Degut a les amenaces que està rebent el Bisbe emèrit Pere Casaldàliga de Sâo Félix d’Araguaia (Brasil), pel seu posicionament a favor del retorn de les terres indígenes Marâiwatsédé als Xavantes.

I degut al clima de violència creixent a la zona, al acostar-se les dates d’aquest més de desembre en que, invasors que van ocupar les terres seran desallotjats per fi per donar compliment a l’ordre judicial.

El Bisbe Pere ha estat aconsellat per autoritats i amistats i en decisió comunitària amb l’Equip Pastoral a sortir de Sâo Félix d’Araguaia per uns dies, per donar compliment al mandat de salvaguardar la seva vida, degut a les repetides amenaces que està rebent.

Fa dos dies que el Bisbe Pere ha sortit de la regió.
Fem aquesta denuncia a la societat, als Moviments solidaris i a la Comunitat Internacional perquè vetlli i sigui reconegut internacionalment el Dret Indígena a la seva terra, i es salvaguardi i es supervisi el retorn a la terra Xavante.
Ens sentim plenament identificats amb la defensa que des de sempre ha fet el Bisbe Pere i la Prelazia de Sâo Félix de la "causa indígena", i apostem per l’acció pacifica de la justícia en aquesta causa local que ens afecta globalment.
