Last night, Rooting for the Home Team was played at an assembly of Comunidades do Trilho (22 communities being threatened with removal), in the very same room that the video was shot nine months ago. (photos below) From one community member, “I have no words to thank all the American companions, for this great act of solidarity. We will use this video in everyday resistance and spread it everywhere we can. It will be a real “tool to fight” for the Movement to Fight in Defense of Housing and for all activists in Brazil.” Let’s follow the lead of Trilha do Senhor and Comunidades do Trilho in using this video to fight the planned destruction of these communities!
Be sure to sign the petition on the right side of the page, and keep sharing the video.
The community will be producing a followup video to share with you all, but for now, check out some photos from the event.
Thank you for all of the views, shares and signatures so far. Let’s keep this moving!
