Mourning in the struggling community of Engenho Roncadorzinho

Last October we shared a video testimony in the framework of the forum of struggles "Engenho Roncadorzinoh, 40 years of struggle! (link: An attack took place in the village on the night of 10 February 2022, which resulted in the death of a 9 year old child, son of one of the main leaders of the community and president of the association of family farmers in the region. He himself was injured but survived. The community has been in existence for 40 years and is home to around 400 residents, including 150 children. In recent years, the community has suffered several threats and violence from a private company, with the destruction of crops and contamination of water sources. The aim is to pressure the families to leave the area and free up the land to raise livestock. We invite you to share and disseminate this information to put pressure on the authorities to investigate and punish those responsible for this crime. You can find CONTAG's press release here:
