Damiana Cavanha, Guarani Kaiowá leader putting her life on the line for her community’s land needs you to help pressure the Brazilian authorities to help her people urgently.
The community has been evicted and now the families are forced to live in appalling conditions on the side of the road where malnutrition and disease are rife and where some Guarani have already been killed.
Most of the Guarani’s land has been stolen from them. Brazil’s agri-business industry has been trying to keep tribal people away from their territories for decades. They subject them to genocidal violence and racism so they can steal their lands, resources and labor in the name of “progress” and “civilization.”
Damiana needs you to pressure the Brazilian authorities to return their ancestral land, their tekoha.
