Brazil police shoot Indians – Urgent action

Police in southern Brazil yesterday killed a Terena Indian and wounded several others while violently evicting them from their land.
Elsewhere in Brazil, an eviction order was served on Kayapo, Arara, Munduruku and Xipaia Indians occupying the controversial Belo Monte dam site. Armed police have surrounded the protesters and tensions are rising amid fears that there will be similar violence.
Please email the Brazilian President asking her to recognize Terena Indian territories and consult with the indigenous occupiers of the Belo Monte dam site.

Dictator on trial for indigenous genocide

During the military dictatorship of José Efrain Ríos Montt, around 200,000 people, almost all of them members of Guatemala’s indigenous population, were killed or disappeared. Montt is the first ever head of state to be tried for genocide.

Sign the pledge to stop ‘human safaris’

Every day hundreds of tourists travel along the Andaman Trunk road in the hope of ‘spotting’ members of the Jarawa tribe. The Supreme Court of India ordered in 2002 that the road should be closed, yet it remains open. Help put pressure on the islands’ government by pledging not to holiday in the Andaman Islands while the road remains open to tourists.
