Families of squatters in the indigenous area in MT will be relocated



Eighty families of squatters living in the area considered by Justice as the xavante indigenous Marãiwatsédé, in northeastern Mato Grosso, should begin to be carried out for settlements in the region from this Tuesday (18).

The General Secretariat of the Presidency of the Republic reported that 183 families were registered. The other 103 are still being analyzed.

Cannot be settled families that have other evidence of rural property, which have already been covered by agrarian reform program or who have income greater than three minimum wages.

Squatters occupy the area since 1992. The indigenous land was approved in 1998 by then-President Fernando Henrique Cardoso. In November this year, the families were notified by Justice officials, who have 30 days to leave the area of 165 hectares.

The squatters say the Funai (National Indian Foundation) purposely missed the demarcation of Marãiwatsédé to cover up a failure of Incra. The Foundation denies the accusation.

Families will be taken to fazenda Santa Rita, in Ribeirão Cascalheira (MT), where there are already resettled four years ago. Representatives of these farmers say there is no more space for new families. But, according to the federal Government, there are 250 lots available.

Each has area between 50 and 60 hectares.
