The Guardian Publishes Activist Letter Calling for Justice for Marielle

As a follow-up to Thursday’s discussions of Marielle Franco’s assassination, I wanted to share this letter signed by international activists, artists, and writers calling for her death to be fully investigated and the perpetrators brought to justice.

Signers of the letter include Ava DuVernay (director of Selma & A Wrinkle in Time), Angela Davis, Janelle Monáe, Patrisse Cullors and Opal Tometi (founders of Black Lives Matter), and Bertha Zúñiga Cáceres (Beta Cáceres’ daughter).
