RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL – Brazilian president, Jair Bolsonaro, reiterated on Wednesday that the “ancestral right” that the indigenous people claim over the lands could lead to “losing a Germany and a Spain together” and cause “a catastrophe” to the country’s agriculture.
The president insisted on the issue on the eve of the Supreme Court to continue a trial in which he will have to pronounce himself in relation to the so-called “temporary framework”, which only recognizes as indigenous land that which the native peoples occupied on October 5, 1988, when the current Brazilian Constitution was promulgated.
