QUIMILI, SANTIAGO DEL ESTERO, ARGENTINA - NOVEMBER, 2012: A group of farmers at a meeting to decide the actions to be taken in order to recover the properties occupied by new landowners. A group of farmers, supported by members of the MO.CA.SE, seize a bulldozer owned by a landowner. Most of the properties of small farmers who have withstood the pressure of large landowners have been isolated and surrounded by the properties of large landowners. Only a few of them have resisted and only a few of them are fighting for their rights. The MO.CA.SE (Farmers’ Movement of Santiago del Estero) is the only movement which officially supports the demands of farmers. However, the MO.CA.SE has its own political agenda, very close to the current government, that supports the intensive production model with the input of agrochemicals.
