Vanderlan de Souza (top), 30, wife Elenita Santos, 28, and their daughters Clarice Santos de Souza (R), 9, and Larissa Santos de Souza, 11, members of Brazil's Movimento dos Sem-Teto (Roofless Movement), look for cardboard in garbage bags 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 last residence being the former Brazilian Palace Hotel. 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.
