Abstract

The objective of this article is to turn the practices used by Occupação Coletiva da Mamá Cultiva visible to advocate to the right to access health, which would be limited by a context of occupational apartheid. A qualitative research was carried out, with a phenomenological approach, in which the information is produced by semi-structured interviews and discussion groups, with 6 groups participants. The information obtained is organized through a categorical matrix and analyzed through simple categories. The main conclusion is that the resistance practices are strongly rooted in a collective identity. This is related to the shared experiences of group individuals, especially those associated with the experience of psychosocial suffering caused by stigmatization, criminalization and prevalent medicalization.
