Activists kidnapped and tortured by Brazilian authorities
Beginning on Wednesday, August 22nd, during demonstrations in downtown Recife, there have been reports of plain clothed police officers kidnapping and torturing protestors.
Victims were at home, or on their way home, when they were approached violently and cuffed. They were forced into vehicles, where they were beaten, threatened with guns and tasers, and tortured on the way to the police station.
Some people are still MISSING!
One victim was found hours after his disappearance, thrown unconscious on a street with marks of aggression throughout his body.
Another was taken to a police station, thrown to the floor, and kicked repeatedly in the head until another officer intervened.
It is believed that orders for these abductions came DIRECTLY FROM THE OFFICE OF THE GOVERNOR Eduardo Campos (PSB).
