After more than ten years living and working on a land, as sugar cane's workers, they were surprised, banished from their houses in the middle of the night, by helicopters and armed men. They lost everything.
They started to live at the borders of the roads, in encampments, waiting for a land and fighting for the Agrarian Reform.

stealing trucks



A few years ago, during a research about the sugar-cane monoculture at the Brazilian northeast, I met a protest which blocked the road at a small city called São Bento. They protested because too many people where dying, run over by trucks.
Another boy had died that morning.
These are sugar cane's trucks, and these boys are happy
because they found something to steal, to eat.
