Brazil - Further update to CERD regarding the continued need for urgent action with relation to the indigenous lands of Raposa Serra do Sol

Further to the submission of July 2009, (see related documents) this update reports that indigenous peoples' rights in Brazil are being seriously threatened. In addition, the Brazilian government has still failed to provide the full accounting of the status of the violent attacks against the indigenous peoples of Raposa, as requested by CERD.Submission by Conselho Indígena de Roraima, Rainforest Foundation US, and Forest Peoples Programme
