Prosecutor Marco Antonio Delfino de
Almeida argues that the Guyraroka
community must be compensated for
moral and material damages.

Too right!
They got evicted from their own damn home, their own damn land. I hope they not only win but also set an example for other tribes facing this kind of barbaric cruelty.

It is bad enough that corporate & governmental entities dictate OUR lives, tribes should not be ridiculed off their own, THEIR OWN land only for it to most likely be destroyed along with the wildlife these people love and respect.. for money..

Good post. And giving them money could be the final nail in the coffin of their traditional lifestyle...what would they do with mere money ? It's no compensation for the loss of a way of life...?

That's really a slap in the face and an official welcoming to the dark side!

It's akin to decimating an existing religion and repaying the affected people's with bibles.

Compensation? Yes!

In the form of money? No!

Agree whole heartedly with the posters above me although they won't definitely become substance dependant.

I'm Brasilian, let me try to put you guys aware of the situation:
This specific tribe, has been banned from their homeland decades ago. They are now nothing but a shadow of what they once were. It was the most numbered tribe in the whole country, with a population estimated in 10 millions. They now preserve their culture(kind of), and yes they all became alcoholic addicted and involved in drug traffic with bolivians and colombian cartels. Will money solve their problem? Definite NO! It will only agravate the problem...
