Using huge signs with phrases that are assertive and which spark controversy, such as “Zumbi somos nós” e “Brasil negro salve”, Frente 3 de Fevereiro’s interventions burst into the everyday life of the city and in the mediatic narratives to introduce dissent, incite debate, and resist state violence and racism. The video and the photographs record some of these interventions, in soccer stadiums and in the Ocupação Prestes Maia, in São Paulo, and a flag brings to Galpão VB the challenging question: “Onde estão os negros?” [Where are the blacks?].
