(ANSA) - SAN PAOLO, 29 SEPTEMBER - Four years ago, when he took office, the current right-wing president, Jair Bolsonaro (Pl), promised that he would not grant "an extra centimeter" of protected indigenous reserves in Brazil.

But indigenous peoples today accuse it of violent and harmful policies for the environment, disastrous for them and their land.

    With Bolsonaro in the running for re-election on Sunday - in the same polls behind former left-wing president Luiz InacioLula da Silva (Pt) - a record 171 indigenous people are running for state or federal positions, to turn the page on what, in their opinion, are four years were catastrophic for the native peoples of Brazil, according to a report by France Presse.
