Brazilian originary people remain mobilized after pause in land trial

Brasilia, Jun 9 (Prensa Latina) Indigenous leaders announced that the mobilization against the so-called temporary framework affecting native land rights will continue on successive days after the interruption of the trial in the Brazilian Supreme Court.

The interruption was caused on Wednesday by a request for a hearing by Minister André Mendonça.

By the internal rules of the Federal Supreme Court, the case must be returned for analysis in a maximum of 90 days.

“The request for a hearing made by the minister of (Jair) Bolsonaro, André de Mendonça, represents the continuity of violence against indigenous peoples,” said the executive coordinator of the Articulation of Indigenous Peoples of Brazil (APIB), Dinamam Tuxá, who insisted that the so-called trial of the century be done as soon as possible, and also stressed: “We demand that the STF resume the pattern urgently.”

The Supreme Court judges whether the jurisdiction of native lands should follow the criteria, which define that indigenous people can only claim their lands if they were occupied before the date of promulgation of the 1988 Constitution.

Currently, there are more than 300 Aboriginal land demarcation processes open in the country.

For native communities, the right to land, as well as their rights, is non-negotiable, as their story does not begin in 1988.

The Rede Brasil Atual portal assured that science confirmed the presence of native peoples in Brazil at least 12,000 years ago.
