“I just got back from busy construction of Belo Monte, spent the night there with journalist ISA Lang. She is still in bed.So, the situation is very tense at the construction si…te. The National Strength and military police made for overt rounds during the night. The Indians remained vigilant, walking between the access to the construction site, where the reporters (Liberal, Reuters, ISA) and some supporters, and the place where they are camped (300 metres of access). This morning several rumors ran, where the Attorney of the Republic requested by indigenous era but at the same time was viewed with apprehension, because the decision of the Federal Court of appeal-1 could deflarar a violent police action. The national force and PRF were present in large number from the 9. Heavily armed elements if played at the entrance of the construction site. The indigenous pass freely between the outside and the inside of the building. The 10:0 came to Estella, Funai, which was responsible for preparing the representative basically to ensure the comfort of the indigenous group. She spoke with Jairo Saw and with Candido. The conversation was apparently quiet. The speech is that they are in the process of dialogue, and not go out to finish this process. We know that the Attorney is very active trying to avoid an invasion that, knowing the munduruku Warrior tradition, could be disastrous. For now that’s it. The situation could evolve rapidly. abs from Altamira ” via ~ Marquinho Mota Munduruku Tapajós.
