Ilê Aiyê’s 2018 March for Consciência Negra Cancelled

Ilê Aiyê’s traditional march up the Ladeira de Curuzu and to Pelourinho — Salvador’s Centro Histórico — scheduled for today, November 20th, 2018, has been cancelled due to lack of funding.

The traditional march from Campo Grande to the Praço Municipal (top of the elevator), however, will take place, this year honoring Môa do Katendê and Marielle Franco, victims of political violence, among others.

The march is scheduled to begin at 2 p.m., but in reality will start some time after this.
