It may be located in a part of a landed-estate, at the side of the road, or in front of buildings belonging to the government. The encampment is the form in which the Sem Terra reveal their problems to the public; in this way, it is also a form of pressure to speed up negotiations of Sem Terra demands’(Fernandes, Bernardo Mançano. Pequeno Vocabulário da Luta pela Terra. Unpublished). See also SETTLEMENT and TERRITORIALIZATION.
