Stop the Eviction of Quilombo Campo Grande!

A little over a year ago, the MST asked for international solidarity to stop the eviction of 450 families from the MST settlement in the state of Minas Gerais. Because of the large outpouring of support and solidarity, the order of eviction was suspended in July 2019. Now, a new order of eviction has been issued with an eviction date of August 12. Information on the Quilombo Campo Grande settlement is below.
