The rights of the indigenous peoples are threatened by this genocidal government that only wants to “pass the cattle” and explore the lands of the original people. Find out what are the biggest threats to indigenous peoples that are being guided by the National Congress.
Demarcation of indigenous lands
The Chamber analyzes PL 490/2007, by Deputy Homero Pereira (PR-MT), to determine that indigenous lands are demarcated through laws. If the proposal is approved, the competence to determine the demarcation of indigenous lands becomes the Congress
Mining on indigenous lands
Mining, tourism, livestock, exploitation of water and hydrocarbon resources. All of these activities may be authorized on indigenous lands, as per bill 191/2020. The measure is also a promise of Bolsonaro's campaign.
Project weakens indigenous people's land rights
Deputy Covatti Filho of the PP filed a bill amending art. 246, §3 of Law 6,015, of December 31, 1973, which “provides for public records, and makes other arrangements”.
Thus, notary notices that the area is in dispute and is claimed by the Union for being indigenous land, would only be made after approval, guaranteeing the alleged owner the use of the land and access to public financing.
Bill 2633/2020 deals with land tenure regularization of federal properties. One of the arguments against the text is that it encourages land grabbing, by allowing the allocation of federal public lands of up to 2,500 hectares without bidding with prices below the market to the invaders areas.
According to data the Amazon Environmental Research Institute (IPAM), land grabbing was responsible for deforesting 3,416 square kilometers in the Amazon between August 1, 2018 and June 31, 2019.
