Alessandra Munduruku at COP 24



"We are asking a lot to support our cause, and our biggest cause is the demarcation of the territory."
Alessandra Munduruku did not go to Katowice, Poland, to participate in the 24th UN Conference on Climate, COP 24, but sent her message to national and international authorities through a video recorded in the village Sawré Muybu, in the Middle Tapajós, Pará , which is threatened by the construction of the São Luiz do Tapajós hydroelectric plant.
But she was very well represented by other indigenous leaders, such as the executive coordinator of the Articulation of the Indigenous Peoples of Brazil (Apib), Sonia Guajajara, and the executive coordinator of the Coordination of Indigenous Organizations of the Brazilian Amazon (Coiab), Nara Baré, who were at the Conference to denounce the risks to which the traditional peoples are exposed. In addition to threats of non-demarcation of indigenous lands, the new government has not yet resolved the fate of FUNAI, which should remain in the Ministry of Justice.
"We do not want anything from anyone. We just want what's ours. Our rights. In the Constitution it says that the government has the duty to demarcate our territory, "concludes Alessandra.
