Abstract

Peasants and indigenous movements are articulated to ensure access and permanence on the land, pressing the state to achieve development policies. Through land occupations and protests produce spaces and territories, creating conflictualities with national and transnational corporations. Recently, the process of foreignization of land was intensified from 2008 to the food crisis caused mainly by increased use of land for production of commodities from bioenergy sector. This process refers to the purchase and lease of large tracts of land by foreigners for the production of commodities. In Brazil, the state of Mato Grosso do Sul ranks fourth in the acquisition of land by foreigners, increasing land conflicts. Part of these lands are claimed by indigenous and peasants. This project has an innovative character, to investigate the process of acquisition of land by foreigners for the production of sugar cane in the Grande Dourados region (MS), in native lands by occupation from indigenous and peasants, the impacts of this process and the resistance from the Guarani-Kaiowa and the Landless Workers Movement (MST).
