    Meanwhile, thousands marched in Rio streets demanding justice for Marielle Franco, one month after her assassination.

    Marielle, who was born and raised in Maré, one of the poorest favelas in Rio, was well known for her denunciations of Police brutality and a vocal critic of the federal intervention in relation to security decreed by the government, which gave the control of the area in the hands of the military one month before her slaying.

    April 13, Amnesty International renewed its calls to Brazilian authorities to give priority to the resolution of Marielle's case.
