Indigenous Guaraní People Occupy São Paulo City Hall

Published April 1, 2019

Guaranís of the of the Jaraguá indigenous land occupied São Paulo City Hall on March 27 with bows and arrows in response to the fascist Bolsonaro regime’s denial of health services in Brazil. The Guarani people are protesting cuts to health services, and said they don’t intend to leave until the government returns the Ministry of Indigenous Health to their communities.

The mayor of São Paulo, Bruno Covas, refused to receive the Guaraní people. The Bolsonaro government has done away with doctors, medicine and health centres in the Indigenous villages of Brazil.

The Guaraní community shouted “murderer” at the fascist Brazilian government, which has ended health services. Thousands of Cuban doctors had previously provided services in Indigenous districts & and quilombola settlements.
