Abstract

This article deals with the social suffering manifested by workers in the process of recognition/titling of land settling for family agriculture amidst latifundia and monocultures of soybean and cotton - hegemonic configurations in agribusiness from the state of Mato Grosso, Brazil. In the contemporary society, social suffering emerges as an important category in the lives of people who lack of access to goods and services. Considering the rural world, suffering may be related to the loss of means of production: land tenure. In this sense, this work seeks to understand the means through which a group of rural workers settled in the municipality of Campos de Júlio manifest suffering. For that, interviews were conducted with eight workers who had lots in the Nova Esperança Rural Settlement. The findings indicate that the structure of the local agribusiness leads to disputes in the occupation and struggle for land, affecting the subjectivity of family agricultural workers. However, such struggle built group unity to resist external pressures. Although inserted within an environment of structural oppression and denial, the workers managed to develop strategies against social suffering that strengthened the group of settled workers.
