It was the lives of 25 young people. Suspicious or not, people do not have to be murdered. These are crimes, it is state violence.""People died sitting down, they died inside houses. The images show the truth and from the direction of the blood you can see there was no exchange of shots. It was an execution, it was murder."GIOVANA ALMEIDA:“This was not an intelligence operation, it was a total massacre that forms part of the genocide underway in our country, and especially in our state.”
