This Friday (28), Tembé Indians burned truckloads of wood in Cachoeira do Piriá, Northeastern Pará. According to them, the wood was being removed illegally from indigenous upper Rio Guamá reserve.

According to the Indians Tembé, the protest is against the invasion of loggers in the reserve and against the illegal felling of the forest in the Indian reservation. The area has 267 thousand hectares.

The National Indian Foundation (Funai) in Belem, reported that the Indians Tembé already sent a document reporting intrusions of illegal felling and timber in the forest. Funai said, though, that will bring together representatives from the areas of security of the environment to evaluate a way to contain intrusions.
