Brazil - Poverty - Domestic Violence - Residents of Occupied Building

29-year-old Samara Pereira de Carvalho holds her mouth in pain, unable to eat two days after husband Mauricio (R) beat her in an act of jealousy. Samara mothers two children, her seven-year-old daughter Sara and four-month-old Ignacio, a product of her union with Maurico Samara has lived for almost three years with her family in 12 foot by 12 foot room in an occupied buildiing in downtown Sao Paulo, Brazil. This is the second time she has been beat up by Mauricio, the first while he was under the influence of alcohol. Samara is afraid to press charges, for fear of losing her children. Three days after the beating, Mauricio, who is accused of having a lover, left his family, returning only days later. Domestic violence is common in this building, where many families have to live in close quarters without intimacy, a loss of dignity and suffering from unemployment.
