Brasilia, October 1 (RHC)-- Brazilian indigenous people kicked off a week-long protest in several cities to demand their constitutional rights to access the lands they inherited from their ancestors.
The protest, which was called by the Indigenous People’s Association of Brazil, supports the 1988 Constitution, which turns 25 years old on October 5th.
The demonstration includes action on Tuesday in front of the Brazilian National Congress in the capital Brasilia to reject attempts by rural legislators to promote a constitutional amendment that would abolish demarcations of aboriginal lands, previously set by the National Foundation of the Aboriginal People.
Other mobilizations and rallies are to take place in Sao Paulo and in northern Brazilian zones to call the attention of the citizens, authorities and legislators on the rights of the indigenous people.
