PEACEFUL OCCUPATION AND CULTURAL MANIFEST OF MARACANÃ IN FUNAI VILLAGE-MUSEU DO ÍNDIO, BOTAFOGO
Today, March 23, 2013-Saturday, at around 3:0 pm, the natives of the village Maracanã occupied, peaceful and culturally, the dependencies of the FUNAI-National Indian Foundation, Museu do Índio, Botafogo-Rua das Palmeiras, 55, in Rio de Janeiro.
The occupation is in rejection of an articulated and coordinated action in which saw the economic power with entrepreneurs, public managers, judges, court officers and State security forces, who had the clear purpose of expropriating the Indian territory and cultural damage, material and immaterial to the most vulnerable segment of society – the INDIAN national.
The expropriation of the property of the old Indian Museum at the Maracanã, so nipped disrespectful, humiliating and illegal without the protection, support and operations of the Federal Government through the National Indian Foundation FUNAI, AGU-Attorney General and the Union MPF-Federal prosecutors.
We call on the population to visit the Museum and participate in the cultural activities of the indigenous occupants, through experience and learning their culture-songs, dances, paintings, celebration of ancestry and storytelling, along the lines of what was done in the village maracana.
We appreciate the support of all segments of society in solidarity to our cause.
CLAIM: that the Federal Government in return the space of Village Maracanã, to give continuity to the indigenous cultural activities.
