Modern Day Interlude from a Previous LIfe
BBC NEWS: "Police in Brazil have revealed plans to evict 3,000 Indians from farms they are occupying in the south of the country.
A team of 600 officers will clear the area but the police have not said when they will move in as tension between the Indians and farmers rises.
The Indians, who come from the Guarani and Caiua tribes, began invading the farms shortly before Christmas.
They have refused to go quietly and their leaders have promised to fight to the death in defending the farms.
Last week a federal judge sided with the farmers and gave the indigenous people three days to leave the land.
The Indians are camped out at 14 farms in the state of Matto Grosso do Sul, near Brazil's border with Paraguay.
They say the land ancestrally belongs to them." And of course it does.
