ANGUS WRIGHT reads from his new book TO INHERIT THE EARTH: The Landless Movement and the Struggle for a New Brazil. In the country with the widest income gap between rich and poor, where millions of children fend for themselves on city streets, one of the world's most successful grassroots social movements has arisen. Angus Wright tells the dramatic story of Brazil's Movement of Rural Workers without Land, millions of desperately poor, landless, jobless, and seemingly helpless men and women who, through their own nonviolent efforts, have secured rights to over 20 million acres of unused farmland and are feeding themselves and their families and living with dignity. Angus Wright is professor emeritus of environmental studies, Cal State Sacramento; his writing has appeared in The Progressive, In These Times, and The San Francisco Chronicle.
