There are many different proposals being discussed in the National Congress of Brazil that directly assail Indigenous rights, among them constitutional amendment 215/00. This amendment–otherwise known as PEC 215– threatens indigenous territorial boundaries across Brazil because it would give Congress exclusive authority to decide where the boundaries of all indigenous lands lie, including any lands previously demarcated and ratified by the Executive Branch of the government.

That takes time, expertise and resources - and we're up against a constant tide of misinformation and distorted coverage. By supporting IC you're empowering the kind of journalism we need, at the moment we need it most.
