"Bolsonaro facilitates the genocide of indigenous peoples": Sonia Guajajara
The coordinator of the Articulation of Indigenous Peoples of Brazil accused Jair Bolsonaro of allowing the genocide of indigenous peoples in Brazil. It also ensures that the damage caused in the Amazon rainforest will take years to recover.
Bolsonaro does not support indigenous peoples
At present, at least 33 thousand sources of fire have not been controlled, and they continue to consume the Amazon forests. The event occurs in an area that belongs to a little more than a third of the forest reserves in the Amazon. However, it particularly affects indigenous protected areas.
"So far we have not received any support from the Armed Forces or the national fire brigades (...) We are beginning to despair because it has been burning for ten days, and we have not been able to control it." It was the protest message that Sônia Guajajara sent.
Another warning issued by NGOs is that the biggest fires coincide where there is more deforestation and where crimes against the indigenous population have gone unpunished.
Although the government sent 44,000 men to put out the forest fires, the force is insufficient as a result of the flames that continue to destroy hectares of forest. Now, new fires are appearing in an uncontrolled way that attack indigenous peoples and do not allow entry to reduce them.

"The Awá people, who remain isolated, are approaching other villages because they are running out of water. This desperation is, without a doubt, the least conducive to an indigenous group making its first contacts with other social nuclei ". It was the warning made by Sônia Guajajara.
Now Brazil is preparing to quantify the losses of diversity due to the fires, as well as to face the health problems caused by the smoke caused. Another problem that worries the international community is the disappearance of indigenous peoples who were in danger of extinction.
