Petition - Brazil: Guarani Kaiowa

The Brazilian National Congress intends to transfer the administrative process for the demarcation of indigenous lands from the executive branch of the goverment to the legislature, replacing techinical criteria and administrative skills with a political decision in order to derail the demarcations.  This project is primarily an attack on the role of indigenous peoples in the Brazilian constitutional process.  It is imperative that the national Congress fulfill its obligations to consult with indigenous peopulations for all legislative proposals related tothema nd their way of life.  Indigenous people cannot wait any longer.
