Learning the processes and actions operated by Sugarcane Agrohydrobusiness capital when building the production territories of commodities¸ lead us to take into consideration the structural subordination of work and territory as spatial trumps of the action of the capital manipulative system, essential to the capitalist accumulation process. Thus, we focused in understanding the spatial unfolding caused by the productive restructuration in the Sugarcane Agrohydrobusiness at this second decade of the XXI century, as well as the disastrous consequences to workers.
