23 min.

File No





In Brazil, almost half of the agricultural land is owned by just one percent of the population. Brazil's president, Luiz Ignazio Lula da Silva, has announced plans to resettle more than 100,000 landless families this year (2004), and promised an extra US$500 million towards agrarian reform over the next two years. This video visits the Northeastern state of Bahia to report on an initiative, which encourages the landless to club together to buy up land, with low-interest government loans.
