Indigenous Brazilian View of Their New President

Indigenous people of the Inyrubé in Brazil (whom the Portuguese called the Karajá) visited a rainforest in Argyll, Scotland during the COP26 climate conference in Glasgow. Now a film about their trip has been shown at the Glasgow Short Film Festival, an opportunity to ask the protagonist, Narubia Werreria what she thought of the new president, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, who came into office in January 2023. She says he has stopped a genocide which she claims was imminent under the previous president, Jair Bolsonaro. (An Là, BBC ALBA, 26/3/23)
