Can’t get WiFi password, 4 Amazon aborigines pulled out bows and arrows to attack soldiers and were shot dead 4

Recently, a dispute over WiFi in the Amazon jungle resulted in four Yanomami indigenous people being killed when actively attacking Venezuelan (South American) soldiers.

On March 20, a group of Yanomami indigenous people approached soldiers at a military base in Parima B – a remote part of the Venezuelan Amazon bordering Brazil – asking for WiFi passwords.

Indigenous communities and the military have agreed to share WiFi passwords. A few years ago, they made a deal with the government to use the army base’s Internet connection to promptly report irregularities in their land, especially illegal gold mining.

But last month, there were some leadership changes at the base and the wifi password also changed. Despite walking to the barracks to report the incident and ask for a new password, the soldiers there flatly refused.

An internal report said four people were killed in the clash, six injured – three Yanomami Aboriginal people and three soldiers. Security forces arrived a few days after the incident.

Two of the soldiers were taken hostage and released after only a few days of reconciliation. They were then taken to a hospital in Puerto Ayacucho, the capital of Amazonas state.

According to reports, the clash involved guns as well as bows and arrows. Police seized a 9mm gun and at least 70 rifle rounds.

“This is unprecedented,” said Cristina Burelli, an anthropologist and founder of SOS Orinoco, a group that advocates for preserving the Amazon in Venezuela. “This is the first time soldiers have turned their weapons on this ancient tribe.”

The Yanomami, one of the largest indigenous communities in South America. Yanomami first had long-term contact with outsiders in the 1940s when the Brazilian government sent troops to demarcate the border with Venezuela.
