Over 3,000 Brazilian Indigenous Protest Land Theft Outside Congress

Brasilia, April 26 (RHC)-- In Brazil, more than 3,000 indigenous people demonstrated in front of Congress Tuesday, protesting ongoing theft of their land and resources, which they say has worsened under President Michel Temer.

The demonstrators carried hundreds of coffins to symbolize the genocide of indigenous nations in Brazil.  The protests turned into clashes after the police attacked the demonstrators with tear gas, prompting some to respond by throwing spears and shooting arrows at the police.
