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. As he states in the video, "People should be free to live and choose a place where they can be well with their family."
In 2017 Grassroots International launched the Global Peasant Solidarity Movement Building Initiative, a series of projects coordinated in collaboration with our partner the Landless Workers Movement/ Movimento dos Trabalhadores Rurais Sem Terra (MST). This initiative, now in its second year, supports international social movements as they strengthen the infrastructure of regional learning centers, independent media production and popular communications trainings, political education, and global solidarity.
