Abstract

This study aims at analyzing the experience and strategies of resistance, reproduction and resilience of European peasantry territorialized in the agricultural community of Marinaleda (province of Seville, Spain) facing the crisis of worldwide capitalism. The experience of this town will be compared with the processes of social reproduction of Brazilian territorialized peasantry, especially, from political activities of peasants' social movements in rural settlers' projects of agrarian reforms, settlements broken down into conventional and environmentally differentiated, institutionally recognized by the acronyms PA's and PDS's. In this regard, in this study we intend to analyze the spatial aspect of settlement processes led by peasant social movements, the implementation of cooperative systems and the adoption of strategies of collective production/marketing and selling, as well as strategies established with local public power and processes of consolidation of public policies with effective participation of the community. This analysis is based on data collected during semi-structured interviews with the peasant community. (AU)
