This text explores the formative path of the members of the Brazilian Landless Worker’s Movement (MST). It analyzes the formative and linking force of a "discourse-action" that both constitutes and is constituted by experience to understand how such "discourse-action" could bring men and women excluded from rural areas into an unusual "coming into being", product of rupture and creation. It considers this path by examining the broad range of MST’s formative-educational actions. Such experiences have allowed many people to understand the singularity of their development ("coming in to being") as individuals, as partners and as a social movement. Based on the works by Gramsci, Heller, Arendt and Foucault, this research recurs to a thematic interface to discuss and analyze this experience. On the empirical level, we studied both the documentation and the witnesses of workers from MST settlements.

Keywords : Social movement; MST; Formative-educational actions; "Discourse-action"; Ethical-political friendship.
