Movimento dos Trabalhadores Rurais Sem Terra (MST) which translates as The Movement of Landless Rural Workers, is a social, mass, autonomous movement that seeks to articulate and organise rural workers and society to achieve Agrarian Reform and a Popular Project for Brazil. The MST was born through a process of occupying latifundios (large landed estates) and become a national movement in 1984. Since then, the movement has led more than 2,500 land occupations, with about 370,000 families – families that today settled on 7.5 million hectares of land that they won as a result of the occupations. Through their organising, these families continue to push for schools, credit for agricultural production and cooperatives, and access to health care.
