This chapter discusses and sets the context for the struggle of the MST. It briefly reviews the movement's history, seeks to explain the movement's unusual endurance, and evaluates its main sources of strength. It further probes the MST's reliance on public activism, which is a particular form of social conflict that combines pressure politics and bargaining with state authorities. The chapter ends with an appraisal of the MST's approach to furthering social justice.

Keywords:   MST, pressure politics, public activism, social conflict, social justice, state authorities
