Brick by brick, counting murders

, November 28, 2012

A man walks past stacks of bricks, 960 in total, which symbolise the number of murders per week in Brazil according to Rio de Paz (Peace Rio), at the Esplanade of Ministries in Brasilia with the National Congress building in the background, on November 28. Rio de Paz is a non-governmental organisation that is affiliated with Department of Public Information of the UN and its members placed these stacks of bricks to draw attention to Brazil's homicide rate, according to organizers.
