Flavio Barbosa, who organizes with Grassroots International partner the Landless Workers Movement (MST) in Ceará, Brazil, stopped by our offices in Boston last week. He shared a solidarity message from the MST to immigrants and refugees facing persecution in the United States and at the border. Thousands of immigrant children and parents have been detained, separated from their families, and subjected to horrendous abuse. Thousands more people from the Middle East and North Africa have been stranded by visa restrictions, spending tens of thousands of dollars just to stay afloat in a space between their point of departure and their final destination.
As he states in the video, “People should be free to live and choose a place where they can be well with their family.”
