The courage of family and friends of Amarildo, murdered by the military police inside the headquarters of the Pacifying Police Unit of Rocinha in July 2013, has become a symbol of resistance and struggle of civil society against State violence. The case was the trigger not only for mobilizing other communities, but primarily to expose the weaknesses of a project of militarized public security.
