Há 26 anos aconteceu uma das páginas mais tristes da história do Brasil, mas como somos um país sem memória, pouco se fala da data.

Naquele dia, o primeiro a morrer foi um senhor surdo q não correu pq não ouviu o barulho dos tiros. Ele foi atingido no pé e depois na cabeça.

Um dos últimos a morrer foi uma jovem liderança, Oziel Pereira, de 17 anos. Ele se refugiou em uma casa, mas foi encontrado, algemado e arrastado pelos cabelos até o ônibus da PM. Seu corpo apareceu no IML, assassinado com um tiro na testa, à queima roupa.

Esses 2 juntamente com outros 19 camponeses foram assassinatos esse dia. Segundo o legista Nelson Massini, que fez a perícia dos corpos, pelo menos dez vítimas foram executadas à queima-roupa. Sete lavradores foram mortos por instrumentos cortantes como foices e facões.
