#BBCtrending: #Rolezinhos, Brazil’s ‘flashmob’ trend

Young Brazilians – many of them black – have been taking part in controversial flashmob-style gatherings in shopping centres in Brazil – causing an intense debate on social media about race and class.

Young people around the world often hang out at shopping centres. So far, so unusual. But over the past five weeks in Sao Paulo – Brazil’s biggest city – there have been a series of large scale gatherings, called rolezinhos, organised via Facebook. The first – and biggest so far – was on 7 December at a shopping centre near the World Cup stadium. Organisers claim as many as 6,000 people took part. Since then, there have been a further five rolezinhos in the city and many more are planned for the coming weeks. Most of those taking part are young, black and from poorer areas.

There tends to be a bit of singing, but other than that, not a lot seems to happen – role is slang for hanging out with friends. But a number of shopping centres have applied for judicial orders allowing them to block entry to those they believe are taking part, arguing their presence is frightening and off-putting to customers. At the most recent rolezinho at the weekend, police are reported to have used tear gas and rubber bullets and harassed some of those taking part. YouTube videos of the events have had thousands of views, and the hashtag #rolezinhos has been trending on Twitter across Brazil for the past five days.


Rolezinho: flashmob-style gathering; large scale gathering

Há quem chame o Rolezinho simplesmente de “flash mob”. Veja um texto do a respeito:

Rowdy Brazilian youths are increasingly resorting to violent flash mobs in shopping malls, a phenomenon that is causing concern among authorities and shopkeepers. Known as “rolezinhos”, the sudden rampages are coordinated via social media, bringing together hundreds of thrill-seeking youths, mainly from underprivileged areas, who sometimes trash stores and cause disturbances.
