The Struggle for People’s Agrarian Reform in Brazil
A report from the 6th National Congress of Brazil’s Landless Workers Movement

Brazil’s Landless Workers Movement, Movimento dos Trabalhadores Rurais Sem Terra (MST) in Portuguese, is a mass social movement, formed by rural workers and by all those who want to fight for land reform and against injustice and social inequality in rural areas.

With a presence in 23 states of Brazil and with more than 900 settlements with 150 thousand families, the MST celebrates its 30th anniversary this year. In early February, fifteen thousand delegates from all over Brazil arrived in buses and camped outside the National Stadium in Brasilia to take part in the movement’s 6th National Congress.

Peace & Justice Center Board member Charlotte Casey attended the Congress and will report on developments in the struggle for political, economic, environmental and cultural rights in the Brazilian countryside.
