Vanderlan de Souza, 30, a member of Brazil's Movimento dos Sem-Teto (Roofless Movement), holds up a baby next to metal scraps in 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.

Hundreds of squatters demonstrate in the camp erected by an estimated 12,000 members of Brazil's Roofless Workers Movement (MTST) that invaded a 120 hectare (296 acres) plot of private land nearly two months ago to pressure the government to grant them ownership, in Itapecerica da Serra 38 kms (24 miles) southwest of Sao Paulo, May 6, 2007. Brazil's homeless and landless movements have gained momentum in recent weeks through a coordinated campaign of invasions of buildings and idle land aimed at securing property from the government. A court declared that the land in Itapecerica da Serra must be vacated and returned to its owner by May 7, but the squatters have vowed to resist any attempt to force them out.
