Conservatives in Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo, and nation’s capital Brasilia organized rallies in support of conservative candidate Jair Bolsonaro this weekend, insisting that the fact a socialist assailant tried to assassinate Bolsonaro will only serve to strengthen his nationwide support. Bolsonaro – running a campaign promising an end to corruption, consolidation of oversized public social programs, and conservative family values – was campaigning in southeast Minas Gerais state on Thursday when a man identified as Adelio Bispo de Oliveira ran up to the candidate and stabbed him in the abdomen. While initial reports suggested the wound was “superficial,” a subsequent medical review found significant damage to Bolsonaro’s lungs, liver, and intestines. He is expected to undergo a second surgery on Monday and is considered in “stable, but serious” condition.Bolsonaro’s son Flavio, himself running for a senate seat in … [Read more...] about Conservatives Flood Streets in Brazil’s Largest Cities in Support of Stabbed Presidential Hopeful

GUILTY: Jeffrey Lartey Jeffrey Lartey, 17, was part of a 20-strong mob who set upon Ailton Campos De Oliveira as he cycled home from a party. Ailton, 16, was targeted as part of a bitter rivalry between three notorious street gangs responsible for a shocking catalogue of crimes across Newham.

Both had belonged to the rival Plaistow-based Chadd … [Read more...] about Stratford teen jailed for knifing Ailton Oliveira

Thirteen years after her husband was ordered deported back to his native Brazil, the official recognition of their marriage would bring him within a few signatures of being able to call himself an American. With legal papers, they could buy a house and get a bank loan. He could board a plane. They could take their son to Disney World. Then the officer reappeared. “I’ve got some good news and some bad news,” he said. “The good news is, I’m going to approve your application. Clearly, your marriage is real. The bad news is, ICE is here, and they want to speak with you.” ICE was Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the federal agency charged with arresting and … [Read more...] about A marriage used to prevent deportation.
