Many of Brazil's indigenous peoples are feeling threatened that their land rights currently guaranteed by the constitution are at risk. In response, indigenous peoples and supporters protested across Brazil Wednesday (October 2) in an effort to keep their rights in tact. The object of the demonstrations were in part to protest against what indigenous groups see as an attack on their territorial rights by special interest groups lobbying congress on behalf of mining and energy companies.
