  • Brazil tribes declare war on illegal loggers in Amazon

    first_imgARARIBOIA INDIGENOUS LAND, Brazil – A beat-up sign on the edge of this Amazon reserve warns strangers not to enter. For years, loggers ignored it and barreled straight into the protected indigenous territory, cutting tracks ever deeper into the diminishing forest.But on a recent day, visitors approaching Jucaral village, just inside the reserve, encountered an improvised checkpoint operated by a militia called the Guardians. Wearing disheveled uniforms and face paint, members of the 48-man militia sauntered out, shotguns in hand, to check every arriving vehicle.The Guardians are from one of two indigenous groups on this eastern fringe of the Amazon that have taken radical action to reduce illegal logging. They have tied up loggers, torched their trucks and tractors, and kicked them off the reserves.As a result, such logging has sharply declined in these territories. But the indigenous groups have faced reprisal attacks and death threats for their actions, raising fears of more violence in an area known for its lawlessness.The clashes highlight the continuing grave threat to the Amazon, the world’s biggest remaining rain forest, which plays a crucial role in maintaining the world’s climate and biodiversity. From 2005 to 2012, deforestation plunged in Brazil, as the government increased its conservation efforts and cracked down on illegal loggers. But since then, the numbers have begun to creep up again. In 2014 alone, almost 2,000 square miles of Amazon rain forest were cleared by farmers, loggers and others.Indigenous groups play an important role in preserving Brazil’s Amazon rain forest; their reserves make up roughly one-fifth of its area. Silvio da Silva, a village chief from Arariboia and an employee of the Brazilian government’s indigenous agency, said that a year ago as many as 130 logging trucks left the southern end of this reserve a day. Thanks to the Guardians, that has fallen to around 10 to 15 trucks a day.In a rare visit to the reserves permitted by the indigenous tribes, Washington Post journalists found that many residents support the militias. But others are uneasy about relying on informal armed groups to resolve a problem that should fall to the Brazilian government.“I am very scared of a serious incident,” said Nonato Sales, 65, a local cattle farmer.The Guardians formed in 2012 “to minimize the critical situation of illegal deforestation” on this rain-forest reserve, said Olimpio Iwyramu Guajajara, 42, the group’s general coordinator.The militia contains men from the Guajajara, an indigenous tribe. A smaller Guardians militia operates in the nearby Caru reserve, also in the northeastern state of Maranhão. In 2013, a second group of indigenous people, the Ka’apor, began using similar tactics on their reserve, Alto Turiacu, 150 miles away. Members of the Ka’apor tribe have been expelling loggers from their Alto Turiacu reserve, action that has led to threats and violence. Bonnie Jo Mount | Washington PostIndigenous groups like those in Arariboia have faced a growing threat to their livelihoods as loggers have pressed into their territories, where most of the remaining hardwood in this part of the Amazon is concentrated.The threat has been even worse for the Awá people, hunter-gatherers who roam through remote areas of the 1,600-square-mile reserve. The loggers were “expelling the isolated Indians, finishing the food supplies that sustained them, all the hunting, fruits and fish,” Iwyramu said. Brazil is home to more isolated or “non-contacted” indigenous groups than anywhere else in the world, around 80, according to Survival International, a British-based group that champions the rights of tribal peoples.President Dilma Rousseff recently promised to end illegal logging in the Amazon by 2030. A report last year by the World Resources Institute, a nonprofit group based in Washington, concluded that indigenous communities were highly effective at conserving their own forests. “They say the forest is their life,” said Sarah Shenker, who works at Survival.Yet the government’s agency for indigenous affairs, the National Indian Foundation, or FUNAI, has a budget this year of just $159 million to protect 900,000 indigenous people. With such limited resources of its own, the agency has decided to provide support to the Guardians in Arariboia, including ammunition, boots and fuel for their motorbikes and all-terrain vehicles.The armed groups are using aggressive tactics to protect their land.A few weeks ago, a team of Guardians surrounded some loggers in their hammocks in the Arariboia reserve. “We tied them all up,” said Fernando Marciano Guajajara, 30, one of the Guardians. The militiamen went on to burn the loggers’ vehicles.“They were very angry,” he said. A logging truck moves through the Arariboia reserve. Bonnie Jo Mount | Washington PostConflict builds as loggers fight backThe reaction to the raids has been fierce. Indigenous leaders have received death threats, Iwyramu said. The Ka’apor people have especially suffered: In April, Eusébio Ka’apor was shot and killed just outside the Alto Turiacu reserve. “He was one of the oldest and best-known leaders,” said a 28-year-old member of a Ka’apor leadership council, speaking on the condition of anonymity because of security concerns. Another Ka’apor leader narrowly avoided an ambush attempt in July, and three other members of the tribe were shot and wounded in January 2014.The close relationship between the government and the Guardians is not replicated on the Alto Turiacu reserve. There, local leaders said they had not had any support from the indigenous agency, which they distrust.Antonio de Oliveira, 48, a federal police officer on assignment to the agency, has been working with the Guardians in Arariboia for 19 months. Normally, he and police officers from an environmental unit accompany the Guardians on their missions. He has repeatedly told the men that their weapons are for self-defense.But during one mission, Oliveira said, he had to stand in front of a captured logger to deter a Guardian who was threatening to kill the man. The Guardian has since left the troop. “We don’t want any more of him,” Oliveira said. Antonio de Oliveira, a federal police officer on assignment with the National Indian Foundation, shows a tree that was cut by loggers. Bonnie Jo Mount | The Washington PostIn Arariboia, many people in the indigenous villages of mud-brick houses said they supported the Guardians. But some alleged that the militia members had seized possessions from indigenous people they believed were selling wood. The indigenous communities are legally allowed to cut down some trees but can’t do commercial logging.Lourenzo Guajajara, 60, chief of Bom Jardim village, complained that the Guardians provoked powerful loggers. “It is bringing problems to us,” he said, citing villagers’ fears of reprisal attacks.In the past, many towns have accepted money to let logging vehicles pass into their lands. The Guardians have persuaded most to stop. But one village, Cigana, continues to charge $26 a truck to let them rumble through it and over a tumbledown bridge.“In our village, there is no work,” said Cigana’s chief, Joacyr Muni Guajajara, 45. “We need it.”The illegal logging in Arariboia has been reduced but continues. One recent afternoon, a battered truck with no license plates lurched down a dirt path that led out of the reserve, laden with logs. Seven more passed nearby after the sun had set.Oliveira said many trucks took a looping route to Buriticupu, a town between the reserves where dozens of sawmills operate. “In terms of environmental crime in Brazil, crime pays,” he said. “The state is not fulfilling its role.”Logging has also declined in the Alto Turiacu reserve, a spokesman for the leadership council said. Residents in the town of Centro do Guilherme, near the reserve, said the flow of logging trucks down the main street had almost ceased in recent months.There are currently three indigenous groups of 30 people each, armed with bows and arrows and shotguns, doing monitoring and surveillance work of possible illegal logging in Alto Turiacu, a spokesman for the leadership council said. In August, the groups carried out two operations in which they torched tractors and trucks belonging to loggers, the spokesman said.But community leaders are also pursuing other strategies to protect their 2,406-square-mile reserve. They have founded villages like Jaxipuxirenda, a compound of huts, at strategic points to keep loggers out.Two years ago, the area on the edge of the reserve shuddered to the buzz of chain saws, and dozens of trucks a day ferried logs away. But on a recent day, the only sound came from children scampering down a path into the forest.One man said he had been scared to move to the village. “It was difficult. Just a few people,” he said, speaking on the condition of anonymity for fear of reprisals. But the loggers had left, and now it was home. “It’s a good place,” he said. “It’s very beautiful.” Facebook Comments Related posts:Deforestation in Brazil’s Amazon surges 450 percent, says environmental group China throws Brazil multi-billion dollar lifeline for jets, oil Lula’s bridge to nowhere hints at global reach of Brazil graft To conserve the Amazon, the forest must become an economic ‘asset’last_img read more

raise several serious issues including the credibility of the institution of commissions of inquirytake stock of the working of such commissionsexamine what ails themand seek solutions to salvage the situation Experience and hindsight render one bold to be blunt and speak out The Commissions of Inquiry Act provides that a state or Central government may set up one to inquire into a matter of definite public importance A cynical view has gained ground that commissions of inquiry are established merely to deflect the popular mood of the public and stave off inconvenient questions in the legislature and are not really intended to fathom the facts leading to a matter of moment The saga of most of the commissions beforeduring and after they were set upadds grist to the cynical mill A commission of inquiry can be headed by any person in whom the government has confidence The coefficient of confidence commanded by judges being highby default such commissions are headed by a judgesitting or retired The choice of the presiding judge often gets embroiled in political quagmire with the government jockeying to find the least unsuitable judge for the job In the case of a sitting judgethe choice is usually made by the concerned chief justiceleaving little scope for the government to manoeuvre and manipulateunless the chief justice is pliable Pliability of the presiding officer has greater probability in the case of a retired judgethough honourable exceptions are not unknown Even after setting up a commission and appointing a judge to head itgovernments do everything possible to impede its work To begin withno proper place is made available for holding the proceedings Requisite staff and other infrastructure are denied or indefinitely delayed Unless the presiding officer has the tenacity of an English pit-bulland the epidermis of a pachydermno headway can be made for months on end Thenthere starts the mindgame of conjuring up all manners of obstacles in its smooth functioning Relevant documents are not produced by officers on vague and often frivolous pleas of state privilegematerial witnesses are not produced One is amazed at the manner in which the statewhich solemnly set up the commissionfinds ways and means to retard its work To add to the difficultyevery conceivable political party utilises the opportunity to extract maximum political mileage Busybodies suddenly wake up and rush forward to heap unsolicited adviceeven if well meantand burden the record of the commission with tonnes of material of least relevance Most are represented by lawyers who leave no stone unturned to milk the occasion to garner fame and riches Forensic pleasmostly frivolousare flung at the judge; cross-examination is conducted ad nauseam; adjournments are frequently sought on the convenience of counselillness of witnesses and myriad other excusesold and new The unrealistic timeframe given by the government to complete the inquiry soon ends and many extensions are sought and given liberally by the government Fading public memory helps in blotting out the very momentous reason for which the commission was set up Finallywhen the lionhearted do produce a reportit is placed on the floor of the House on the last day of the session with an Action Taken Report with insufficient copies printed and not distributed rendering impossible any meaningful debate on its contents Timetalent and public funds are wasted in each such exercise Cynics sniggerwags smileand the debate about the futility of the exercise continues There needs to be a change in mindset A commission of inquiry is not a substitute for a debate on the floor of the legislature on any important public issue The attempt of governments to deflect public opinion and questions in the legislature by raising the bogus plea of the issue being sub-judice before the commission needs to be deprecated Nothing prevents the government from entrusting such inquiries to bureaucratsbut their credibility today is very low Ifwilly-nillya judge has to be appointedthe choice of such appointment must always lie with the chief justice whopresumablydoes not toe the line of the government Having appointed the commission in all seriousnessthe government must treat it with the same sense of urgency as an agency doing firefighting All material sought must be made immediately available without any reservationdeferring to his discretion in the matter of privilege Considering the end result to be achievedthe commission must restrict representation before it only to such persons as it thinks are absolutely necessary to unravel and discern the truth Short shrift must be given to publicity hunters and peddlers of political pedagoguery Cross-examination should be pruned to the irreducible minimum commensurate with the demands of natural justice The judge must at all times be in the driving seat of proceedings and determine their speed and direction He must brook neither interference nor interruptionusing fully the powers under the act to summon and enforce attendance of all persons deemed necessaryhowever high and mighty they be It is time to ensure that judicial time and talent do not go waste by amending the act to make the findings of a commission of inquiry binding on the government that set it up Ifat allthe government is seriousit should declare at the time of setting up the commission that it would accept the report and act upon it The legislation should be amended and brought on line with the Truth Commission in South Africa and similar laws in other countrieswhich make the findings of the commission binding on the government The power to commit for contempt must be invested in the commission to prevent it from being reduced to a joke by the powerful Establishing of a commission of inquiry must be an honest effort to discover what went wrong with a view to remedy the situation and learn lessons to avoid similar events in the future The facts brought to light must result in appropriate action against persons in a court of law and immediate implementation of administrative measures to rectify the lapses highlighted
