Congresso. "Agrarian Reform: For a Brazil without Latifundium", mural by Brother Daniel and Elda Broilo for the Fourth National Congress, 2000.
Marking the 4th National Congress of the MST, held in 2000, this mural by Brother Daniel and Elda Broilo juxtaposes signs of human oppression -- hunger, weapons, the mass media, the I.M.F. and the U.S. government, the dollar -- with signs of human emancipation -- food, flowers, houses, books, schools, health clinics, the MST’s flag and the organizing principle of the Congress: "Agrarian Reform: For a Brazil without Latifundium."

Mural Painting
Murals, conceived of and painted collectively, have become important as allegorical representations of the defining themes of state and national level congresses of the MST. They also draw upon and strengthen the symbols of the MST.
