In another day of protests against the time frame, indigenous people resumed this Friday (15), the blockade of highways in Mato Grosso do Sul.
At least two state roads are already closed – the MS-156, between Dourados and Itaporã, and the MS-379, between the district of Panambi (Dourados) and Douradina. There is still no record of blockade of federal highways, according to the PRF (Federal Highway Police).
It is the fourth week followed by protests by indigenous peoples against the thesis that could impede at least 88 land demarcation processes in Brazil, some in Mato Grosso do Sul.
Voting on the time frame thesis was suspended last week, after the vote of the rapporteur, Minister Edson Fachin. He voted against the criterion that the Indians can only demand the demarcation of lands occupied by them, before the date of promulgation of the Constitution of 1988. In this afternoon’s session, Minister Nunes Marques must resume reading his vote.
