A group of indigenous people and human rights groups in Brazil filed a complaint with the International Criminal Court (ICC) in the Hague last Friday, accusing Brazilian president borsonaro of committing humanitarian crimes, destroying the Amazon rainforest and violating the rights and interests of indigenous people, which is equivalent to the implementation of ecology and genocide. ICC chief prosecutor Bensouda will decide whether there is a reasonable basis to investigate borsonaro.
Since taking office, borsonaro has withdrawn a number of Amazon environmental protection policies, which pose a major threat to the rainforest and the indigenous people. In addition to cutting down a large number of trees and damaging the ecological environment, borsonaro has also cut the budget of environmental crime law enforcement departments, failing to provide the best protection for the rainforest. According to the report, borsonaro’s policies have led to the forced relocation of many indigenous people, 2 In 019, the amount of land invaded by indigenous people increased by 135%. Last year, at least 18 people died in land conflicts.
Aboriginal people say that as president, borsonaro should protect all communities, but he goes against the trend and makes more and more people agree that he can destroy Rainforest Ecology and persecute Aboriginal people. Aboriginal lawyer Burton says borsonaro’s behavior has caused serious and permanent harm to the environment and Aboriginal people, and he is confident to charge him with ecological genocide. ● comprehensive report
