En Guatemala, Bolivia, Brasil y Ecuador los pueblos indígenas lideran la lucha contra los proyectos de extracción promovidos por compañía transnacionales. En los últimos días dos sentencias favorables para los pueblos originarios han logrado parar proyectos en territorio ecuatoriano y guatemalteco. Sin embargo, las políticas y la retórica del presidente brasileño Jair Bolsonaro siguen siendo un problema para las comunidades nativas de este país.

A Ocupação dos Carroceiros e das Carroceiras, localizada na rua das Petúnias,2841, abaixo da linha do trem (Antiga Av. das Camélias, Rua Aderbal Rodrigues Vaz), no bairro Tirol, região do Barreiro, em Belo Horizonte, MG, está ameaçada de ser despejada no dia 27 de dezembro de 2018, às 6 horas da manhã, após a Defesa Civil de Belo Horizonte apresentar laudo tendencioso que diz que a ocupação está localizada em área de risco, induzindo o Poder Judiciário a erro. É também desatualizado o laudo da Defesa Civil.

On Wednesday, 6 September 2017, Barbuda, the less known sister isle of the popular resort island of Antigua, bore the full brunt of Hurricane Irma as it struck the Leeward Islands of the Eastern Caribbean. The island suffered near total destruction: 95% of the island’s buildings were damaged, 60% of the population were rendered homeless, and a 2-year-old child was tragically killed. Antigua, on the older hand, was relatively untouched.

The legal rights afforded to Indigenous communities in Bolivia and Chile differ greatly. Val Reynoso investigates. 

Bolivia and Chile differ significantly in the ways their governments address issues pertaining to Indigenous peoples. These differences are caused by the neoliberal economic system and legacies from the Pinochet era in Chile, as well as the centering of Indigenous issues and redistribution of wealth in Bolivia.
