Paraguay: Further information: Last step for Indigenous land claim

, Index number: AMR 45/008/2014

On 21 May the plenary of the Paraguayan Lower Chamber (Cámara de Diputados) passed legislation to return 14,404 hectares of traditional land to the Sawhoyamaxa Indigenous community. This is major victory for the community, who have been fighting for their land for over 20 years. The law now has to be enacted (promulgada) by the President of Paraguay.
