Maori TV exposes shameful treatment of Guarani Kaiowa people

by Catherine Delahunty

Last night on “Native Affairs” there was a compelling story about the Guarani Kaiowa people of Brazil who have been violently displaced by the ethanol and soy bean farmers growing crops for biofuels on indigenous land.

Maori Television sent their own film crew to Brazil to tell the story of these abused people some of whom have been living on the side of the road next to their stolen lands for 14 years.

John Key was recently in Brazil on a trade mission, I wonder if such issues were discussed?

Tragic as this story is I am very grateful that Māori Television are proactive, globally aware and using their resources to tell the important stories that we all need to see and hear.
