Kariri Xocó people continue in the struggle for land already demarcated

The righteousness of the rich white is quick to respond to demands from farmers, but slow to recognize indigenous rights

The Kariri Xocó won the 12th Federal Court of Alagoas (Arapiraca), but the farmers appealed to the Federal Regional Court of the 5th Region (Recife). Since the 9th of October 2014, the appeal is with the judge rapporteur, but so far has not been tried. More than one year and nine months of waiting!

They are actually decades. Are 500 years.

When farmers come with repossession orders are served in a few days!

Farmers who illegally occupied for more than 10 years the indigenous territory staked out have benefited throughout this delay. And they still earn actions against about 3,500 Kariri-Xoco, triggered by occupying their lands already demarcated.

It is against this and other injustices that Kariri Xocó are currently in mobilization and struggle, taking roads that pass through their land. We support solidarity of all people, especially the social movements and human rights.

We demand action from the competent bodies to approve and deliver the land who is an integral part of it: the indigenous peoples.

We demand the immediate suspension of the injunction in the action of repossession No Proc. 0800476-23.2016.4.05.8001, the 12th Federal Court of Alagoas (Arapiraca) and the immediate trial of No. Process: 200,780,010,002,947 by the TRF of the 5th Region.

PEOPLE TO INDIGENOUS SOLIDARITY IN FIGHT!
WE ARE ALL Kariri-Xoco!

People Kariri Xocó calls for help and solidarity in the struggle for their land

local justice benefits farmers repossession actions in the People Kariri Xocó land

The interim government Michel Temer full two months management marked by countless setbacks in several areas. With indigenous policies it was no different. The conflict has been raging between farmers and indigenous people who continue to fight for their land. Many areas identified and delimited by Funai (National Indian Foundation) as “land traditionally occupied by indigenous peoples”, as recommended by the Federal Constitution, are invaded and taken illegally by non-Indians.

Demarcated territories already suffer from the slowness of authorities in their protection.

The indigenous Kariri Xocó in Alagoas, in the municipality of Port Royal College, has constantly alerted to the risk of their Indigenous Land. In recent days they suffered the third areas of repossession already marked in favor of farmers and squatters.

The Support for Kariri Xocó Network has sought to assist and contribute to the fight of the people, by ensuring indigenous policies of recognition of indigenous rights. Among its actions shared a text on the current situation, in which relates the struggle of Kariri Xocó and outrage at the lack of justice.
