According to Douglas Belchior, member of the União de Núcleos de Educação Popular para Negras/os e Classe Trabalhadora Uneafro or Union of Centers of Popular Education for Blacks/ and the Working Class, one of the organizations that make up the march, blacks are still the main victims of violence in Brazil. “Our intention is to celebrate the 20th of November as a day of the memory of Zumbi dos Palmares 3, hero of the Brazilian people, and also seek new ways to tackle racism that unfortunately still claims the lives of many black men and women. Each year there has been an increase in the number of homicides against blacks. We perceive institutional violence, which is the state, killing and allowing to kill, so we call it genocide,” he said in an interview with Rádio Brasil Atual.
