A Parliamentary Commission of Inquiry (CPI) on NGOs decided to summon the Minister of Indigenous Peoples, Sonia Guajajara, according to Revista West. The Senate hearing will take place on November 28.
Sonia will provide clarifications on the appeal she made to countries for a “global mobilization”, in order to pressure the National Congress not to overturn President Lula’s vetoes on the time frame.
“I ask for your support and demonstration against the overturning of President Lula’s vetoes on the time frame”, said the minister, at the annual meeting on Social and Sustainable Development of the Club of Madrid, held yesterday. “Advancing and approving this thesis is a setback for indigenous rights and the protection of territories. Without the protection of territories, human rights are further violated and it becomes more difficult to advance in environmental management and biodiversity preservation.”
Carried out in Itamaraty Palacethe event in which Sonia participated brought together hundreds of authorities, diplomats and international experts in the areas of social and sustainable development.
