SOCIAL ACTION REPORT - “THE DEFENSORY GOES WHERE THE POOR PEOPLE ARE” PROJECT - Quilombola Community Santa Justina / Santa Izabel - Mangaratiba / RJ

October 28th, 2018

Action taken on 20 October 2018.

Continuing the actions in the core of the project “Defensoria goes where the Poor People are”, we held on 20 October 2018, an action in the municipality of Mangaratiba, in the quilombola community Santa Justina / Santa Izabel.

The initial idea would be to hold the First Meeting of the Collective of Quilombola Communities of Sul Fluminense and Costa Verde. However, bad weather made it impossible for the event to take place in this way, as it was not possible for the presence of most communities. In view of this, the DPU offered the public hearing space “The People's Defender”, to be held on 07 / 12 / 2018, at the DPU headquarters in Volta Redonda, for the analysis of the objectives and strategies, creation of the WG / Collective , date calendar definition for the year 2019.

Faced with the absence of a quorum, it was decided to hold a conversation with members of the local community (Santa Izabel / Santa Justina), representative of the Alto da Serra community, representative of INCRA, municipal public agents, among other guests. . As a referral of this event: the local community will send to the members of the other communities of the collective the proposal of the DPU about the possibility of discussion of the issues related to the Collective / WG at the public hearing scheduled for 07 / 12; The DPU contacted the UFF (Anthropology) to request assistance for the elaboration of the RTID being prepared by INCRA; INCRA, considering the facts that learned about that event decided to hold a new meeting to address the problems faced by the local community due to the conduct attributed, in theory, to the alleged owners of the property, with the participation of DPU, DPERJ, MPF, Palmares Foundation, EcoInvest, among others.
