Shock and Concern: Two Words to Describe Brazilians Reaction in London

Carlos Eduardo Goia, international relations coordinator of the Non-Governmental Organization, Global Justice, said in London that the reaction of Brazilians who live in London was one of shock and concern.

According to Goia, the reaction couldn’t have been worse. “Most of the Brazilians with whom I conversed were shocked and concerned. Most of the people with whom I talked, in the first place, were shocked by the fact that it was a Brazilian.


“In second place, the concern about the police having shot Jean to death, with some doubt whether he really ran away from the police.” Among people who were close to Jean, they’re upset about the assassination of an innocent person.


The representative of the Global Justice organization said that on Sunday, around 40 Brazilians protested in front of the British Parliament against Jean’s death.


Carlos Eduardo says that the British press has reflected the general opinion that the police acted badly. But, he affirms at the same time that the police has done a good job, excepting this case, and it’s doing everything possible when it comes to the terrorist attacks of recent weeks.


According to Carlos Eduardo, after the second terrorist attack on July 21, the British population is upset. He says that fewer people are using the public transportation system and that people are worried about another attack.


Jean Charles de Menezes was killed by the British police on Friday, July 22, when they mixed him up with the terrorists suspected of participating in last Thursday’s, July 21, attacks on the subway.
