Human Rights Advocacy Collective (CADHu) & ARNS Commission, Informative Note to the Prosecutor International Criminal Court pursuant to Article 15 of the Rome Statute requesting a Preliminary Examination into Incitement to Genocide and Widespread Systematic Attacks Against Indigenous Peoples by President Jair Messias Bolsonaro in Brazil (Nov. 2019),

This Informative Note shows that specific activities undertaken by the Bolsonaro Administration dismantle public policies that seek to protect social and environmental rights as well as environmental oversight structures in Brazil, including indigenous land demarcation procedures. Demonstrating that the government is inciting violence against indigenous peoples as well as social and environmental rights defenders, the Human Rights Advocacy Collective (CADHu) requests the Office of the Prosecutor to investigate crimes against humanity and genocide the organization alleges.
