This is everyday life in the Complexo do Alemão neighborhood, North Zone of Rio de Janeiro, the city that will receive in the coming days the world's biggest sporting event, the Olympics, and here there is an ongoing war. And in a society in armed conflict to peace is an interval between wars.
At the time of writing this essay, 27 people were injured in the Alemão and 11 were killed between residents and police. All this only in 2016. Amnesty International recently created the Crossfire application, a collaborative digital platform where people can register shootings of events in your region in Rio de Janeiro. Just two weeks after the release of more than 30 thousand people have installed the app and over 500 notifications reported shootings and / or gun shots in the metropolitan area of Rio de Janeiro. The Complexo do Alemão is one of the places with the most records.
