Municipality Day: “Brava” brand presented to the public through Renda Brava products Nova Sintra, Jun 24 (Inforpress) – The first collection by Renda Brava products project, which represents the Brava brand, was presented to the citizens of Brava, in an exhibition organized by CNAD and the City Hall, in Nova Sintra. At the inauguration, the director of the National Center for Art, Crafts and Design (CNAD), Irlando Ferreira, showed that the exhibition and the brand represent the achievement of a “very great” challenge, because working from São Vicente to Brava, through digital means, “is completely different” than when working in person. As he pointed out, since 2018, when the project began, they were already aware that it would be a challenge, but the motivation of the creatives, both designers and the hand-embroidered made by women, made the CNAD and everyone involved bet everything was possible so that the project could get to what it is today. According to this official, the hand-embroidered made by women in Brava no longer exists for several years, and the CNAD wanted with the project to bring hand-embroidered made by women that had identity and symbology with this island, explaining the care the team had in carrying out the work.

Portugal: Anti-Racist Front honors Alcindo Monteiro and all victims of racism in Lisbon

Lisbon, Jun 10 (Inforpress) – The Anti-Racist Front today promotes a tribute to the Cabo Verdean who was beaten to death in 1995 in Lisbon, Alcindo Monteiro, on the day he turns 27 of his death, at a memorial meeting in the Portuguese capital to also remember other victims.

According to the promoter of the event, the tribute, which is scheduled for 11:00AM on Garrett Street in Lisbon, the capital’s street where “white supremacists” assaulted the Cabo Verdean on June 10, 1995, “also call us to remember other lives violently interrupted by racist killers.”

The memorial meeting, an initiative of the Anti-Racist Front (FAR), to which other anti-racism movements in Lisbon join, will also recall victims, such as Giovani Rodrigues, Bruno Candé and Wilson Neto, on Portugal Day, Camões and Portuguese Communities.

“Racism – as a power relationship – is reproduced every day as a form and process of domination, oppression and systematic violence in all environments: at work, in the  coffee shop, in a restaurant or store and in the institutions,” considers the organization of the event.
