Joaquín Pinheiro, leader of the MST, Brazil: “We will continue fighting for land and for the Agrarian Reform”

“The Landless Movement (MST) of Brazil is accused of being a criminal organization. This accusation is part of a strategy to criminalize social protest and popular movements. After weakening the Workers’ Party (PT) of Lula da Silva and Dilma Rousseff, who he overthrew, Temer now has it aim set on the MST.
