From Al Jazeera’s YouTube channel:
Tens of thousands of Brazilians have protested across the country to mourn the apparent assassination of a well-known police critic.
Marielle Franco, a councilwoman from Rio de Janeiro, was shot along with her driver on Wednesday night.

Since our platform is about expressing ideas and ideals instead of cash flow, clicks, or fundraising, we have the freedom to include a wide range of topics and formats that might not work elsewhere. We don’t need or want paid content, promotional materials, or story lines designed to please donors.
So the idea here is to present videos one or more of the editors feel speaks to them. Sometimes it will be news. Sometimes it will be history. And a lot of the time it will be culture. You can not and should not separate these things: it is diversity and intersectionality that makes our movement strong.
