Brazil: Guarani ‘despair’ as female indigenous leader murdered
Posted by Survival and Red Power Media An indigenous leader has been killed in central-western Brazil, after campaigning for her tribe’s ancestral land to be returned.
Marinalva Manoel, a 27-year-old Guarani Indian, was allegedly raped and stabbed to death. Her body was found on the side of a highway on Saturday.
Last month Marinalva traveled over 1,000 km to the capital, Brasília, with a delegation of Guarani leaders, to insist that the authorities fulfil their legal duty to return the land to the Guarani before more of their people are killed.
The Guarani Council, Aty Guasu, which voices the Indians’ demands, has released a letter calling on the authorities to investigate the murder, and proclaiming, “No more Guarani deaths!” The letter detailed a whole series of death threats against them. Marinalva’s body was naked with dozens of stab wounds.
