Newsletter of the Council of Aty Guasu Guarani Kaiowá against genocide and The Guarani-Kaiowá leaders of the tekoha Itay-Panambi-Douradina-MS (Guarani-Kaiowá land conflicts since 2005), reported that since yesterday several armed men began to surround and shoot the shots about the Guarani and Itay Kaiwá camp. Yesterday, the fact was communicated to FUNAI and Federal Police, but did not attend to Itay in conflict.
Today, according to the communities and leaders, a group of armed Ratna returned to attack the camp Itay, shooting and threatening to kill the entire communities and burn the tents of the indigenous, when shots fired by a group of natives, so the Indians tried to disarm men armed and karai clashed with this group of armed gunmen. Since yesterday, to avoid the attack in camp and Itay were communicated repeatedly to FUNAI, MPF and Federal Police, but they did not attend.
Today, the Guarani-Kaiowá community of Itay was attacked again by armed men on their land conflict, so we ask for the investigation of the fact by the Federal Police. Since the Guarani-Kaiowá community of the tekoha Itay was shot and attacked the leaders are threatened since yesterday tonight, climate is tense in Itay in conflict, the risk of new attack is imminent. For this reason, we ask urgently the presence of Federal Police and Security Commission of human right in the camp community of Itay.
The communities of Guarani-Kaiowá tekoha Itay inform, each time, being surrounded and threatened by armed groups, therefore, request the presence of the Funai agents and Federal Police to avoid the new attack and clash with the gunmen of the farms.
We look forward with urgency the position of the federal authorities.
