Brazil land protests – level 1

30-04-2024 07:00

In Brazil, there are protests about land. People want the land to grow food.

A group of people is organizing these protests. They say the government must give land to people who need it. The government promises to help. The government will give 100 million dollars to 73,000 families. But it is not enough. The farm lobby does not agree with the protesters. They want laws to remove protesters.

Some people think that there is food for everyone. One woman lives in a camp in the past. But now she sells fruits and vegetables. She believes that there is enough land for both rich and poor people.

Difficult words: lobby (people who have big power and they change politics), law (an official rule), remove (to take away).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.

What do the farm lobby and the protesters in Brazil disagree about?
