In celebration of the 40th anniversary of the founding of the Landless Rural Workers Movement (MST), on the 15th the movement launches the board game “Towards Popular Agrarian Reform” in partnership with the organization Mundukide and the publisher Expressão Popular.
“This game aims to get to know us, to delve deeper, to play, to look and find out about the history of the MST, playing, playing and being part of the struggle towards Popular Agrarian Reform”, says Rosmeri Witcel, from the national coordination of the MST.

The objective of the game is for participants to achieve popular agrarian reform, without leaving anyone behind and with as many seeds as possible to sow the future. Throughout the game, several obstacles must be overcome collectively to complete the final objective. The game is intended for children aged 8 and over, with a minimum number of three players and a maximum of six.
With the help of a die, the rounds follow the direction of the board. In each part of the game’s trajectory, illustrations appear with stories of the MST, which began with the union of landless peasants, in the early 1980s, in Rio Grande do Sul, demanding agrarian reform.

The squares on the board combine the directions that the movement took over time, such as the creation of the first school, the flag, the anthem, the creation of cooperation funds in food production, among other milestones in the history of these four decades.
The game will be released on December 15th and is now available for pre-order on the Expressão Popular website.
