  • The biggest squat I ever saw!

    Last week I was in Sao Paulo, Brazil and visited a pretty amazing place: a huge 20 story building that had been taken over by homeless people and activists and turned into a giant skyscraper squat, successfully defended for years, right downtown. The owner had abandoned the building and hadn’t paid taxes in over a decade, so the people declared they had a right to take it over. This process was shown in a great film by Brazilian director Toni Venturi, called “House Warming Party� (“Dia de Festa�) – Tony showed me around and introduced me to everyone.

    Mainstream banks will come under pressure to lend to the poor after the award to Yunus and his Grameen Bank, the pioneer of microcredits, the maverick Bangladeshi predicted.

    "When it's said that a banker got the Nobel Peace Prize it sounds funny," he told a news conference on the eve of the award ceremony in Oslo, triggering laughter.

    This is a CBC radio report about an interesting program from Old Brewery Mission in Montreal (a partner of ours, by the way)

    I think there are similar programs like this across the country.
