Leonardo DiCaprio posts a photo of Lula and praises the demarcation of indigenous lands: ‘Congratulations to those involved’


Actor and committed to environmental causes, Leonardo DiCaprio celebrated on his Instagram the demarcation of indigenous lands made by President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva (PT). In the post, he even compared the attitude with that of the government of Jair Bolsonaro.

“In a victory for indigenous rights, President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva announced the demarcation of six indigenous lands. This progress comes after the previous government not only paralyzed demarcations, but violated the rights of the country’s indigenous peoples,” he wrote. .

The approved areas are: TI Arara do Rio Amônia, in Acre, TI Kariri-Xocó, in Alagoas, TI Rio dos Índios, in Rio Grande do Sul, TI Tremembé da Barra do Mundaú, in Ceará, TI Avá-Canoeiro, in Goiás , and TI Uneiuxi, in Amazonas. The signatures were signed alongside the Minister of Indigenous Peoples, Sônia Guajajara, at Acampamento Terra Livre, in Brasília.

In the caption, the actor also highlighted other environmental policies of the current government. “The Lula government also signed a decree to establish a committee focused on the protection, recovery, conservation and sustainable use of natural resources in indigenous territories; it restarted the National Council for Indigenous Policy, which allows the equal participation of indigenous peoples in the presentation and monitoring the application of public policies aimed at indigenous peoples; guaranteed more than US$ 2.4 million for the economic development and recovery of indigenous Yanomami communities in the Amazon. Congratulations to all those involved in these fundamental achievements.”
