Decade of Destruction Part 2: Killing for Land

Sep. 19, 1990
60 minutes

Part II follows the land wars which broke out as millions of poor farmers migrated to massive ranches in the Brazilian rain forest. As squatters, they begin to work the land until absentee landlords hire gunmen to kill these peasants. The peasants take up arms themselves, and the result is a lawless gun battle.

Producer(s): Adrian Cowell
