TAKE ACTION: https://www.amnesty.org/en/get-involved/take-action/rio-2016-olympic-games/ The Olympic organisers are getting ready for this year’s Games in Rio. But the Games’ security plans risk plunging thousands of Rio’s most vulnerable into a summer of violence and fear. It’s been 7 years since Rio was awarded the Games, promising a safe city for all. And yet, in those same 7 years, police have killed over 2,651 people in the city. The majority: young black men. Amidst the Olympic glitter and fanfare, will anyone remember them?
