Some friends of friends of mine in the "Autonomous Groups of the Federal District", have been squatting an abandoned building in Brasilia, and have just been carted off by the police. Story here in Portuguese.

Journalists seem to be spreading a bunch of falsities and inuendos about them eg. that they were the nucleus of a drug-dealing gang, that they were stealing hundreds of reais worth of water etc. (Mainly they're a bunch of anarchists and students trying to set up an arts / community centre. And do the whole "squatting" thing. And they claim they've paid their water bill.)

So pass this link on and help to set the record straight.
