Letter from the National Committee for the defence of indigenous peoples of Mato Grosso do Sul to President Dilma Rousseff and other officials of the Executive, legislative and judiciary
“… That approved the law all members require the lands expropriated for their families; that these requirements were published in the Official Gazette of the State whose number had the draw of 2 copies getting one in Cuiabá and the other came for the counties of expropriated for the purpose of real estate registry; desapropriatoria law cited is 1,077, number 1 Apr 1958; the statement said more than eight relatives of Mr Rachide Maclean among those who requested the granting of indigenous lands expropriated; There is still the case of the Indians in Dourados Kaiua, where the new State created an area of colonization and expropriated all the lands of the Indians, leaving them absolutely without any gleba; that charge is the Ministry of agriculture which was subordinate to the SPI … ” (Report, p. 2781-Testimonial Helio Jorge Bucker in November 19, 1967).
The National Committee for the defence of indigenous peoples of Mato Grosso do Sul-CONDEPI-MS, created in November 24, 2011, at a meeting held in Campo Grande/MS, at the headquarters of OAB/MS, resulting in commitments: the defence of the rights to life, physical and mental integrity, freedom and personal security of indigenous peoples of Mato Grosso do Sul; the defence of the people and of the indigenous people in their integrity as distinct peoples, the preservation and dissemination of their cultural values and ethnic identity of the indigenous peoples of Mato Grosso do Sul; and ownership and protection of the demarcations of Indian lands and the wide access to resources existing in them, come, ONCE AGAIN, in the face of serious human rights violations and violence that causes as a result of the lack of demarcation of indigenous lands in the State of Mato Grosso do Sul, expose and require the following:
Although general knowledge, including of that authority, the current situation in which they live more than seventy thousand Indians of Mato Grosso Sul, result of years and years of physical and moral torture imposed and followed acts of stealing their land, cattle and their crops, nothing concrete is done.
Protagonists of this cowardly and genocidal purposes spoliation have always been public authorities, mainly the federal Government and the State Government of Mato Grosso uno.
Fact that is repeated today, in the face of this Government from signaling to bureaucratise the demarcatório procedure, with the sole purpose of derail from time to time, the demarcations of land stolen from Indians in Mato Grosso do Sul and Brazil.
The position of the Brazilian Government, to deal with indigenous question unilaterally, contributes and stimulates the hatred among brothers (Indians and non-Indians), sowing the racism and prejudice in the countryside and in the cities of mato Grosso do sul-Projeto sorria.
That’s why if one crying, before the spilled blood, yesterday and today, to comply with applicable law. No emulation, no deception, to change rules now in injury to only supporting Government makes indigenous all the cruelties, tortures and burglaries reported (in part) in the report Forbes [1] and the only one responsible for the deaths that result from this confrontation between two parties that unreasonable, strictly speaking, are sisters.
Finally, the Brazilian State, in addition to not having so far punished the murderers, also did not find the bodies of Teacher Rolindo Vera, assassinated in October 2009 and John Gomes, leader assassinated in November 2011, and worse, with his pro status quo, will generate more deaths like that of Prince Gabriel, who was on the last day 5/30/2013 in the municipality Sidrolândia/MS.
The best way to right and respectfully, is this to ask for the third time, that this Presidency interfere personally, resolving the situation (demarcating the land and/or buying them and returning them to their rightful owners, and shall indemnify the right if necessary), considered one of the most serious cases of violation of human rights of the peoples of the Earth, and informing the address appearing in the footer the measures take effect since the sending of the first request in December 2011.
