Stock Photo - 17 August 2020, Brazil, Novo Progresso: Members of the Kayapó indigenous people are blocking the BR-163 motorway and preventing vehicles from passing through. They are holding a banner saying ""Defense of the Amazon"". Without listening to the indigenous people, there will be no concessions and no ferrogrão'. They are demonstrating against poor health care in the fight against corona virus in indigenous settlements. But the protest is also directed, among other things, at the lack of updating of a basic environmental plan and the government's unwillingness to talk about the concession procedures for a private initiative for the BR-163 motorway and the planning for Ferrogrão, a project to build a rail link between the states of Mato Grosso and Pará, which will run less than 50 kilometres from the Kayapós areas.
