Rocinha for UOL special article / by LUCAS LANDAU

Is out now on UOL a special issue about peace in Rocinha, one of the biggest favelas in Brazil, with 100 thousand residents. The reporter Marcela Lemos talked with residents about how the violence is changing their lives. Because of the "war on drugs", maintained by the State and Federal Government, students cannot go to school, residents cannot go to work and a lot of social projects in the community are empty.

In 2018 the situation in Rocinha is worst than the last years. Brazil needs to talk about this war on drugs that is killing many people and it is not changing anything.
