Em 2017, a Declaração da ONU sobre os Direitos dos Povos Indígenas completa 10 anos. Este marco relembra a importância dos povos indígenas na formação e riqueza da sociedade e como eles são ameaçados. No Brasil, no ano de 1500, a população de indígenas era de 8 milhões; hoje, em 2017, eles são cerca de 900 mil.
No Mato Grosso do Sul, centro-oeste do país, a situação territorial é dramática e provoca uma série de abusos de direitos humanos, que afetam principalmente os guarani e kaiowá.
Para contar um pouco sobre a situação dessas populações, o Centro de Informação das Nações Unidas para o Brasil (UNIC Rio) visitou a Reserva Indígena de Dourados e diversas aldeias do estado de Mato Grosso do Sul. Foram mais de mil quilômetros percorridos durante cinco dias para a produção do documentário “Guarani e Kaiowá: Pelo direito de viver no Tekoha”.

FOUR HORSEMEN is an award winning independent feature documentary which lifts the lid on how the world really works.
As we will never return to ‘business as usual’ 23 international thinkers, government advisors and Wall Street money-men break their silence and explain how to establish a moral and just society.
FOUR HORSEMEN is free from mainstream media propaganda — the film doesn’t bash bankers, criticise politicians or get involved in conspiracy theories. It ignites the debate about how to usher a new economic paradigm into the world which would dramatically improve the quality of life for billions.
“It’s Inside Job with bells on, and a frequently compelling thesis thanks to Ashcroft’s crack team of talking heads — economists, whistleblowers and Noam Chomsky, all talking with candour and clarity.” – Total Film
“Four Horsemen is a breathtakingly composed jeremiad against the folly of Neo-classical economics and the threats it represents to all we should hold dear.”
– Harold Crooks, The Corporation (Co-Director) Surviving Progress (Co-Director/Co-Writer)

The United States government has a long history of coup making around the world. With our guest, author and former New York Times Bureau Chief Stephen Kinzer, we take a detailed look at the American overthrow of governments in Iran 1953, Guatemala 1954 and Chile 1973. In examining these coups, we learn the tried and true techniques employed by governments to destabilize and bring down foreign governments. We, also, examine the corporate interests which typically provide the impetus for coups.
Mr. Kinzer is the author of “Overthrow”, a history of 14 American coups ranging from Hawaii in 1893 to Iraq in 2003. He is, also, the author of “All the Shah’s Men, An American Coup and the Roots of Middle East Terror” and co-author of “Bitter Fruit: The Untold Story of the American Coup in Guatemala.”
