Brazil’s Supreme Court to resume trial again on native lands

Brazil’s Supreme Court to resume trial again on native lands

Brasilia, Sep 8 (Prensa Latina) The Supreme Federal Court (STF) has on Wednesday's agenda to resume the judgment on the so-called timeframe limitation that will define the life of indigenous peoples and the future of Brazil's indigenous lands demarcation.

On September 2, the STF postponed Wednesday’s session, in which Attorney General of the Republic, Augusto Aras, opposed this transitory criterion.

The timeframe limitation reached the STF through a repossession lawsuit filed by the Government of Santa Catarina state against the Xokleng people, concerning the Ibirama-Laklãnõ Indigenous Territory, where Guarani and Kaingang indigenous people also live.

Representatives of aboriginal organizations and communities denounced at the Supreme Court last week that this timeframe limitation is unconstitutional and, therefore, it cannot be used as a criterion for land demarcation.

Indigenous women from 150 communities nationwide arrived in Brasilia on Tuesday, where they are joining this Wednesday more than 1,000 protesters who have been camping for three weeks to accompany the result of the judgment at the STF.

The 2nd Indigenous Women’s March will take place on Thursday in Brasilia.
