'Guardian of the forest' killed in Amazon ambush laid to loggers

Illegal loggers kill Amazon indigenous warrior who guarded forest

Brazil says indigenous forest guard killed in Amazon ambush

Indigenous leader Paulo Paulino Guajajara drinks water from a tree branch at a makeshift camp on Arariboia indigenous land near the city of Amarante, Maranhao state, Brazil, Sept. 10, 2019. The tribesmen are members of an indigenous forest guard called Guardians of the Forest, which formed in 2012 to ward off logging gangs pillaging their rare, hardwood-rich reserve.

Brazil's populist c has drawn intense domestic and worldwide criticism for failing to protect the Guardians' territory in the eastern Amazon region.

The neighborhood said the dazzling-fly president's 'assault on the nation's environmental companies is inserting the rainforest and the of us who are residing there at principal higher risk'.

Brazil's justice minister, Sérgio Moro, promised a thorough investigation into the death of Mr. Guajajara by the federal police in the country. "We will spare no effort to bring those responsible for this serious crime to justice", he tweeted.

The Indigenous Missionary Council had warned in a report published on September 24 thatthat the number of invasions of indigenous lands by loggers and minersand land hoarders were increasing. His colleague, Tainaky Tenetehar, was shot in the back and arm but escaped.

Another guard was wounded in the attack, while one of the illegal loggers involved in the ambush also was killed.

Paulo Paulino Guajajara, or Lobo (which means "wolf" in Portuguese), was hunting inside the Arariboia reservation when loggers opened fire and shot him in the neck.

"The Bolsonaro government has indigenous blood on its hands", APIB, which represents numerous country's 900,000 native people, said in a statement on Saturday. These statements reinforce the anti-indigenous position of the current government and incite illegal action by those who seek to invade and exploit the territories already demarcated. "The increase in violence in indigenous territories is a direct result of his hateful speeches and steps taken against our people".
