The Struggle Against Global Capitalism: A Conversation the MST
June 20, 2020
Brazil’s Landless Workers Movement (MST) is one of the largest social movements in Latin America, with over 2,500 land occupations and 900 encampments that they acquired through struggle.
In the midst of a global crisis of capitalism, the coronavirus pandemic has aggravated already existing economic and political crises around the world. Brazil now has the highest amount of deaths per day due to COVID-19. This is a direct result of the actions taken by the protofascist Bolsonaro regime. The MST is calling this a genocidal action as the Bolsonaro government, much like Trump, has minimized the pandemic, advocated for the reopening of the economy, vetoed financial support to states to face the pandemic, and incited political violence among his supporters.
As the world is held hostage by the imploding crises of global capitalism, while the US is in the midst of a Black-led uprising, international solidarity is most critical. Join us as we discuss strategies of resistance, international solidarity, and how to build a global movement against capitalism and imperialism.
