Native Brazilians of the Terena tribe cover their faces with mud at Sao Pedro do Paratudal ranch which belongs to Pedro Paulo Pedrossian, son of former Mato Grosso do Sul Governor Pedro Pedrossian, as they occupy the 600-hectare (1,483-acre) property on land that was declared Indian reserve by the federal government in 2007, in Miranda near the border with Paraguay and Bolivia, October 4, 2013. According to the Terena Indians, this is the 68th property they have taken over from ranchers who have titles to the land in spite of it being Indian territory, in the ongoing land conflict. The National Indigenous Mobilization is being held from September 30 to October 5 in various parts of Brazil to defend the territorial rights of the indigenous population against the government, agribusiness, large mining and energy companies.
