Lalo de Almeida/Folhapress/Panos

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

An informal military police base in the favela of Cidade de Deus. With the complete absence of the state, the population of these needy communities is abandoned to their fate and submissive to drug cartels that take advantage of the vacuum of public power to dominate the territory. The only presence of the state that arrives in these communities are sporadic visits by the police, which ends up generating more violence, causing the death of innocent people, including children.
