Fw: Brazil indigenous leader killed

Sat Nov 19 14:37:40 UTC 2011

FYI, from PPGIS (link to BBC story in fwd'd email below):

Nisio Gomes, 59, was part of a Guarani Kaiowa group that returned to their ancestral land at the start of this month after being evicted by ranchers. 

He was killed by a group of around 40 masked gunmen who burst into the camp. 

Brazil's Human Rights Secretary condemned the murder as "part of systematic violence against indigenous people in the region".
