Amnesty International’s Write for Rights 2014: Jorge Lázaro Nunes Dos Santos ~ “Father Seeking Justice For His Sons”

Jorge Lázaro Nunes Dos Santos has been enduring the injustice and tragedy of having his sons, Ricardo and Enio dos Santos, murdered in Brazil with no convictions. Ricardo was playing soccer with his friends when he was shot to death. His brother Enio, was kidnapped from his own home, then killed. In Brazil, it is not uncommon for black children to be killed by death squads. And on December 17th, 2014 I asked the President of the National Council of Justice to pursue a trial that has three government officers linked to Ricardo’s death. While also, asking that Jorge Lázaro Nunes Dos Santos be allowed into a national program dedicated to seeking justice for families who have had their sons and daughters killed just because they were a different race.

    I think that Brazil president Dilma Rousseff doesn’t care. Because 6 days before, when Indigenous Brazilians protested to the government, the Brazilian police attacked to them with pepper spray and tear gas. The tragic part of this event, when the CIA tortured report come to the light, Dilma Rousseff had spoken in front of the cameras with tears and she said that “I’ve lived to torture”. All politicians are hypocrite on this planet.
