The Essay

GGN Newspaper – the leaders of the Guarani-Kaiowá Indians Aty Guasu sent, last Saturday (1), a letter to the President of the STF (Supreme Federal Court) Joaquim Barbosa to report abuses suffered by the indigenous population throughout history. The decision was made after a General Assembly in conjunction with the Terena people. Last Thursday (30), the terena Jhon Gabriel was killed during operation of the Federal Police on the farm in Sidrolândia Buritis, in Mato Grosso do Sul.

In the letter, the Indians reported that do not take advantage of parts of the land approved by the President of the Republic, but that farmers take advantage of the land. “The information is that the approval of indigenous lands by the President of Brazil is partially suspended by an injunction of the Supreme Court (STF), without date forecast for the final judgment of merit. As a result of non-judgment by the Supreme Court, we suffer various indigenous violence, particularly the actions of genocide of the 21st century, promoted by the farmers that endures to this day. “

Journalist Suzi Ozaki, SBT channel, followed the media coverage about the operation of PF and stated, on the social network Facebook, which the Indians have adopted peaceful posture throughout the negotiation process. “I also noticed that no one wanted to go to the clash, everyone expected the competent authorities read, federal Government, a peaceful solution that met those involved. Earned himself a few days, deputies went to Brasília and returned without a solution. The sentence of the judge of the first Federal Court of Campo Grande on May 29 came as a declaration of war: immediate repossession. What was already announced, became reality. PF and Cigcoe were fulfill the law with lethal and non-lethal weapons and the Indians reacted. “

According to her, the neglect, which recurs in the matter of indigenous rights, contributed to a great violence in the case of repossession of Buriti Farm. “Balance of several injured, one dead Indian, home farm burned and the problem is still there, more latent, more concrete than ever. There the Supreme wakes up, sends a representative to find out what is rotten in the Kingdom of MS Rousseff wakes up and realizes a urgent meeting today with his ministers to discuss the conflicts. “

Read excerpt from letter of Guarany-Kaiowá:

“Firstly, we point out that here in the State of Mato Grosso do Sul, there are traditional indigenous lands recognized by the Government since 1990, already declared indigenous lands, which the Ministry of Justice and the President of the Republic already give right to usufruct of land to indigenous peoples, by order of the Minister of Justice published in the Diário Oficial da União. As a result, the lands have already been approved as Indigenous Land by Decree of the President of the Republic. But so far (after more than a decade of approval) we enjoy not party of our land approved by the President of the Republic, but farmers continue exploring. The information is that the approval of indigenous lands by the President of Brazil is partially suspended by an injunction of the Supreme Court (STF), without date forecast for the final judgment of merit. As a result of non-judgment by the Supreme Court, we suffer various indigenous violence, particularly the actions of genocide of the 21st century, promoted by the farmers that endures to this day.
