The Homeless Workers Movement (MTST) inaugurated, this Sunday (3), a Solidarity Kitchen in the Jardim Veneza community, in the Tatuquara neighborhood, in Curitiba. One hundred lunchboxes will be produced daily, from Tuesday to Sunday. This is the 21st Solidarity Kitchen of the movement in the country and the 1st in Paraná.
National leader of the MTST, Guilherme Boulos attended the opening in the capital of Paraná and stated that the kitchen is a seed of resistance in the country.
“This cuisine is a symbol of resistance in such difficult times in the country, in times when eating is becoming a luxury in Brazil. And it is also a symbol of hope, because other values are sown here, solidarity is sown here,” he said.
Boulos also recalled the negligence of the Bolsonaro government. “Everyone knows about the price of meat, the price of rice, beans. But, above all, the people are having to face the price of rent. The movement is doing what the government should do and it doesn’t”, stated.
::To fight the “hunger pandemic”, MTST opens solidarity kitchen in SP
The community is one of 10 occupations formed during the Covid-19 pandemic in Curitiba, as a result of the worsening of the crisis and the neglect of the federal, state and municipal governments.
Also participating in the act were former governor Roberto Requião, councilor Renato Freitas (PT), and members of the Landless Rural Workers Movement (MST) and Marmitas da Terra.
