Farmers at the Yvy Pyta settlement near Curuguaty, Paraguay, create a banner with pictures of landless farmers, some of whom were arrested in clashes with police over land reform, as they get ready last month to march to demand the jailed farmers’ release. Yvy Pyta is a community of wooden shacks surrounded by vast, privately owned industrial agriculture. The area’s poor residents have long claimed that one such operation is on land stolen from the state. (Associated Press)
