See on Scoop.itGlobal Rumblings

Lilleen Dee Rohe‘s insight:

Federal Brazilian police and military personnel, some wearing UNITED NATIONS INSIGNIA, are forcibly relocating whole communities in Brazil at gunpoint under the guise of returning huge tracts of land to a small group of Indians whose ancestors were allegedly there at some point. Thousands of local residents who have lived in the area for decades or were even born there, however, are fighting back, with critics saying the government’s actions smack of Stalinism and may constitute crimes against humanity.
