I simply wrote "vote null" with the anarchism symbol, white paint over black background, right over his face.

This candidate was stabbed in the gut today. He didn't die, unfortunately.

I know what you mean, but it's the only way to keep contact with the other activists from my country. They won't all change away from it. I always try to get people to use libre alternatives, but they're reluctant.

Anyway, your tips will help me get it right this time. I have been using Tor and uBlock (not together). I might try again using a new phone number and email, adding people slowly, trying to be more like a new user.

You open the Facebook page of any prominent female activist and they're filled with comments left by men saying culture of rape doesn't exist and women are exaggerating. It's disgusting what you hear them say. And we still don't know who killed Marielle. She was shot with a machine gun in the middle of the street in the evening. The militias are so powerful and influent, they have politicians and cops under their control. That's how they get guns and new targets.

I buy spray paint, make banners and buy many blankets for donating directly to the homeless during winter. We have a group called Black Angel in Sao Paulo. Not just giving things to help them survive, but also talking a lot. You have no idea how much you can learn from them. There was a trans person once that gave us a lesson of politics, very smart. They even appeared on TV afterwards. That's how I invest resources.

Few days ago, the protests were seen as a very noble act and everyone was supporting the truckers. All of a sudden, the government became hostile to the movement. Simultaneously, the biggest media corporation in Brazil started to show the protest in a bad way, trying to spread the idea that this strike is ruining everything.

That's all they talk about now. The media now shows them as rioters.

But it's sad to see many truckers are actually protesting to ask for military intervention. Brazil wants another military dictatorship.
