Registered author(s):

    A controversa presença da cana nos assentamentos rurais nos últimos anos exige uma cuidadosa reflexão sobre sua interferência no modo de vida dos assentados e na relação dos assentamentos com a dinâmica do desenvolvimento regional. A presença da cana nos assentamentos tem suscitado ao longo desse período conflitos internos, discussões, nada consensuais, sobre o passado/ presente/ futuro dessas experiências. A análise da parceria com as agroindústrias é atravessada, do nosso ponto de vista, pela noção de trama de tensões. Nos termos em que a parceria vem se concretizando, temos discutido a necessidade de desconstrução desse conceito calcado na matriz teórica de capital social e a importância de submeter ao crivo analítico as desigualdades constitutivas desta polêmica integração dos assentados às usinas de açúcar e álcool, bem como a construção de uma agenda de políticas públicas de segurança alimentar, pautada por princípios da produção agroecológica de alimentos, pela valorização da produção regional e pela inclusão social de produtores familiares assentados e trabalhadores rurais.--------------------------------------------The controversial presence of sugar cane on rural settlements in the latest years demands a careful reflection on its interference over the settlers’ way of life and in the relation between settlements and dynamics of regional development. The presence of sugar cane on settlements has originated internal conflicts and not consensual discussions over time about the past/present/future of these experiences. The analysis of the partnership with agribusiness is faced, in our point of view, by the web of tensions notion. As the partnership has been turning into real, we have discussed the necessity of deconstruction of this concept, sticked to the theoretical matrix of social capital, and the importance of submitting to the analytical framework all the constitutive inequalities of this polemic integration of settlers to sugar and alcohol plants, as well as the construction of an agenda of public policies of food security, based on the principles of food agroecological production, on the appraisal of regional production and on social inclusion of settler families and rural workers.
