There are 20,000 illegal miners within the Yanomami’s territory in the #Amazon, who are poisoning rivers with mercury and attacking #indigenous people - as the terrible images of the past few days demonstrate:

Bolsonaro's government should be ashamed that Brazil's largest #indigenous territory has been invaded for years. Unfortunately, the opposite is true: #Bolsonaro and his allies encourage #illegal gold miners, perpetuating this tragic scenario.

Eu, Dario Yanomami, encontrei hoje com o @GeneralMourao e vou contar como foi.
Fui até Brasília, mesmo com todos os riscos de viajar no meio dessa pandemia, para entregar a denúncia do povo Yanomami nas mãos do Vice presidente.
A deputada @JoeniaWapichana encaminhou nosso pedido e me acompanhou na reunião hoje de manhã. Eu disse para o general que os garimpeiros estão matando os Yanomami. Mataram mais dois parentes nessa semana. Isso precisa ser investigado.
Dois yanomami foram assassinados e muitos outros podem morrer com a violência dos garimpeiros. Além de atirar nos parentes eles estão levando a xawara #Covid19 para dentro das nossas aldeias
