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

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 .

This petition was delivered to:
  • Minister of Justice, Republic of Brazil
    Honorable José Eduardo Cardozo,
  • Brazilian Ambassador to United States
    Ambassador Mauro Vieira
