Occupy São Paulo pitches camp in Banking District | Demotix.com

The "Anonymous" Mask is also around here

Maybe they are trying to make the most of the movement’s power or just to get closer to the so-called responsible actors of World’s recent recession. One way or the other, the Occupy São Paulo protesters left their original camping site in São Paulo downtown today to set their tents on São Paulo’s (and Brazil’s) most significant banking district, Paulista Avenue.

Something like 20 tents were being set tonight: “almost all of those that were by Anhangabaú Boulevard” said one of the protesters. “And we’ll stay here until the police comes to take us out”, he continued, even though not a single policeman could be seen around. Of course the Anonymous mask – maybe the most omnipresent symbol of worldwide protesters – is also here, on the face of the statue that marks the end of Paulista Avenue and on the face of a protester, the one playing guitar to entertain their friends on this not so warm spring night.

The movement isn’t as strong as the ones in New York or London, their cry has not been worldwide noticed, but they are doing what they can to attract media and public attention, setting their tents among São Paulo’s most iconic avenue after having left their original site, close to São Paulo’s mayor office.
