On Saturday, the Movimento dos Trabalhadores Sem Terra (MST) or the Landless Workers' Movement of Brazil inaugurated a new football field at its Florestan Fernandes National School (ENFF) in Guararema, 80 km from São Paulo. There is no better way to inaugurate a football field than to hold a football match. That is what the MST did. One of the players was former Brazilian President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, who governed the country between 2003 and 2010. The field was named after the Brazilian football player and doctor Sócrates.
