[09/15/10] Benício Del Toro visits the MST school

"The MST brings hope and opportunity to human beings. Opportunities for education, for change. It upholds the same principles as Che Guevara, and is therefore a Guevarist movement."

The man making the comparison is responsible for the best-known interpretation of Che, the Puerto Rican actor Benicio Del Toro. On a visit to the Florestan Fernandes National School (ENFF) in Guararema on Wednesday September 15, Del Toro toured the school, which is aimed at strengthening the processes of study, coordination and exchange between working class organizations in the countryside and in the cities.

After visiting the facilities of the school, the actor - who was in Brazil last week - took part in a discussion with the journalist and writer Fernando Morais (author of the books Olga and Chatô, among others), actress Priscilla Campbell of Human Rights Movement and activists from social movements in Brazil and Latin America.

At the end of the visit, Del Toro planted a tree in the area outside the school and put on the MST cap.
