Dial 100 and Dial 180 will be inside the Caixa boat and a server from our ministry will be inside for people to protect women and children. I need to send a message to pedophiles, child abusers: it's over for you at Marajó, ”said Minister Damares Alves.

"Every Marajoara will receive the plan on his cell phone for you to monitor whether it is being done or not and charge the minister, the government and whoever is executing the project," he said.
