The Impunity of Violence Against the Landless Workers (MST) Must End!

    1. Petition by

      Friends of the MST (Brazilian Landless Workers Movement)

Since the first of the year, two landless workers of the Brazilian Landless Workers Movement (MST) have been assassinated in the state of Rio De Janeiro. Additionally, the confessed leader of the militia responsible for the massacre at Felisburgo, state of Minas Gerais has eluded justice for nine years. We want the Ministry of Justice to investigate the killings in Rio de Janeiro and push the prosecution of the man responsible for the Felisburgo massacre. Impunity for violence against the MST and all landless workers must end .

      If there is ever going to be transformative change for the earth and it's people, we must stop discrimination and violence and rather promote dialouge and justice. The MST stand for something important that needs respected!

      I am a college student studying the MST. These acts of violence against citizens trying to create change peacefully must end.
