An anti-brutality march was staged in the predominantly ethnic minority neighborhood of Madureira, Rio de Janeiro, on Thursday after the recent killing of five unarmed black youths by police officers. Protesters marched through the streets holding banners and calling for an end to the recent spate of police violence. Five youths aged between 16 and 20 years old, allegedly unarmed, were shot by Military Police in the Complexo da Pedreira favela in the Costa Barros area of Rio on November 29. Authorities have said that procedural evidence of fraud was discovered in the case record made by the officers.
