month after their colleague Rodrigo Neto was gunned down on the street
after eating at a popular outdoor barbecue restaurant, the journalists of Vale do Aço, Brazil, were indignant. Denouncing
a sluggish investigation and the possibility of police involvement in the
murder, they strapped black bands to their wrists in a sign of solidarity, put
on T-shirts bearing Neto's name, and took to the streets to demand justice. Six
days later, Walgney Assis Carvalho, a photographer who claimed to have
knowledge of the crime, was shot twice in the back by a masked assassin as he
sat at a fish restaurant. The journalists of Vale do Aço are still indignant, but now they are terrified.
