Manifesto in solidarity with the Munduruku Indians village Teles Pires

Posted in 11/8/2012

The conflict occurred yesterday involving Munduruku Indians village Teles Pires, border between Pará and Maranhão, and the Federal Police of Brazil, is another chapter in a novel marked by neglect, violence and destruction of lands and indigenous peoples. Balance until now known: many Indians seriously injured; children, the elderly and women threatened and humiliated by federal agents;
and a Munduruku murdered with four gunshots in the chest and one to the head.
At the end of the 15TH century, even before the arrival of the Portuguese, the Spanish had already touched the mouth of the Amazon River, leading to from some dozens of Indians to be sold as slaves in Europe.
At the end of the 16TH century, English and Dutch also began to converge on this area with the aim of exploiting its natural resources. As initially not found gold or silver, broke for the exploitation of plant resources, as well as capture the natives to work as slaves.
500 years have passed since European arrival to pindorama, but yesterday repeats what occurred at the beginning of the invasion. Indian (Munduruku) with arrow defending your territory, and white (federal Police) with firearm shooting down who was on the way.
Behind all this are the interests of entrepreneurs, eager for mineral resources in indigenous lands; landowners of agribusiness; contractors builders of mega-dams on the Xingu River and wood (the Tapajós is the cue ball), among others. The Brazilian Government gives support to capital project for the nature, design of exhaust natural riches of the Amazon, and the world.
For all this, blame the Government for what has happened in the village Teles Pires. We require that the facts be established and those responsible for the attacks and murder of Munduruku Indian be criminally penalized. Finally, we reiterate our denunciation against the project of the Government of Brazil. Forest destruction project, rivers and of life in the Amazon.
