The People’s Power Minister for Foreign Relations, Jorge Arreaza, met this Friday afternoon with representatives of the Landless Rural Workers Movement (MTS) of Brazil, in the spaces of the Venezuelan Foreign Ministry.
The purpose of the meeting was to review the joint work agenda maintained by the Venezuelan Government and the peasant movement.
Last February, the Vice-minister for Latin America of the People’s Power Ministry for Foreign Relations, Rander Peña, spoke with Alexandre Conceição and Edson Bagnara, members of the National Commission of the MTS, about the solidarity of the Bolivarian Revolution with the Brazilian people and the need to establish training spaces between organizations from both countries.
The Landless Rural Workers Movement is an important Brazilian peasant social movement that groups around 350,000 families. It emerged in 1984 as a reflection of the territorial and social inequalities of the Brazilian State and its structural agrarian situation.
From the beginning, its main banner was the vindication of popular agrarian reform.
