Take action on behalf of indigenous people whose ancestral home is being confiscated in the Amazon


Only three days after the reoccupation of the Belo Monte Dam began, the fate of 170 indigenous people is at stake. On Tuesday, the Federal Court in Altamira ordered them to leave by 4 pm yesterday or they would be removed by Federal Police. They responded by tearing up the order and refused to leave by the deadline. Instead, they are standing strong and are demanding that President Dilma's Chief of Staff, Gilberto Carvalho, come meet with them. Their letter to the Brazilian government is here.
