Genocide: the forbidden word in Brazil

Due to the actions of the Brazilian federal government during the pandemic, the crime of genocide was widely discussed. The issue reached its peak after a show held on July 11, 2020, in which a judge from the Federal Supreme Court associated the practices of the Bolsonaro Government and the Armed Forces with this crime. For some reason, some concerns have become public about the trivialization of the reference to genocide in relation to Bolsonaro's criminal practices. Undoubtedly, framing a crime of such magnitude requires careful consideration of the penal type. That said, I would like to contribute by showing concrete examples, focusing on isolated indigenous peoples, that there is significant evidence that Brazilian authorities, including the president, can be investigated for genocide.
