(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]
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
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.
