Mario Lago meets Terra sem males : the production of the other in a landless encampment

By Camila Sobral Barra

Abstract

Resumo: O presente trabalho acompanha a trajetória de um acampamento sem-terra do MST originado em 2002 na região de Campinas, interior de São Paulo e revela as redes de relações constituídas neste espaço, as disputas, conflitos e as negociações, assim como sua interação com as populações locais e com as famílias dos acampados. As orientações prévias dos sujeitos e a intenção de conquistar uma nova condição de vida através do assentamento têm que ser negociadas com as diretrizes do movimento para que seja definido o formato do assentamento e as funções dos sujeitos nesse novo lugar social. A dinâmica das condições presentes no acampamento ? acampados e militantes ? mostra as dificuldades e inventividades dos sujeitos para permanecerem na ?luta? a despeito da pouca infra-estrutura e dos conflitos e divergências de projetos que se apresentamAbstract: This work follows the trajectory of a ?MST? landless workers camp, initiated in 2002 at the Campinas country area, in the State of São Paulo, Brazil.

It also describes the interactions between squatters on the one hand and neighbors and relatives on the other. We conclude that the previous orientations of the subjects and their intention to improve their life condition must be negotiated with the movement's leadership so as to decide on the definitive shape of the settlement and on the subject's functions on this new social place. The dynamics of the squatters and cadres conditions at the settlement shows the subject?s difficulties as well as their inventiveness when trying to stay in the ?struggle? in spite not only of the lack of basic services, but also in face of conflicts and divergences between projects of different actors present ther
