Brazil Indigenous rights medal to Bolsonaro sparks outrage

TRT World says Brazilian tribal leaders and advocates have criticised the granting of an Indigenous rights award to President Jair Bolsonaro, calling it an “atrocity” that ignores his record on dismantling protections for native people and the environment.

Justice Minister Anderson Torres on Wednesday gave the Medal of Indigenous Merit to his boss, Bolsonaro, in “recognition for relevant services” in the defence of Indigenous communities.

But Indigenous Brazilians and environmental activists said on Thursday it was inappropriate to give such an award to the former army captain, who has questioned the veracity of global heating, has erased environmental protections and has pushed to allow mining and oil exploration on Indigenous reservations.
