Native Indians are protesting a proposed constitutional amendment in Brazil that would let lawmakers participate in the demarcation of territories because they believe the proposal would allow agribusiness and large mining and energy companies to encroach on their lands.

According to the organizers, the protest is part of the National Indigenous Mobilization, with events in various parts of Brazil, to defend the territorial rights of the indigenous population against the government, agribusiness and large mining and energy companies.
