Dalcidio Jurandir Camp

Dalcídio Jurandir Camp


With a reintegration of possession hearing scheduled for 12 June, more than 200 families that live in the Dalcídio Jurandir camp in Eldorado do Carajás remain at risk of eviction. The Santa Barbara group, the ones demanding the reintegration of possession, counts with a history of denounces against them for aggressions, poison pulverisations and attempted killings of human rights defenders and rural workers, as well as accusations of money laundry, tax evasion and conspiracy. Additionally, the documents of acquisition and title remain judicially disputed. The camp has been integrated since 2008 to Eldorado dos Carajás, and has been supplying their produce to the city and neighbouring municipalities. The camp also strengthens local economy with the production and commerce of manioc flour, fish, more than 45 kinds of fruits, vegetables, legumes, and cattle in fairs and markets of nearby towns.

The challenges and threats faced by human rights defenders in Brazil remain very high, particularly for those working on issues of land, environment, indigenous peoples, LGBTi rights, corruption and impunity. Many HRDs have experienced death threats, physical attacks, arbitrary arrests and lawsuits. The high number of killings is of particular concern and takes place against a background of widespread impunity.
