On 26 September the Subcommittee on Human Rights will hold a hearing on Protecting Indigenous Peoples' Rights in Brazil. The hearing will follow up Parliament's call for indigenous peoples' rights to be fully protected, including their land, territories and resources.

The focus will be on the challenges the EU should tackle as a priority, including criminalisation and systematic attacks against indigenous leaders, grabbing and environmental destruction, as well as participation by indigenous peoples in decisions that affect them.

From: 17:45 to 19:00, Room: SPAAK 5B-01
