Less than 12:0 am after the eviction of the Buriti farm in Mato Grosso do Sul, the Indians returned to invade the farm.

 

The meeting at the Court of Mato Grosso do Sul, with judges, farmers and the representative of the National Council of Justice, ended without breakthrough. “We can’t live with these invasions, with discussions of this type, threatening people’s lives, to the patrimony of the people. We would like to respond to the Federal Government, “says Eduardo Elias, President of the agriculture Federation of Mato Grosso do Sul.
“We’ll try some interference with the Federal Government on how it will be resolved this dispute between indigenous and land owners. We have the clear certainty that the solution is not punctual as is happening, “says Rodrigo Rigamonte, auxiliary judge of the CNJ (National Council of Justice).
The indigenous leaders terenas arrived at the end of the meeting. A new meeting was scheduled for this Saturday. During the day, the weather remained tense in the area of the farm raided in Sidrolândia.
Nine indigenous leaders have teamed up to claim the area of 17 thousand hectares, exactly the ranch up for grabs. The Indians returned to invade the Buriti farm. According to Funai, this Friday (31), Indians burned houses, corrals and blocked the road.

On Thursday (30), the conflict began when the Indians withstood a writ of repossession. Images recorded by the military police of the State of Mato Grosso do Sul show that at least one Indian was armed.
“The Federal Police ended up seizing only a firearm with the Indians. Most are arrows, bordunas, machetes, that are used on a daily basis in agricultural production “, says Luiz Henrique Eloy, lawyer of the indigenous community.

The owner of the land, Ricardo Augusto Bacha, did not return to the Buriti farm. “A troop of peacemaking here, for this to be really at peace and the Government has to buy those areas. It’s just this solution, have no other, “he says.

The Indian killed in clash with police on Thursday has not yet been buried. The body remains in Sidrolândia in a mortuary.

Another farm, in the municipality of Aquidauana, also in Mato Grosso do Sul, was invaded on Friday (31). According to Funai, about 60 Indians terenas are camped on the farm. The owner of the land entered in Federal Court of Corumbá with the application for repossession.
