(en) cabn libertar faca: Slaughter of peasants in Pau D'arco is a state crime. We demand the immediate resumption of agrarian reform By ANA (pt) [machine translation]

Date Fri, 2 Jun 2017 00:17:53 +0300

The Cabana Anarchist Federation has publicly demonstrated its repudiation and outrage at the action of the Military Police of the State of Pará, which resulted in the massacre of ten peasants and 14 shot in the Municipality of Pau D'árco in the South of the State. Under the plea of reinstatement of tenure and enforcement of prison terms at Fazenda Santa Lúcia, PM and civilian police promoted another blood-stained slaughter in this northern portion of Brazil. ---- The peasants were camped outside the farm and claim part of this latifundio that was shouted by the farmer known in the region as Norato Barbicha, who had already died. Relatives of the farmer, especially the widow, remain on the land grilada. The workers started this fight since May 18, 2015 claiming part of the land for agrarian reform purposes. Negotiations had already been made. And the agreement had not been effected by disagreement of the supposed owners with respect to the value of the indemnification paid by the INCRA.

The large media serving the interests of the latifundio and the state call the "confrontation" what happened. Showing hunting rifles to justify violent action. However, information from surviving peasants, including the same family that lost seven of its members in the slaughter, said there was no resistance and that the police arrived at the camp already firing. The action was coordinated by the DECA - Redenção Agrarian Conflict Office.

This case is one more that is added to the scale of violence promoted by the latifundio in Pará. In the last ten days of April (month of struggle for the peoples of the Latin American countryside) were seven murders. The comrades Kátia Martins in the January 1 settlement in Castanhal and Etevaldo Costa (with torture) in Eldorado do Carajás were the cases highlighted in April. In the last 10 years the state of Pará has been leading the ranking of violence in the Brazilian countryside with the impressive mark of 103 murders during this period.

The increase in violence in the Pará countryside occurs in a context where agrarian reform has stagnated. You are completely paralyzed. The last governments of the PT (Dilma Roussef) and the PMDB (Michel Temer) took charge of withdrawing 600 million reais from this policy. Immobilizing it completely. The cut of funds and collusion of the Government of the State of Pará, Simão Jatene, of the PSDB increase this picture of murders and criminalization in the field.

We at FACA reaffirm our solidarity and struggle with peasants from Pará. We demand the resumption of the agrarian reform process with expropriation of the latifundio without compensation to the farmers. We demand the conviction of the main culprit for more this slaughter in the field: Simão Robson Jatene, Governor of Pará.

To our dead no minute of silence.

A lifetime of fighting.

Agrarian Reform Now.
