The Pillar of Shame in Brazil, 2000

A memorial of the Eldorado massacre

The Pillar is homage to those thousands of peasants engaged in the struggle for the land, and an act of solidarity with the victims of impunity in Brazil. It was exhibited in front of the Parliament in the capital Brasilia on 17 April, the anniversary of the massacre. Thereafter it was erected on its final site in Belém, the capital of the Pará, the federal state where the carnage had taken place.
