Petition asks the Federal Supreme Court (STF) to support the quilombolas’ constitutional right to land

In August, the future of millions of quilombolas will be decided in the Federal Supreme Court (STF).
In 2004, the Democratic Party (DEM) filed a Direct Action of Unconstitutionality (ADI) in the STF, questioning decree 4887/2003 which regulates quilombo land titles. The trial has been in progress since 2012 and will resume on 16th August.

All quilombo titles in the country can be cancelled. The future of these communities is under threat. New titles will not be possible without this decree. More than 6,000 communities are still waiting for their rights to be recognized.

The quilombola communities are part of our history, our present and our future.
Sign the petition and tell the STF that you do not accept the Democratic Party’s action! Join the quilombolas’ struggle for their constitutional right to land.

Brazil is quilombola! No to less quilombos!
