Paraguay: 'We're only asking for what is ours': Indigenous peoples in Paraguay -
The Yakye Axa and Sawhoyamaxa belong to the Enxet ethnic group of Indigenous Peoples. For years they have been forced to live in temporary homes because their traditional lands are in the hands of private owners. Both Indigenous communities are determined to return to their lands and to once again become self-sufficient. In this document Amnesty International calls on the Paraguayan authorities to ensure that, until these traditional lands are returned, steps are taken to ensure the Indigenous communities’ survival, in particular in the provision of food, medical care, clean water and education.
