Indigenous peoples in Brazil have lost their patience. Promised more land decades ago, they have recently begun forcing the issue by occupying farms and ranches.

It is their land, stolen from them.

You say you want a revolution
Well, you know
We all want to change the world
You tell me that it's evolution
Well, you know
We all want to change the world
But when you talk about destruction
Don't you know that you can count me out
Don't you know it's gonna be all right
all right, all right

This is a great article what courage to stand against the Government with such outnumbered odds against them.

We should supply them with arms instead of supplying the middle eastern terrorist.

Sadly noted, for the reality. If the government really wants these tribes off the land it will come in with weapons blazing. Where will that leave survivors...if there are any??

Ah, for the life of the native people!

Then the greedy demons invaded.

Good on them!

They aren't just rolling over and dying, they're fighting back!

With Brasil in the eye of the world

Sorry about, the post before, cat on the keyboard.

With Brazil in the eye of the world because of the international sport manifestations there, this is the right time to get some of this attention too. And it'll prevent the government to go all out against them.
I hope they indigenous people succeed in the land that is rightfully theirs.
