Lisbon, Portugal – Anti-racism protests have continued in Portugal a day after hundreds of demonstrators gathered in the capital, Lisbon, to demand justice for a Black Portuguese man who was murdered a week ago.
Bruno Cande Marques, a 39-year-old actor and father of three children, was shot four times at point-blank range on a busy street in the Moscavide area of Lisbon on July 25 and died instantly.
A suspect, a white man in his 70s, was arrested at the scene.
Carrying placards reading, “No justice, no peace” and “Racism is colonial heritage”, demonstrators including members of Bruno Cande’s family on Friday staged a rally outside Lisbon’s National Theatre, where a large banner of the murdered man was hanging from.
Similar protests were held on Saturday in
