FMST Organized Opposition to Invasion of ENFF
The Friends of the MST, along with allies in other social movements, responded to the invasion of the MST’s national school (Escola Nacional Florestan Fernandes) (see article above) by organizing demonstrations in front of the Brazilian embassy in Washington D.C. and the Brazilian consulates in New York, Boston and Chicago.
The demonstrations sent a message to the coup government of Michel Temer that folks in the United States are watching what is happening in Brazil and are in support of the MST. Efforts to criminalize the MST and other Brazilian social movements will be opposed throughout the world.
Additionally, MST supporters in Europe, Palestine and other locations issued statements of support for the MST.
