    Brazil's Supreme Court is expected to rule on Wednesday on a land dispute that's caused racial and political tensions.

    The government has set aside an Amazonian reserve for about 19,000 indigenous people.

    But as Gabriel Elizondo reports from Surumu, one of the main entry points to the reserve, the non-indigenous rice farmers who work on the land aren't prepared to leave.
