|Name||FLM – Front in the Struggle for Housing – Squatters/ Right to the city/ gentrification victims|
|Description||The FLM is a movement created in 2003, reaching around 80 thousand members. It looks like the Movement of Homeless Rural Workers (MST), but which acts in urban areas. The movement aims to map abandoned properties in the downtown area in order to occupy them. Differently from European movements, Brazilian squats involve families of low-income workers and also immigrants who want to establish themselves in the country. In the centre of Sao Paulo there are over 60 buildings occupied, where cultural centers are built too.
This movement is very important because it stands for a direct and efficient response to the effects of gentrification.
