The Black Coalition for Rights filed a lawsuit before the Federal Supreme Court of Brazil (STF for its acronym in Portuguese) for the State to recognize the genocide against the black population, and “a policy of death against the black population structured on racism ”, 134 years after the incomplete abolition of slavery.

“We want the STF to recognize that there is a policy of death against the black population structured in racism in Brazil. We need a public commitment to reverse this scenario, therefore, the action is focused on the demand for policies that can hold responsible and repair the black communities affected by this policy of death”, stressed the member of the Black Coalition for Rights, Sheila deCarvalho.
The Coalition presented the Allegation of Failure to Comply with a Fundamental Precept (ADPF), which requests, among other actions, the development of a so-called National Plan to Confront Institutional Racism and the policy of death of the black population.
This foundation is based on the fact that “the serious injuries to the fundamental precepts of the Constitution practiced by the Brazilian State are recognized and repaired by repeated actions and omissions that culminate in the systematic violation of the constitutional rights to life, health, security and decent food for the black population”.
The group, which brings together more than 250 organizations in a national articulation, denounced that the protest of the black movement is secular but has no support from the institutions.

The activist platform for the rights of black people has seen various records, including the 1.6 percent increase in homicides among black people from 2009 to 2019. Similarly, the entity revealed that 75.5 percent of people murdered in the country they are black.
Likewise, the group found that black women are more likely to suffer obstetric violence and receive less anesthesia during the cut in the perineum, which represents 10.7 percent. On the other hand, 61 percent of female victims of femicide are black women.

Meanwhile, the Coalition declared that black people are 2.5 times more victims than white people.
Other data presented by the organization indicated that in 2018, 58.1 percent of households with severe food insecurity were headed by self-declared black or brown people.
A year ago, military police and civilians from Rio murdered 28 people in the Jacarezinho favela.
To remember the massacre, the community installed a memorial in homage to the victims and this Wednesday, 5 days after its installation, the civil police demolished it.

For the Black Coalition for Rights, the inconclusive abolition in Brazil generates many impacts on the lives of the black population, including the growing increase in the lethality of black people as a result of institutional violence, especially as a result of police actions. .
That police violence argued by the Black Coalition was reflected a year ago when military and civilian police from the state of Rio de Janeiro murdered 28 people in the Jacarezinho favela. In the Rio region, the Black Coalition for Rights states that 91 percent of children killed by stray bullets are black.
On the other hand, the group argued that another daily consequence is “the dismantling of public policies aimed at health care for the black population; and income redistribution policies that make it difficult and impossible to access decent living conditions, including access to healthy food.”
