Indigenous People Deliver 200 Coffins at Brazilian Congress in Brasilia - Web Video (Portuguese Version)
A huge funeral procession is carried out in front of the Brazilian Congress by 3000 indigenous people from Acampamento Terra Livre (Free Land Camp), one of the largest mobilisation groups of indigenous people in Brazil.
They delivered 200 black mock coffins: "They are our relatives, murdered by old-fashioned public policies carried out by congressmen that don't respect our Constitution", explains Sônia Guajajara, indigenous leader.
The coffins were placed on the water and on the lawn in front of the entrance of the Brazilian Congress building, together with a 25 x 5 meter message reading in Portuguese "Demarcação Já!" (Demarcation Now!). Only few minutes later, the police responded with tear gas, violently scattering the peaceful indigenous protest.
In original language:
Povos indígenas levam centenas de caixões para o Congresso (Web Video)
Um gigantesco cortejo fúnebre tomou conta da Esplanada dos Ministérios na tarde desta terça-feira, dia 25. Cerca de três mil indígenas do Acampamento Terra Livre (ATL) – uma das maiores mobilizações de povos originários do Brasil – carregaram, em uma longa fila, aproximadamente 200 caixões negros até o Congresso Nacional.
“São nossos parentes assassinados pelas políticas retrógradas de parlamentares que não respeitam a Constituição Federal”, explica a liderança Sônia Guajajara.
Os caixões foram dispostos no espelho d’água e no gramado do Congresso ao lado de um banner de 25x5 metros com a mensagem “Demarcação Já!”. Poucos minutos depois, a Polícia Militar respondeu com bombas de gás, dispersando violentamente o protesto pacífico dos indígenas.

Indigenous Free Land Camp Demonstrations in Brasilia (Videos)
Indigenous people from the Acampamento Terra Livre, march in a peaceful protest to demand the demarcation of their land. The Acampamento Terra Livre (Free Land Camp) is one of the largest mobilization groups of indigenous people in Brazil.
The same indigenous group two days earlier carried out another demonstration to which the police responded with tear gas, violently scattering the peaceful protest. This second march was received peacefully and the Esplanada dos Ministérios became colourful with indigenous songs and dances.
The shoot includes footage from the launch of the song "Demarcação Já", which had the participation of more than 25 artists.
The artists have joined forces and talents in the song “Demarcação Já” (Demarcation Now) to call attention on the urgency for the legal recognition of Indigenous lands in Brazil, a process known as “Demarcation.”
