LETTER OF SUPPORT TO FIGHT AGAINST DAMS

LETTER OF SUPPORT TO FIGHT AGAINST DAMS

In Mebêngôkre, of villages Kremoro, Piaracu, Jatoba, Kretire, Bytire, Nasepotiti, and Sokwe, We support our relatives Xirkin, Juruna, Arara, Munduruku and other in the fight against Belo Monte and Tapajos rivers and Teles Pires that threaten the survival of our people.

We reject the sending of the National Force against our relatives in the construction site-maintain occupancy of Belo Monte, for protection of researchers who were doing the feasibility study of the Tapajos River dams and invasion of the village Sai Cinza that ended with the death of a relative Munduruku and with two injured by gunshot of the National Force.

We reject the lack of government dialogue with the indigenous people and the economic groups that want to make changes in the Brazilian Constitution, through their representatives in the The National Congress, as the “ruralists” and the mining companies. We want the Government to adhere to Convention 169 and fulfill its role in the defence of the rights of indigenous peoples to their traditional lands, without which there is no future for us.

In indigenous leadership, Mebêngôkre have always been against the construction of dams or any other action that harm the environment and their populations.
