On 11/11, she joined an entourage of Amazonian leaders (Thaline Karajá, Val Mundurucu, Huni Kuin,…) who came from COP26 in Scotland and met in front of the European Parliament with the participation of several deputies such as Marisa Matias and Miguel Urban (The Left) who support the indigenous cause and fight against the Mercosur agreement, a threat to traditional peoples and forests of the countries involved.
The initiative and organization of the delegation at the international level was taken by the Parisian association Jiboiana, whose members are directly involved in several projects in Amazon.
The manifestation also has a cultural character with the music of the “baque de chuva” and the ritualistic dance of the snake around the Luxembourg square.

La manifestation s’est tenue en présence, notamment, de représentants de peuples autochtones d’Amazonie, dont le traité menace l’habitat, et de cinq députés européens opposés au projet.
