Your Excellency,

In the state of Mato Grosso do Sul in Brazil, the indigenous people Guarani-Kaiowб has become victim of a genuine genocide. Dozens of Indians have been killed or are hit by violence and suffer from hunger; many have died from hunger or have committed suicide. Main causes: expansion of agribusiness monocultures, the non-demarcation of their territory by the federal government, the inefficiency of the judiciary system and the non-recognition of their rights by the State and the local authorities.

The federal Public Ministry has elaborated a Trajectory for Adjustment of Conduct (TAC) that has been signed in November 2007 by the president of FUNAI (Indigenous Affairs) and the indigenous chiefs. This procedure demands the recognition and demarcation of 36 Guarani-Kaiowб territories. These tasks have started with much delay and risk to be paralyzed by pressures from agribusiness and local politicians.

Given the serious situation and the fact that Brazil is signatory of several International Treaties that recognize the right to property of indigenous territories to guarantee their right to food, I kindly ask you to do all the necessary to identify and delimit without further delays the indigenous territories as defined by the TAC.

Excellentie,

In de staat Mato Grosso do Sul in Braziliл, is het inheemse volk Guarani-Kaiowб het slachtoffer van een echte genocide. Tientallen inheemsen zijn vermoord of lijden onder geweld en honger; heel wat mensen zijn recentelijk gestorven of hebben zelfmoord gepleegd. Voornaamste oorzaken: de uitbreiding van industriлle landbouwmonoculturen, geen afbakening van hun grondgebied door de federale regering, de gebrekkige werking van justitie en de weigering van nationale en lokale overheden om hun rechten te erkennen.

Het federale Openbare Ministerie heeft een snelprocedure (TAC) uitgewerkt die ondertekend werd in November 2007 door de secretaris van FUNAI (Inheemse Zaken) en de inheemse leiders. Daarin wordt de erkenning en de afbakening van 36 oorpronkelijke Guarani-Kaiowб gebieden afgedwongen. Deze activiteiten zijn met veel vertraging gestart en dreigen geboycot te worden door druk vanwege agrobusiness en lokale verkozenen.

De situatie is ernstig. Braziliл heeft meerdere Internationale Verdragen getekend die het recht op eigendom van inheemse grondgebieden erkennen om hun recht op voedsel te garanderen. Daarom vraag ik u met aandrang het nodige te doen om zonder verdere vertraging het inheemse land af te bakenen, zoals voorzien in de TAC.
