Terra Livre Camp needs our help

Acampamento Terra Livre (ATL) 2019- Campamento Terra Livre - Terra Livre Camp

Indigenous leaders from all over the country will gather in Brasília from April 24 to 26 for the 15th edition of Terra Livre Camp (ATL). The event is the greatest mobilization of the Brazilian indigenous peoples in the search for the maintenance of their rights.

Contribute with Terra Livre Camp

The main demands this year are against the stripping of Funai, the halt in demarcation of land, the municipalization of the health system, the 1988 timeframe, the invasions of the territories and the violence against the leaderships.

The event is funded by the Articulation of the Indigenous Peoples of Brazil (Apib) and by collective financing on the internet. Groceries and airline miles can also be donated to indigenous people living in remote locations.
We need your help for the Brazilian natives!

The importance of ATL:

The current president,Jair Bolsonaro, extinguished at once 30 councils and commissions whose function was precisely to mediate the dialogue between the State and society. This makes it even more important to hold events such as Camp Terra Livre (ATL). They are fundamental spaces for the exercise of democracy, debate and citizenship. The meeting does not receive a cent of public money, it is fully funded by indigenous and indigenist organizations, and by donations. The struggle of the forest peoples is also ours.
