Brazilian bishops condemn violence against Guarani

Catholic World News - September 24, 2010

In 1986, The Mission-- a film that won an Academy Award and later received Vatican recognition-- publicized the story of the suppression of the Jesuit missions to the Guarani in South America.

On September 22, the Brazilian bishops condemned violence and “brutal intimidation” against two Guarani communities. The Guarani engaged in a land dispute with ranch owners, who have reportedly hired 80 gunmen and are denying the Guarani access to food and water in an attempt to force them off the disputed land.
