The present paper tries to understand the place of the beliefs and societal expectations in the formation of political consciousness of workers and rural landless workers attached to the Movement of Landless Rural Workers - (Movimento dos Trabalhadores Sem-terra - MST). For that, data were collected in the landless workers’ acampamentos located in the state of São Paulo. The data analysis was accomplished taking into account the analytical model of Political Consciousness proposed by the political psychologist Salvador Sandoval and George Herbert Mead’s Social Theory of the self. Six MST encamped families participated in the study.
