16 indigenous ethnic groups closed the BR-364 on the morning of Monday (20), on the border between the States of Mato Grosso and Rondônia. The Indians want to veto the Decree 303, which restricts the indigenous cultural activities such as hunting, fishing, and expansion of the territory. According to the village chieftain Eduardo Mamaindê, Mamaindê, the highway will be released only after the presence of some authority that can represent them in Washington. The Federal Highway Police is spot on. The lock is 40 km de Vilhena, RO.

The congestion is reason for much complaint, primarily on the part of drivers.

The driver Lanfontaine Bamford, coming from Belo Horizonte, MG, with destination to Bethlehem, PA, says that this is the second lock that faces since they came out of Minas Gerais. The first was on the border of Mato Grosso with Goiás. Bamford fears losing its commitments. According to the driver, he must embark on a vehicle ferry in Porto Velho and then catch a flight, at 10:0 pm, with destination to Bethlehem. “Will not give time, “complains.

Curious The seller Anilton Retros is coming back to Cuiabá, MT, coming from an excursion to Alto Paraíso, RO. According to Bala, this is the first time he experiences a manifestation and also “had never seen Indian closely”. Kenneth joined others who were photographing the natives.

The lock was closed around 1:0 pm, according to the Federal Highway Police.
