Annoni Farm

‘A farm of 9000 hectares, located in Sarandi, Rio Grande do Sul, which was disappropriated in 1975 and remained in judicial litigation until 1987, when more than 2000 families of the MST occupied it. They pressured the government and the Judiciary into making the settlement effective, this finally taking place in 1992. By virtue of the settlement, the new municipality of Pontão came into being, whose currect mayor is Nelson Gracielli, an old MST militant now settled’ (Fernandes, Bernardo Mançano e Stedile, João Pedro. Brava gente: a trajetória do MST e a luta pela terra no Brasil. São Paulo: Editora Fundação Perseu Abramo, 1999, p. 149, n. 1).
