Brazil Rio de Janeiro delivered to the army in the first federal intervention in its history
On 13 February 2015, the young Vitor Santiago Borges was shot in the spine , carried out by soldiers of the Brazilian army during the military occupation of complex favelas of Maré, one of the largest and most dangerous in Rio de Janeiro . As a result, Vitor had to amputate a leg and was quadriplegic . His mother, Irone Santiago, was turned into an activist force. "My son is still in a wheelchairwaiting for justice. He was a healthy boy of 29 when he was mauled. Now serve three years of this tragedy. I do not get to stay quiet in front of this situation. My son is not the only victim. There are many and there may be many more, "says Irone to El Confidencial.

Therefore, this courageous mother, who since 2015 has not stopped denouncing the conduct of the Brazilian Armed Forces, fears that federal intervention in the state of Rio de Janeiro enacted this week by President Michel Temer end up causing new cases like his son . "Violations of human rights will occur only within the favelas. Tanks not circulate in the luxurious streets of the south [the neighborhood is Ipanema], because this operation is an excuse to kill the poor, blacks and 'favelas' [slum dwellers] , "he says.

"No more than passively accept the death of innocents. It is intolerable that we are burying fathers and mothers, honest workers, police , youth and children , "Temer said as justification for its decision, taken before the situation of uncontrolled violence that exists in the city that hosted the Olympic Games 2016. with this decree, the federal sphere overlaps the state in all that relates to public safety until 31 December, the day that concludes the term of Temer. It's kind of article 155 which empties the state government of Luiz Fernando Pezão. Most striking is the appointment of an army general, Walter Braga NettoAs auditor. They depend on it from now the military police, civilian police, the fire brigade and prison institutions of Rio de Janeiro. Braga Netto responds solely to fear for their decisions.
