Sao Paulo, Brazil
Members of Brazil's Movimento dos Sem-Teto (Roofless Movement) shout slogans to protest against their eviction from the balconies of the former Brazilian Palace Hotel in downtown Sao Paulo early morning November 25, 2010. The building, which spans 15 storeys, was taken over about two months ago by 1,200 people from the movement. Each of the 43 suites of the hotel, which was in operation until the 1980s, has been occupied by at least nine people, usually from the same family. The occupants will be evicted by court order later in the day. 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.
