New Yorkers Express Solidarity With Goiania Landless Workers

New Yorkers Friday expressed rage to the Brazilian Consulate about a recent slaughter of landless squatters in Goiania, Brazil. Extremely cold winds did not deter solidarity with Brazilian land struggles and with NYC Indymedia journalist Brad Will, who was beaten in custody after the murderous Feb. 16 raid on Sonho Real encampment by Goias state military police. Police killed at least two and arrested 800, leaving 12,000 homeless and many wounded or missing. Fifty unidentified bodies now lay in the morgue.
