🇧🇷📡This week, Brazil broke two more –rather alarming– records:

Historic increases in deforestation, and historic increases in land conflicts. Come with us to untangle the unfortunate record breaking track keeping environmental protectors awake at night🧵

The Pastoral Land Commission @cptnacional published its 2020 report. Violence in rural areas reached an all time high: 1576 occurrences of conflicts over land, since 1985, when the reporting began. Also a 25% increase to 2019 and 57.6% to 2018.
On Friday, we've learned that deforestation in the Amazon surpassed 1K km2 in a month for the first time since
@inpe_mct Deter-B started monitoring, in 2016. Also an increase of 41% to the same period in the previous year.… #ClimateEmergency

The proposal changes the Statute of the Indian (1973) and updates PEC 215, allowing the suppression of indigenous rights guaranteed in the Constitution, among them, the permanent possession of their lands and the exclusive right over their natural resources. (2/5)
The project places demarcations under the so-called “time frame” rule, whereby only indigenous peoples who were in possession of their land on the promulgation of the Constitution (1988), or were in a legal dispute then, would have land rights direct with invaders. (3/5)
