Vanderlan de Souza (L), 30 and his wife Elenita Santos (R), 28, members of Brazil's Movimento dos Sem-Teto (Roofless Movement), push their cart loaded with cardboard as their daughters Clarice Santos de Souza, 9, and Larissa Santos de Souza (2nd L), 11, sit on the top as they arrive at the former Brazilian Palace Hotel in downtown Sao Paulo November 23, 2010. The Santos de Souza family left the northeastern state of Bahia three years ago for Sao Paulo where Vanderlan and his wife Elenita make a living by recycling cardboard and metal scraps. Their daughters had to skip school for two periods this year after being evicted twice. The former hotel, which spans 15 storeys, was taken over about two months ago by 1,200 people from the movement and they were evicted by a court order on Thursday. Each of the 43 suites of the hotel, which was in operation until the 1980s, had been occupied by at least nine people, usually from the same family. Sao Paulo currently has about 14,000 people living on the streets, with more than half of them in the city centre, according to local media. Picture taken on November 23, 2010.
