Tamanho: 6.99 MB  |  Formato: PDF

The report aims to describe the evolution of illegal mining in the Yanomami Indigenous Territory (TIY) in 2021. This is the worst moment of invasion since the TIY was demarcated and ratified thirty years ago. Describes how the presence of mining in the TIY is the cause of systematic human rights violations in the communities that live there. In addition to deforestation and the destruction of water bodies, the illegal extraction of gold (and cassiterite) in Yanomami territory has caused an explosion in cases of malaria and other infectious and contagious diseases, with serious consequences for the families' health and economy, and a frightening increase in violence against indigenous people.
