10 June 2014

The MTST (Homeless Workers’ Movement) camp, Itaquera, São Paulo, Brazil – set up 4km from the Arena São Paulo World Cup stadium.

From daily The Morning Star in Britain today:

BRAZIL: The Homeless Workers Movement, which was behind recent demonstrations against the World Cup, said today that it will not stage protests during the event.

Movement head Guilherme Boulos said that the government has agreed to its demands for low-cost housing.

He announced that the government had promised to build 2,000 houses on land invaded last month by 5,000 people just two miles from the stadium where the tournament’s opening match will be played in Sao Paulo.

Britain: Welfare reform puts single people at risk of homelessness: here.
