Bourne Free 2019

Justice for Marielle

This #PrideMonth we want justice for Marielle Franco – an amazing LGBTI campaigner who was tragically murdered for her activism last year. Demand a full investigation from Brazil's President Jair Messias Bolsonaro here: http://amn.st/6188Et7Cy

We had another successful Bourne Free in Bournemouth Gardens and on the Parade. We had 96 cards signed to continue our campaign for justice for Marielle Franco. Many people posed with our “Love is a Human Right” selfie frame – most taken on their own phone – with a few others below.

Marielle Franco was murdered in a drive-by shooting in March 2018. Her killers and those behind the plot to assassinate her have still not been brought to justice, over a year later. Marielle dedicated her life to speaking out for LGBTI, black and women’s rights in Brazil. She paid the ultimate price for defending human rights. Demand a full, independent investigation into her murder by signing our petition to the Brazilian president, Jair Bolsonaro:-
