II Cerrado Network Territories Workshop will be attended by representatives of traditional Biome peoples and communities who will have direct dialogue with the government and the Federal Public Prosecution Service
Continuing the process of debate on the territorial rights of traditional peoples and communities started last year, on May 8th and 9th, the Cerrado Network will gather representatives of indigenous, quilombolas, babassu coconut breakers, gerizeiros, raizeiras, extratvisitas, among other traditional peoples of the Biome, in Brasilia (DF), for direct dialogue with the government and the Federal Public Prosecution Service to debate perspectives and outline joint strategies for the coming years.
If in 2018 the dialogues have given birth to new ways of securing these territories, now strategies will be thought and mapped against the conjuncture already established by the current federal management.
The Cerrado, besides being currently the most threatened biome in Brazil, according to data from the Campo 2018 Conflict Book of the Pastoral Land Commission, was the region that suffered most from the expulsion of families from the camp. The registered increase from 2017 to 2018 was more than 14 thousand percent.
