Thoughts on South African and international politics and culture

Remind you of something?

Doesn't this story sound familiar:
"More than 8 000 landless activists have surrounded the central bank on Thursday and have threatened a big fight over land next in 2005 unless they get more public money to speed up land reform.

Joao Pedro Stedile, a leader of the radical leftist Landless Workers Movement, said peasants could stage more land occupations if [the President] did not earmark more funds to expropriate and redistribute unused farmland, as the constitution demands."

No it's not Zimbabwe, Namibia, or SA, it's Brazil.
