But in Brazil, after many years of struggle, the Landless Worker's Movement – MST – achieved a tremendous victory this week in the country's Southernmost state, Rio Grande do Sul. For the first time, hundreds of families acquired land in a region which for hundreds of years, large landowners had violently defended as theirs. Mike Fox has more from Brazil.
