Organizers of the occupation, now comprised of 7,000 people, indicate that shots came from a condominium complex located beside the mega-encampment.
Shots were fired at the Fearless People of Sao Bernardo Occupation, initiated by Brazil's Movement of Homeless Workers Saturday, where a man was shot in the arm and later hospitalized, according to Carta Capital.
Organizers of the occupation indicated that the shots came from a condominium complex located beside the mega-encampment. Witnesses have filed a report at the military police station.
The occupation, which began on Sept. 2 has grown to include 7,000 people living in rudimentary conditions on a terrain in Sao Bernardo do Campo city.
Comprised principally of unemployed and homeless people demanding decent housing, the land occupation is located on an open plot measuring 60,000 square meters owned by the MZM construction company.
Though the terrain has been used for absolutely nothing over the past 30 years, the company secured an eviction order from local authorities.
