Marielle Franco, Rio Councillor, assassinated

« Go back

16 March 2018

On the 14th March 2018 Marielle Franco and her driver, Anderson Pedro Gomes, were gunned down in Rio De Janeiro.

This is a despicable act. It is an assassination, a deliberate pre-meditated murder committed for the sole reason that she stood for the rights of the poor, the marginalised and the oppressed.

Marielle dared to denounced the injustices perpetrated by those in power, the police and the military, those with prejudices against minority groups.

Micah Global stands with our Micah Brazil members and in solidarity we commit to continue to speak out for justice.

Our hearts mourn with the family and friends of Marielle and Anderson.  May the God of all comfort, who in Jesus intimately knows your pain through his own assassination on the cross, strengthen you through this time. We commit to continue to speak out for justice.

We stand with you, Brazi, and we pray for justice and shalom in your land.
