The territorial mobility was always, in any period and in all societies, an inherent feature to human life. For motives, the most diverse, in all the past production mode the men were compelled to move about the geographic space; in any of them, however, such mobility assumed centrality and importance such as in capitalism. In general, the main objective of this research is to reveal the actions and strategies of the sugarcane agrohidronegócio, under the prism of territorial movement of migrant labor in the cane fields of EDRs from Araçatuba (SP), for the purpose of understand the relationships and impacts on living and work conditions of migrant workers cutting cane, taking as territorial expressiveness to the specific contradictions of what goes on in forced migration process of the workforce to cut sugar cane, personified by sugarcane agro-industrial capital. In this context, the territorial labor movement gains special importance and start being unequivocally "one of the most important phenomena for contemporary society", requiring new readings, because the territorial labor movement is not a mere a spatial redistribution mechanism populations, which adapts to the demands of the economic system; but it is configured as structural of the accumulation of capital.
