Leaders asked safety and speed in the demarcation of lands

The guarani kaiowá Indians, obliged by Federal Court to vacate the land they live in the municipality of Iguatemi, in Mato Grosso do Sul, were received yesterday afternoon, 29, by the Deputy Attorney-General of the Republic, Deborah Duprat.

Accompanied by other leaders of ethnic Ñadeva, delivered a document requesting support from Federal prosecutors to ensure improvements in access to camp Kue Pyelito/Mbarakay, area occupied at fazenda Cambará.

For Deborah Duprat, who coordinates the Camara of the MPF, which deals with indigenous peoples and traditional communities, the situation of the Guarani kaiowás is “one of several instances where the omission of the State in the demarcation of indigenous lands generates dramatic reactions like this,” he said.

According to her, the situation of the Guarani kaiowás is similar to that experienced in the demarcation of the Raposa Serra do Sol indigenous land in Roraima. “There’s a huge reaction in the industry said production of Mato Grosso do Sul. There is a resistor that gets to be almost an institutional racism. The State putting its institutions against the Indians, “he said.

The Deputy said that the MPF has charged agility of Funai in disclosure of the report, but that the foundation comes bursting all periods. “Funai signed with the MPF, for about three years, a conduct adjustment term promising with deadlines for the identification of all indigenous areas in Mato Grosso do Sul. None of this has been accomplished. It is necessary that these processes are completed, “he said.

Today the indigenous leaders receive two more leaders of other ethnic groups to meet with the Minister of the Secretariat for human rights, Maria do Rosário, to deal with violations of human rights suffered by the Indians.
