Raposa do Sol

Du 26 au 27 juin, Madame Pierângela Nascimento da Cunha (Wapichana) et Jacir José de Souza (Macuxi), deux indiens originaires de la Communauté de “Terre Indigène Raposa do Sol” (Etat Roraima dans l’Amazonie brésilienne), sont en Belgique pour solliciter un appui et une solidarité internationale à leur cause. Dans ce cadre, la commission organisatrice tient à vous informer la conférence de presse qu’ils tiendront:

le 26 juin à 19 H, auprès d’OCIPE, à la rue du Cornet 51 – B-1040 – Bruxelles

Ils y présenteront les menaces et violences subies par leurs communautés suite à une campagne menée par des riziculteurs, illégalement installés dans leur territoire. Ceux-ci visent une modification du décret qui a régularisé les limites de la réserve indigène Raposa do Sol en 2005.
