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.
