Land and revolution in Mexico and Brazil

The actions of the MST in Brazil and EZLN in Chiapas illustrate the importance of mobilisation and grassroots radicalisation of peasant communities to resist globalisation and the privatisation of the right to land.
These two movements criticise the sanctity of private property and say, “land should not be private property, land is the basis of life”.
