Federal Brazilian police and military personnel, some wearing United Nations insignia, are forcibly relocating whole communities in Brazil at gunpoint under the guise of returning huge tracts of land to a small group of Indians whose ancestors were allegedly there at some point. Thousands of local residents who have lived in the area for decades or were even born there, however, are fighting back, with critics saying the government’s actions smack of Stalinism and may constitute crimes against humanity.
Since the latest controversial operation began in November in the state of Mato Grosso, according to authorities and news reports, citizens opposed to being stripped of their property and homes have been doing everything in their power to stop the assault — setting up road blocks, battling heavily armed federal forces with stones, sticks, and Molotov cocktails, torching government trucks, protesting, and refusing to leave. Others cried as they tore down their own simple houses under armed guard.
i did a story awhile back about an indigenous tribe of indians in Brazil who were being forced off their lands and the whole tribe threatened to kill themselves if that happened. Im not sure what has happened since but as I have not heard of anything i’ll assume they are still alive and fighting. Good luck to them. At least if they had guns, and this is the point, they could defend themselves and that is another example why the 2nd amendment is so important to America. Our government says they would never do something like that, do you trust the government?
