Indigenous groups protest bill that would allow mining on their land in Brazil

Indigenous communities protest in the capital Brasilia a bill proposed by far-right President Jair Bolsonaro's government that would allow commercial mining on their land. "We know that once mining is allowed, it brings not only mining, it brings illegal mining, prostitution, all the problems they cause in our territory. We are here to reject that," says a Kumaruara indigenous leader, as demonstrators also call for the demarcation of their territories.
