Why Vinegar?

Brazil and Turkey are thousands of kilometers away from each other, but they have something in common: both countries went out to the streets to protest for their rights as citizens and are now struggling against the excessive violence and oppression from the police.

Piero Locatelli, reporter of a brazilian newsletter, was arrested on the 13th of June, during the coverage of the protests in São Paulo.

He was carrying something to protect himself from the police: a bottle of vinegar.
