In Cuiabá, peasant women march to defend social rights
During the march, an act was also carried out in front of the Federal Public Ministry to demand from this institution an action aimed at defending the collective rights of society.
On Tuesday (March 7), the Landless Peasants took to the streets of the capital of Cuiabá in Mato Grosso, in march for more rights for the working class of the countryside and city. They also denounced the setbacks to fundamental rights, won through the working class struggle in the 1988 Citizen Constitution, which are now threatened by the coup government and the National Congress.
During the march, an act was also carried out in front of the Federal Public Ministry to demand from this institution an action aimed at the defense of the collective rights of society. In addition, a document was filed in which the motion presents to the MPF a set of claims.
Then, the march went to Incra [National Institute for Colonization and Agrarian Reform], where the staff of the movement was handed over and an audience was held with the current superintendent. The main point of the meeting was the right to land, credit and rural housing. Incra is committed to responding to the claims by next week.
Also as part of the activities of the Fight Day, a cultural evening was held with the presentation of artists from the people and the traditional Popular Agrarian Reform Dance.
On the morning of this Wednesday (March 8), the Landless Women remained in struggle and held a march towards the INSS against the Pension Reform.
