At an anti-FIFA protest on Mother’s Day, May 11, a mother fights police trying to arrest her son. She cries: “We cannot accept that the working poor youth continue to be terrorized and murdered throughout the whole country by the military police.

We demand that all the arrested protesters be released, all charges against protesters be removed and all convictions be reversed so that no political activist is criminalized!”
