This is the second part of Augusto Paim and MauMau's comic report examining life in the slums of Rio de Janeiro in the wake of massive police actions to sweep out drug cartels. In preparation for hosting the World Soccer Cup in 2014 and the Olympics in 2016, Rio launched heavy-handed police raids in 2010 to begin clearing out the slums--or favelas--where the most impoverished citizens live. Part One dealt with the police raids and the effect it had on residents. Now Inside The Maré focuses more closely on one favela and the lives of the people who live there.
