Dilma government wants support from the Netherlands to apartheid in Brazil
The Dutch ambassador in Brazil, Han Peters, and diplomats of his team, met on April 1st with the president of the National Indian Foundation (FUNAI), Flávio Chiarelli. FUNAI is the office responsible for implementing the indigenist ethnic and racial segregation policy of the Brazilian Federal Government.
According to the website of FUNAI, this was the first time that a representative of the white nation visited the foundation. During the meeting of about an hour, they talked about possibilities for cooperation actions for the promotion of “rights of the indigenous peoples of Brazil.”
The Netherlands colonized countries such as Suriname, Indonesia and South Africa. Unlike Portugal, which encouraged miscegenation, the Netherlands established in its colonies various rules of ethnic and racial segregation, as well as racially motivated, aimed to divide the colonial societies facilitating the white dominion.
The ambassador said that this approach can generate lessons for the Netherlands on public policies for minorities. He said Europe in general is facing problems of “prejudice against immigrants and ethnic minorities.” Funai’s president commented on the “importance of political support from countries like the Netherlands” for the execution of the institutional mission of the Foundation to promote and protect the “rights of the indigenous peoples of the country”, which would strengthen, for example, policy “ethnodevelopment” policy performed by the indigenist agency of the Federal Government.
According to Funai, through dialogues that will be scheduled in due course, this process will continue with bilateral identifying “opportunities for development cooperation activities.”

Federal government wants participation of the Netherlands in policies for Indians.

The Dutch ambassador in Brazil, Han Peters, and diplomats of his team, met on April 1st with the president of the National Indian Foundation (FUNAI), Flávio Chiarelli. FUNAI is the office responsible for implementing the indigenist ethnic and racial segregation policy of the Brazilian Federal Government led by the white president Dilma Rousseff, of the Workers’ Party (PT).

According to the website of FUNAI, this was the first time that a representative of the white nation visited the foundation. During the meeting of about an hour, they talked about possibilities for cooperation actions for the promotion of “rights of the indigenous peoples of Brazil.”

The Netherlands colonized countries such as Suriname, Indonesia and South Africa.
