DESCRIPTIONIndigenous women occupy Brasília and ask for rights.
The 2nd March of Indigenous Women occupied Brasília between the 7th and 10th of September, 2021, to fight for the rights of indigenous populations.
The mobilization brought together 4,000 women from 150 ethnic groups from various states in the country and strengthened support for the "Luta pela Vida" camp, which is trying to stop the "Marco Temporal" - a government law that is being voted on and intends to do away with indigenous lands, in order to favor cattle ranches, gold mines and plantations on industrial scales. In the foreground: Sabrina Hunikuin, from the Hunikuin ethnicity.
