Categories: Latin America, Brazil, Digital Activism, Freedom of Speech, Governance, Law

There are more than 100 comments showing solidarity with lieutenant blogger Melquisedec Nascimento [1] [pt]. According to him, Rio de Janeiro's Governor Sergio Cabral ordered yesterday that he was arrested immediately. The Police force in charge of the task paid visit to his home this Saturday, but he was nowhere to be found. “What greatly irritated Cabral was a photo composition and a video posted [2] on the blog, in which the governor is depicted as Pinocchio”.
