"Manifest" as written by Massimiliano A. Cavalera, Andreas Rudolf Kisser, Igor Cavalera and Paulo Xisto Jr. Pinto....
Friday, October 2nd, 1992
Chaos has descended in "Carandiru", the biggest penitentiary complex in South
America
Over a hundred inmates dead and hundreds injured on the massacre
The police arrived with helicopters and over two hundred armed forces

They took the jail block called "Pavilhao Nove" and opened fire on the inmates
In a holocaust, method of annihilation. The government of the city of Sao
Paulo cannot control the brutality of its police

Holocaust, Body piles
Confrontation, Mutilation
Discipline, Ignorance
Conflagration, Torture

Over eighty percent of the inmates were not sentenced yet. The bodies were
Filled with bullets and bites from the police dogs
The police try to hide the massacre saying there were only eight deaths
The violence of Brazilian cops is very well known outside of Brazil. This
Kind of extermination is a method that they use to get rid of the
Overpopulation in the jails
The violence of the cops left the whole pavilion destroyed after the
Rebellion
"Pavilhao Nove" (Pavilhao 9)

    General CommentThe Carandiru massacre took place on Friday, October 2, 1992 in Carandiru Penitentiary in São Paulo, Brazil, and is considered a major human rights violation in the history of Brazil.

    The massacre was triggered by a revolution of sorts in the prison, incited by prisoners. As the prison riot became harder to control, the Military Police stormed Carandiru. The result was that 111 prisoners were killed, 102 from gunshots fired by Military Police and nine from stab wounds, apparently inflicted by other prisoners before the arrival of the police. None of the sixty eight police were killed. Survivors claimed that the police also fired at inmates who already surrendered or tried to hide in their cells
