São Paulo police reign of terror against Free Pass Movement : "Free Pass Movement São Paulo and Fanfare MAL understand that the existence of such research is the continuation of the systematic violation of the rights of people who have been arrested illegally. The police visits to people in their homes and verbalized threats are nothing more than a bully to demobilize our struggles. Therefore, we advocate not attending to testimony, exercising thus our constitutional right to remain silent.

Socialist Party in Joinville supports the Free Fare Movement (MPL)

MPL Joinville - for a life without turnstiles: NOTE TO SUPPORT THE MOVEMENT FREE PASS: "The municipal leadership of the Party of Socialism and Liberty (SoL) has, through this, to sympathize with the militants Free Pass Movement (MPL), victims of clear attempted criminalization of social movements.

...In this sense, the SoL sympathizes and is positioned opposite to the current project, because in our view, is extremely harmful to the city we desire: a plural city, democratic, participatory urban planning that seeks human development and unhindered mobility. That seeks to build as a city of Joinville rights, and not as a mere "market town" that reproduces social inequality, concentrated income and worsening the quality of life of the majority of our people. "
