The Landless Workers Movement in Brazil
Movimento Sem Terra and the international struggle for land, food and our own labor.

In February a delegation of 15 representatives from U.S. social movements traveled to Brazil to attend the National Congress of the Landless Workers Movement (Movimento dos Trabalhadores Sem Terra, or MST). The Congress was a celebration of the MST’s thirty-years of struggle, and a debate about its future.

We will have a report back by Bay Area Delegates: Effie Rawlings of Occupy the Farm, Shango Abiola of The Black Riders Liberation Party, and Rebecca Tarlau of Friends of the MST, with insights into the MST's structure and strategy, and examples of how they're changing relations to land and labor.
