‘Garimpeiros’ (illegal gold prospectors) set fire to the Basic Indigenous Health Unit (UBSI) of Homoxi, in the Yanomami Indigenous Land in Roraima, this Tuesday.

The complaint was made by the Urihi Yanomami Association, in a note released on social networks.

Urihi said it believes that the action is a way of retaliating against the operation carried out by the Federal Police (PF) and Ibama (Brazilian Institute for the Environment and Renewable Resources) on Monday, in the region.

Since September 2021, the UBSI health center has been closed, as health professionals are being threatened by miners in the region. According to Urihi, 700 Yanomami are without assistance. In March of this year, a video sent to Folha shows the indigenous people’s request for the return of health in the locality.
