Pray for Espírito Santo, pray for Brazil.


Espírito Santo, a state in Brazil, is in complete chaos, a sort of chaos that is being compared to the film The Purge, where for 12 hours there were no laws and no rules. Except here, it’s been two days already.

The National Media is suppressing it all, the only way people IN Brazil are aware of what has been happening is through Twitter, because the media is ignoring it all.

The Military police went on strike for better payment, thugs are literally ruling the streets and running riots. There is murder, rape and looting. Just this morning, more than 16 people have been murdered.

In two days, more than 50 people have died, stores are being robbed in daylight, buses are being set on fire and dead bodies are left lying in the streets, according to the Daily Mail, which is one of the only medias spreading what’s going on. Only international media is talking about it and giving it attention. Brazil’s media is literally suppressing it completely, we woke up with news about the sunset in Rio and what’s been going on in Big Brother Brazil, there are countless news about Carnaval, but nothing about Espírito Santo.

And this is just a little bit of what’s happening. People are running down the streets with guns in their hands, people can’t get out of their houses, people are dying, ES is being ran by thugs and no one is talking about it. No one mentions it. PLEASE, spread this somehow, tell people what’s been going on, demand attention. 

If this was happening in France or in the UK, people would be all over it, celebs would have “pray for brazil/es” all over their social media profiles, but when it happens in Latin America people ignore it.

There is a tag on twitter called “#ESpedesocorro”, ES asks for help, where Brazilian people have been sharing videos and images of what’s been going on, because our media is not, and begging for prayers and help. You can watch some videos here: [x], [x], [x], [x], [x].

There’s nothing on TV about this, just NOW, after three days our president Michel Temer is sending the federal troops. But they are doing everything very silently, and the government has not decreed state of siege and emergency, even though it should have. They sent nothing more than 200 federals and 1 helicopter to see what’s going on. Which is a joke.

“The governor of Vitoria in eastern Brazil called Monday for federal troops to come to the rescue after police went on strike, leaving the city at the mercy of criminals.The acting governor of Espirito Santo state, Cesar Colnago, asked President Michel Temer ‘to send the National Force and the army to safeguard the security of citizens,’ a statement on the governor’s website said.Police, aided by relatives and sympathizers blockading police stations, have been protesting against unpaid salaries since early Saturday. With no patrols on the streets over the weekend, assaults and other crime have multiplied, Brazilian media reported.“ According to the Daily Mail. 

All we ask, is for you to try to spread this, show people how our media is hiding serious events, how there’s murders and rape, how we need help and no one even mentions it. 

Please, pray for us, talk about us, demand the media’s attention. People in Espírito Santo need help. 

Under the cut there’s graphic content, images of what’s been going on. You can decide if you want to look or not, just know we never had a chance to choose.
