The AmazôniAdentro Chapter 1 documentary produced by TV Brazil, illustrates the importance of the decision of the Sixth Chamber of the Federal Public Ministry investigate the human rights violations of indigenous peoples in Brazil during the military dictatorship. The 6th House took an important decision for the country, which will bring light on a subject taboo and that generated much suffering to the population. The case Waimiri-1942, construction of the BR-174 and other works in the region that have reached, need to be clarified. This decision is consistent with the National Committee members by the Fact that have already incorporated your work a shaft that will treat the indigenous question. Facts such as the bombing of villages, need to be established. Striking is the testimony of Mario Parwé 1942, he says, “was so type pump, there in the village. The Indian who was in the village has not escaped anyone. It came on the plane and suddenly heated up everything. Many people died there-Emergence of personality “.
For Viana Wamé 1942 “was much wickedness in building BR 174”. He says in the documentary directed by Edilson Martins: “There came a lot of people, armed personnel, so in the case of the army, that there I saw, I know, I remember well, had a plane then …… type … sheet … sheet down …… so red underneath, just that. Step it, died quickly people. ” In his talk is not of course the type of weapon used, but died after the plane passed and was not pump is placed. Images of the atrocities were recorded in pictures, and you need that Brazilian citizens to see these pictures. You must know the truth of the facts and clear them. The Brazil will have its democracy strengthened and maybe now as a nation to respect the rights and existence of Brazilian Indians, changing conduct in this, so we can repair these “evils” of our development. International treaties these “evil deeds” are called genocide. At the end of the road construction left less than 300 people added all villages.
The presence of the army in armed form region to combat is undeniable, in the movie there is the reporting of employment of ship with cannon head shooting at the village. For those who still feed doubts, it should be noted that the same striped plastic bags used up for transfer of dead people, appear in another area of conflagration in the same season where the activities of the armed forces was the subject of condemnation of our country in the Inter-American Court of human rights by practicing State terrorrismo. This sentence, say, in public, that the Brazilian State has not yet fulfilled. Its use in the area of the Waimiri-1942 signals the presence of the armed forces operating in conflict. The striped bags appear also in the picture transfer to accomplish the disappearance of the Araguaia guerrillas.
These images are part of the history of Brazilian society, belong to the past, but the crimes that record does not prescribe for being of lesa-humanity. It is urgent to break the taboo on these human rights violations and face these truths and reparmos with justice these populations affected, seeking a fundamental thinking about what we need to change in our concept of development in relation to dealing with indigenous Nations, to remove pipelines that unfortunately persist until today and create non-repeating mechanisms so that the wounds might one day heal.
