an event with cultural activities and a roundtable of debates with parliamentarians will reflect on the murders, which have not yet been clarified. The event “Marielle Vive! Favelas in the Reconstruction of the Country” takes place next Monday (13th), starting at 9am, at Fiocruz’s Manguinhos Library, in the north zone of Rio.
Organized by the NGO Dicionário de Favelas Marielle Franco, the free event will have a photographic exhibition and cultural performances, in addition to showing videos of family members and other people close to Marielle and Anderson. State deputies Renata Souza, Mônica Francisco and Dani Monteiro, as well as councilwoman Mônica Cunha, all from PSOL in Rio, will participate in the main table, “From Favela to Parliament”, which will address Marielle’s legacy.
“The proposal is to hold a debate based on the experiences of women who worked with her and who undertake the collective struggle to keep Marielle’s ideas and ideals alive, as well as to build new ways to broaden the debate on favelas and citizenship, human rights and security, gender and race in Brazilian political life”, highlights the Dicionário de Favelas in a note.
the photographic exhibition Other Tidescurated by Dante Gastaldoni and with the participation of members of Coletivo Fotografia, Periferia e Memória, will present a vision of the favelas offered by people who live in the communities.
The closing of the event will have the cultural performance I am because we are, with poetry, song and dance. Marielle’s companions, Rachel Barros, Carolina Rocha and Deley de Aracari will receive guests for the activity.
The Dictionary of Favelas
Launched in 2019, the Dicionário de Favelas Marielle Franco works to give visibility to actions to preserve memories in favelas and peripheries in Brazil. The project is based at the Institute of Scientific and Technological Communication and Information in Health (ICICT-Fiocruz) and disseminates knowledge about these territories in an interdisciplinary, interinstitutional and plural way.
