They failed not only to counter the lies in the public domain but actively counselled against Jean by press releasing details of his visa status on the day of his funeral” - Justice for Jean Charles Menezes campaign

MST kick a gooooaalll!!!

22nd July 2005 | Issue 505 - TERRA-ISTS STRIKE BACK - It was the largest march in Brazilian history, but was much more than a march. For a start it lasted 17 days.

Embarking on their most ambitious action to date they brought 12,000 marchers from 23 states to walk 238 kilometres to the Brazilian capital Brasilia to demand land reform. From a frail 97-year-old man to an 18-year-old seven months pregnant, the marchers took on not just the government but Brazil’s big landowners in the decades-old fight for land.
