This terreiro received a hand written letter stating numerous racially and religiously discriminatory things.

Ten terreiros in Sobradinho and Planaltina
The Federal District's Fiscal Inspection Agency (Agência de Fiscalização do Distrito Federal),(Agefis), closed ten terreiros in Sobradinho and Planaltina, claiming that they needed a license for their economic activities. Activists argue that this is discrimination because their primary purpose is a religious space, not to sell things. Additionally, other religious communities engaged in similar "economic" activities and were not closed.
Patric Douglas Anjo Soares Ferreira
Patric worked for the department of transportation of Mesquita. He arrived to work wearing all white with his ilekes underneath his shirt. He said that when he arrived, people immediately started giving him dirty looks. When the Secretary of Transporation (his boss) arrived at 9am, the secretary told him that he was fired. Patric claims that he was fired just because of his white clothes (religious prejudice) and that he was fired in front of everyone. The department claims that he was fired because he had missed work four times since April 7. Patric did not deny missing work but does not believe that was the reason that he was fired.

In 2014, an Evangelical church, Casa de Oração Ministério de Cristo, was built across from the Candomblé temple run by this 90-year-old priestess. Members of the church began to harass Mãe Dede and in mid-May of 2015, she filed a complaint with the police. Two weeks later, on May 30-31, the church held an overnight vigil outside the terreiro, shouting that she was a devil worshiper and a witch, and asking god to burn her temple down. Mãe Dede died of a heart attack during this vigil. Her family attributes her death to this vigil and the constant harassment that preceded it.
