Indigenous Women’s March in Brasilia postponed

With the participation of more than five thousand people, from all regions of the country, the 2nd March of Indigenous Women has been taking place since September 7th, in Brasília.

In the mobilization schedule, the official march of the movement was scheduled for this Thursday morning (9). However, under the threat of attacks by pro-Bolsonaro groups, the coordination of the National Articulation of Indigenous Women Warriors of Ancestrality (Anmiga) decided to reschedule the activity for tomorrow, the 10th.

In a statement, the National Articulation of Indigenous Women Warriors of Ancestrality (ANMIGA) highlights that the decision aims to guarantee the lives of the women, elderly, youth and children present in the mobilization.

“Extremist, fascist, armed groups, many identified with T-shirts written Agro continue invading the Esplanade of Ministries, with conniving looks from the GDF (Government of the Federal District) government and in support of Jair Bolsonaro. As a result, the Esplanade is blocked”, the document points out.

The organization emphasizes in a note that all eyes in the world are turned to Brazil.

“The national and international press is following our mobilization, reflecting around the world our struggle and what can happen. We will never accept that our women and peoples are subjected to such violence again! These chapters are pages from the past, which we are rewriting with our struggle, starting from the ground of our territories.

The II March of Indigenous Women will leave tomorrow [10] from our camp, to the streets, with our bodies and our voices echoing in the struggle for justice, freedom and the demarcation of our ancestral sacred lands”, concludes the organization.
