  1. Indigenous leaders arrested

    Brazil: Two indigenous leaders were arrested and thrown in a maximum security jail for defending their tribal lands, Brazil’s Catholic bishops conference has revealed.

    Chief Rosivaldo Ferreira da Silva and his brother Givaldo Ferreira da Silva were held by police for denouncing the alleged invasion of tribal lands by wealthy landowners who oppose the government’s declaration of a new Amazonian people’s reservation at Tupinamba.

    “The jailing of these two important indigenous leaders in a federal maximum security prison constitutes another arbitrary act by the Federal Police,” the bishops declared.

    The Brazilian government continues with plans to build the massive Belo Monte Dam on the Xingu River in the Amazon rainforest, despite massive domestic and international opposition. The 11.2 billion dollar dam will flood an estimated 500 square kilometers of the Amazon rainforest and threaten the survival of tens of thousands of indigenous and traditional peoples who depend on the Xingu River for their livelihoods. The Kayapó leader Raoni Metuktire, who gained international exposure touring the world with Sting, said indigenous men from the Xingu were preparing their bows and arrows in order to fight off the dam. “I think that today the war is about to start once more and the Indians will be forced to kill the white men again so they leave our lands alone.”
