Rural violence in Brazil

Brazil has a population of one-hundred-eighty-million people occupying a land mass larger than the continental United States.
The country puts satellites into space, dominates nuclear energy for peaceful purposes, boasts the world’s second largest fleet of private jets, exports automobiles, weaponry, aircraft and consumer electronics.
It has millions of acres of arable land, exports agricultural products to every continent, ranks ninth among the world’s economies -- and has an unevenness of income distribution second only to Bangladesh.
The wealthiest ten per cent of the population enjoy more than fifty percent of the national income. Fifty-four million Brazilians live below the poverty line. A miniscule fraction of one percent of the population owns half the arable land, twenty-five million agricultural workers survive on two dollars a day.
As a result of all of this, land wars - one of the subjects treated in my book "Blood of the Wicked" have arisen between the "haves" and "have nots".
No one really knows how many lives have been lost in these wars, but documented cases exceed fifteen-hundred, one of whom was Dorothy Stang, an American Nun.
She was shot dead (two bullets in the face) on the twelfth of February, 2005, four months short of her seventy-fourth birthday.
