Indianara Ramires Machado

AJI (Action Association of Young Indians of Dourados)
Guarani Kaiowa indigenous youth representative
Dourados, Mato Grosso do Sul/Brasil
Lives in the indigenous land of Dourados in Mato Grosso do Sul Brazil, graduated in nursing from the State University of Mato Grosso do Sul, since 12 years participates in the movement of indigenous youth of Mato Grosso do Sul. She is vice president of AJI - Young Indigenous Youth Action Association of Dourados, currently a master student at the University of São Paulo School of Medicine. I affirm that the lack of applicability of free, prior and informed consultations brings great harm to our population, in our case, the abusive use of pesticides applied in the region, the contamination of springs and damming of rivers that pass within the reserves and indigenous villages, the leasing of indigenous lands by non-Indians left them unable to survive. In Geneva she will be talking especially about the impact on children and young people born in territories "devastated" by mining, agribusiness and mining.
