Stop the #Christmasevictions

CESE, the Pastoral Land Commission (Comissão Pastoral da Terra) and the Ecumenical Forum Brazil (Fórum Ecumênico Brasil) invite you to participate actively of the Campaign ##Christmasevictions (#DespejosDeNatal).

The aim of the Campaign is to mobilize Brazilian civil society and the international community to sensitize and pressure public authorities of the state of Pará (north of Brazil) to suspend the eviction of around 300 families (and around 150 children) from Camp Hugo Chávez, who already have the date to happen: on December 13, on the eve of Christmas!

Have you ever thought about having a day and an hour to force you leaving your home? With less than one month until Christmas, when the birth of baby Jesus is celebrated; lights are shining brightly and decorate coloured trees, bringing the whole family together in a cosy home. But the 300 families of the Hugo Chávez Camp (Pará), including 150 boys and girls, will be uprooted from their houses because of an eviction order and thrown on a roadside, without homes, food or access to school.

Just at the Camp Hugo Chávez, in the region of Marabá, since the end of October 2017, around 8,000 men, women and children live with this sad expectation every day. They will be evicted from their homes, with destroyed plantations, schools coming down, as well it will be over their dreams of having a place to live. The eviction injunctions were issued by the Agrarian Jurisdiction of Pará and by the Court of Justice of Pará. In order to evict these families, the Government of the State of Pará has ordered around 115 police officers from the Military Police to remain in the region indefinitely to comply with injunctions on 20 farms located in the municipalities near Marabá.
