ALEXANDRE ANDERSON:

 
Initially when Almir and Pituca went missing we weren’t immediately alarmed even though they had already killed Paulo and Marcos.
 
They didn’t just kill Pituca and Almir - it was barbaric and cruel.
 
They tied up our friends and left them to drown. They were drowned by the water that flows from the Guandaxiba River – the very river we are trying to save, the environment we are trying to preserve.
 
They were in the way of the fucking pier.
 
They are – chasing us – hunting us - killing us…
 
They kill us and we bury our friends. When we bury them a little bit of ourselves goes with them.
 
But we will not be driven out of our homes on Guanabara Bay.
 
The choice is simple - either we impose our will and survive – or we leave things as they are and use our boats as firewood to cook our last meal on the beach.
