Thousands of homeless families have occupied an area of land in Brazil's biggest city, Sao Paulo.

They are protesting against the city's housing crisis, and say building the camp was the only way they could guarantee roofs over their heads.

The city is facing a shortage of public housing and high rents - issues which the authorities say they are dedicated to tackling.

BBC Brasil's Mauricio Moraes reports.
