The issue of health is a cause of deaths and outrage to communities across the country, as reminded the leaders of the peoples of Goias and Tocantins. “We did this because this woman [Evanecilda] mind too much. You, kupê, are not worse with us? We do not expel the land? We do not kill, do not die and steal our resources? We are sorry, because we are not violent, not us. But not the big boss of Brasilia [Agbaje] come see us, hear Krishna, “he added. The expulsion was attended by Ana Paula Fonseca, Proxies Federal de Goiás, and Helen Parker, Tocantins. “It is regrettable that come this far. I agree with all this, I know I no longer have to believe. This has happened in Bahia and other States as well, “said Chawang Javaé. “What happened here is an act of righteous indignation. There are times that we are swallowing the Coordinator of DSEI, the bullies her. The Antonio Alves was invited. Why not come? Government attitudes worsen the situation and look forward to a return of the MPF, “said Wagner Krahô.
