    Poema dedicado a Brad Will – 1 ano de assassinato e impunidade
    Por alexzapa, cmi fortal

    Companheiro Brad,
    Te conheci pouco,
    Mas te conheci muito

    Te conheci pelos vídeos dos ?sem vozes?
    Pelas imagens documentadas
    Pelas notícias do mídia independente relatadas

    Indymedia!
    Eu grito!

    Das minhas lágrimas tímidas
    Saem gotas de sangue de indignação
    Que me manterão acordado
    Pelo homem imprescindível que você foi
    Esse homem ao qual Brecht já advertiu

    ?La lucha sigue? dizem os latinos
    Eu te digo:
    A Luta seguirei
    Por ti, companheiro, por ti

    Como aquela maldita bala me doeu
    Ela não só atingiu seu pulmão
    Atingiu meu mundo, uma legião
    E, infelizmente, ela não vai parar…
    Até que vençamos
    E venceremos!

    Brad Somos Todos!

    Não se preocupe Hermano,
    Você tomou o céu por assalto
    Literalmente!

    Do seu companheiro de Centro De Mídia Independente (Indymedia),
    Alexandre Mourão (alexzapa)

    Poema escrito no mesmo dia da morte de Brad Will, e readaptado após um 1 ano.

    Dedicado também às outras várias pessoas mortas em Oaxaca. E a todos(as) que caíram na luta.

    Fortaleza, Outubro de 2007
