The Federation of Agriculture and Livestock of Paraíba (Faepa) and the Association of Sugarcane Planters of Paraíba (Asplan) created a Working Group to monitor actions related to the demarcation of indigenous lands in the South Coast region of the State. The institutions have already been debating the topic and formalized the partnership today (1), in a meeting at Faepa’s headquarters.

According to a survey carried out by the institutions, the implementation of the demarcations has the potential to reach 963 rural properties, in the municipalities of Conde, Pitimbu and Alhandra, in a total area of ​​28,600 thousand hectares. The area is being studied as a Tabajara Indigenous Land, as established in Funai ordinance 878/2024.

“This issue doesn’t just affect agricultural companies. The demarcations can also involve industries, commerce and the service sector in these cities. Therefore, in the future, we will also invite other entities to join this working group”, stated the president of Faepa, Mário Borba.

The union of potentially affected economic sectors was also one of the points highlighted during the speech by the president of the National Commission for Land Affairs of the CNA, Marcelo Bertoni, who is also president of the Federation of Agriculture and Livestock of Mato Grosso do Sul (Famasul).

“The creation of the group is important to monitor the progress of the processes, so that the rites are carried out correctly. Because while we are not opposed to the rights of original peoples, we do not want the correction of an injustice, as they claim, to generate another against the producer”, he defended.

From now on, the legal advisors of the two institutions will work in partnership and with the producers represented by the entities. “Our work will be hard and we count on the help of all the owners”, summarized Asplan’s legal advisor, Ricardo Afonso.

The meeting was also attended by directors and technical advisors from Faepa and Asplan. Also participating in today’s debate were Conde’s planning secretary and attorney general, Márcio Simões, and the attorney general, Marcos Ramalho.

“It is important that society follows the entire process. This group is made up of people and businesspeople who may be affected by the demarcation. So this participation guarantees both that they understand what the original peoples are demanding, and that they defend their own rights”, summarized attorney Marcos Ramalho.

CNA already follows indigenous issues and the entire country

For more than 15 years, since the demarcation process of the Raposa Serra do Sol indigenous land, the Brazilian Agriculture and Livestock Confederation (CNA) has been monitoring land issues related to original peoples.

CNA’s legal consultant, Rudy Ferraz, is one of the professionals who follows this topic and guided participants on the procedures adopted in demarcations.

“Law 14,701 of 2023 and other recent decisions of the Federal Supreme Court brought legal certainty to rural producers. Therefore, our guidance is that you monitor the situation in the state to check whether the law is being complied with”, defended Rudy.
