Protesting the Assassination of Socialist Feminist Marielle Franco
As part of the Coalition for Peace, Revolution, and Social Justice, members of the Socialist Party Los Angeles Local helped to organize and participated in a rally to protest the assassination of Brazilian socialist activist Marielle Franco. The event was held by the Brazilian Consulate in Los Angeles.
From the Coalition for Peace, Revolution, and Social Justice: " Our slogans emphasized Marielle's legacy as as a fighter for Black people, women, LGBTQIA folks, and poor and working-class communities in Brazil, accountability for her killers, and an end to police murder and fascism in Brazil and the US, among other issues. We handed out scores of fliers to pedestrians and drivers, and received a largely positive response from the public, especially from bus drivers and other working-class people.
