Indigenous people were the main victims of conflicts in the rural region in 2022

Almost 40% of people killed in rural conflicts in 2022 were indigenous, according to the Pastoral Land Commission (CPT) in a report released on Monday (17). The year was marked by a significant increase in violence against individuals resulting from conflicts in rural areas. In all, 553 incidents were recorded, resulting in the deaths of 1,065 people, 50% more than in 2021 (368 incidents with 819 victims). Traditional peoples are the main victims in this scenario, which includes murders, assassination attempts, threats, assaults, torture and imprisonment.

In 2022, 38% of the 47 people killed in rural areas were indigenous people, totaling 18 cases. Next came landless workers (9), environmentalists (3), settlers (3), and wage workers (3). In addition, the deaths of indigenous rights activist Bruno Pereira and journalist Dom Phillips in Vale do Javari, Amazonas state, were added to the critical scenario of victims of rural conflicts in 2022. The number of murders resulting from rural conflicts last year represented an increase of 30.55% compared to 2021 (36 deaths) and 123% compared to the data recorded in 2020 (21 deaths).
