Critical and Urgent
- Bill 191/2020, which would open indigenous lands to mining, oil and gas extraction, electricity generation, and agriculture needs to be closely monitored and advocacy efforts directed towards ensuring that the Bill, in its current format, must not pass in Congress.
- Funai must immediately recognize indigenous territories (even those under an appeals process) in formal land registries.
- Mining permits must be adapted to include volumes of gold that could be viably extracted from any given piece of land, in order to weaken attempts to wash illegal gold continuously with the same mining permits.
- BAPES as well as Funai health posts must be reintroduced to the regions at once, critically during Covid-19.
