Sao Paulo, Brazil
For years, 66-year-old Vera Helena, one of the matriarchs of a squatter community occupying an abandoned tower in downtown Sao Paulo, has waited for a call to say she won a slot in the city's coveted public housing lottery. Never has she been among the lucky few, so she continues to make do with a space on the sixth floor of an abandoned garment factory she began calling home in 2002. "There was nothing when I arrived," said Vera, who lives here with her ex-husband and granddaughter. "It was empty. And we started to grab some wood and divide up the space." Vera's family is one of 480 that live in the 22-story tower, Latin America's largest vertical squat, called Prestes Maia after a nearby avenue with the name of a former mayor. There are 46,000 families that have taken up residence in Sao Paulo's derelict buildings, according to city hall, due to a lack of affordable housing and government resources. Their numbers have surged in recent decades with the growth of the city's organised homeless movement. "The movement has a phrase: You pay the rent, you don't eat. You eat, you don't pay the rent," said Benedito Barbosa, a sympathetic lawyer, who works with organisers. The issue is decades old, but it was thrust back into the spotlight in early May when a 24-story former office building occupied by squatters in a nearby neighbourhood collapsed after bursting into flames, killing at least six people. At the time, Sao Paulo Governor Marcio Franca called it a "tragedy foretold." Yet a long-term solution for the city's homeless seems as distant as ever.
