FRAMINGHAM – State Rep. Priscila Sousa is organizing a rally to support the Brazilian community Monday, April 10.
“Over the past week, the Brazilian community has been left in fear and uncertainty due to a senseless act of aggression,” wrote Rep. Sousa.
“While we must to continue working on long term safety solutions for our immigrant neighbors, it is also time to show support and solidarity. Let us come together with our city leadership and neighbors to send a resounding message that hate has no home in Framingham,” wrote Rep. Sousa.
The event starts at 5:30 p.m. in front of the Memorial Building at 150 Concord Street.
On March 29, a Marlborough woman was arrested on charges of assault & battery with a deadly weapon after a “road rage” incident in downtown Framingham.
SOURCE posted a video sent by a reader of the attack on March 31.
On April 4, the City of Framingham Mayor issued a statement, as did Rep. Sousa, and Framingham Police said they were investigating the incident further to determine if it was a hate crime and if the attack was xenophobic.
