How does Bush fit into the MST's problems? What are they talking about with "American culture" etc; how is that affecting their lives? Paulrevere2005 09:51, 19 May 2005 (UTC)

Carlosar 13:52, 19 May 2005 (UTC) -- The MST should answer this question. I think that a lot of MST members don't know what they are doing; they are just used as an political instrument by their leaders and by the Foro de São Paulo (who have admiration for Castro and Chávez). The MST leaders use a true social agenda as a pretext to fulfil their political goals.

Another answers:

  • the MST blame the USA for the social and develoment problems in Brazil and Latin America.
  • antiamericanism
  • oposition to Capitalism
  • Communism
fun comments for my POV, you'ld try to live outside USA, you'll understand "What are they talking about with American culture"... "American culture" is affecting many countries for the better - of course - but also the worst too. There's countless cultural foundations funded by USA (public and private money) for the better - of course - but also the worst too. (Poland is a well known example) :) Jacques Divol 14:34, 19 May 2005 (UTC)

I already live out of the USA and I have my opinion about the "American culture". However I ask again: How does Bush fit into the MST's problems? The answer is: it is not(Agrarian Reformation is a Brazilian problem, not an American one). However Bush is a problem for Castro, Chávez and the people who support them.

This is a good article about antiamericanism in Brazil. [1]


More information about MSTEdit


There is an American professor from the American University in Washington DC called Miguel Carter who is friend of the MST. There is a American network, inside the USA, which supports the MST. [2], [3]


I don't know if it is a good idea, I dont have too much time now, but someone could update the MST article in Wikipedia. There is a lot of information and great pictures in Commons.
