DESPROTEÇÃO SOCIAL E BARBÁRIE:A REALIDADE DE FILHOS E PAIS NA SEGREGAÇÃO DOS HANSENIANOS NA COMUNIDADE DE PARICATUBA IRANDUBA AM
At the same time as struggles for rights are consolidated, the struggles of the children of former leprosy carriers gain strength, as the state recognizes them in the Amazon. The aim of the present study was to analyze the issue of social unprotection and barbarism to the realities of children and parents separated by the segregation of leprosy in the community of Paricatuba in the municipality of Iranduba. It is observed in former leprosy patients, the lack, feeling of sadness, worthlessness, shame, guilt and embarrassment. This work was of bibliographic nature, accomplished through the research in books, magazines, articles and internet. The increase in leprosy in the Amazon has had a marked impact on the lives of parents and children, representing an exclusionary metaphor created in the golden age of Rubber, leaving a residue away from leprosy, as if the society of the cosmopolitan elite had not produced either. The state had to recognize the rights of these segregated children, who carry deep marks to the present day. The state has to recognize not only the right of people who were segregated in colony hospitals, but also those who were isolated at home in the middle of the Amazon rainforest.
