Jornal Sem Terra (Sem Terra newspaper)
'The monthly publication of the MST arose as a mimeographed bulletin in 1981, in Porto Alegre, to express solidarity and make public the struggle of those encamped at the Encruzilhada Natalino (RS). It accompanied the progress of the movement for the land struggle and, when that was transformed into the MST, began to be published in tabloid format as its official organ. Since 1985, with the establishment of the National Secretary of the MST in São Paulo, it has been published in that city. In 1986, it won the Wladimir Herzog Prize for Human Rights, from the Union of Professional Journalists of the State of São Paulo. It has been published without interruption for eighteen years, the longest-lasting newspaper to portray the struggle for agrarian reform in the history of the peasant movement in Brazil' (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. 37, n. 7).
