Brazil: Remembering the Eldorado massacre

The Castanheiras (brazil nut trees) remember the massacre at Eldorado dos Carajás

Telling the story of a collective act of creativity — to create a monument in memory of the 19 landless farmers killed on 17 April 1996 at the massacre of Eldorado dos Carajás, in southern Pará and to mark 25 years of resistance and struggle for social and environmental justice by the Landless People’s Movement (MST).

Rios de Encontro is an arts-as-transformation project working with young people at Cabelo Seco, Marabá, co-founded by LAB correspondent and eco-cultural activist Dan Baron Cohen.
