Almost a month after the execution of repossession in the Povo Sem Medo area, on January 10, the prediction of entities and social movements critical of the eviction, unfortunately, was confirmed: 240 people are divided between the homes of relatives, temporary shelters , return to rent or completely homeless.
Despite the discourse of municipal management bodies, especially the Social Action Foundation (FAS), regarding relocation and conditions for the homeless, the reality is that the Homeless Workers Movement (MTST), which organizes and monitors the families, says that 66 people are on monthly rent, depending on fundraising campaigns, and 73 are at home with family and friends, in cramped rooms and uncertain situation.
“All living in a room or garage and needing to leave in less than a month”, describes a report on the movement accessed by the report of the Brazil of Fact Paraná.
In the evaluation of Mariana Kauchakje, coordinator of the movement, during this period it became clear that the city hall of Curitiba does not have any alternative for the families, and does not even present public policies in the area.
“Be it the FAS or even in a meeting with the deputy mayor, the answers are all admitting that the issue of housing is a problem, but all of them exempting themselves from the problem, claiming that land is very expensive, as if there were no instruments within the Statute of Cities to be given priority for land purchases. It’s a situation they admit they can’t handle, they don’t have money and public policy”, he criticizes.
Still according to the movement, in the current situation there are also families that are welcomed by entities such as Cáritas, Peripheral Nucleus and also in other areas of occupation, in solidarity, but for a short period.
Of the total of 240 people, according to the MTST, ten people are completely homeless, in a street situation.
As the main body of the municipality with the task of monitoring the situation of families, the Brazil of Fato Paraná contacted the communication office of the Social Action Foundation (FAS), but received no response.
