Reclaiming the Land: A Dialogue with Brazil’s Landless Workers Movement 
and La Vía Campesina Honduras - in Honor of Berta Caceres

Join us for an evening with two inspiring leaders who are growing the 
movement to reclaim land and defend food sovereignty.

Debora Nunes Lino Da Silva is a member of the National Coordination of 
Brazil’s Landless Workers Movement (MST), a major social justice force, 
reclaiming rural land and building communities based on cooperative and 
solidarity economics since 1984. The MST is recognized globally as a 
peasant movement defending land rights and is part of the international 
La Vía Campesina movement for food sovereignty.

Yasmin Lopez is a member of the Women’s Regional Commission of La Vía 
Campesina–Central America. La Vía Campesina International is a global 
social movement led by landless peasants, small scale farmers, fisher 
people, women, indigenous people, and migrant workers from around the 
world. La Vía Campesina defends small-scale sustainable agriculture as a 
way to promote food sovereignty, social justice and dignity.
