Crackland

The urban regeneration of Crackland presses ahead at quite a pace. A "cultural space" is promised, although no luxury apartments just yet, thankyouverymuch. News came today from Folha de São Paulo that the displaced (and crack-addled) masses invaded the demolition site, which has recently been vacated due to various legal wranglings.

The site of men, women and children huddled together in desperation in the middle of the razed and rubble-strewn block looks faintly post-apocalyptic.

"an army of human rags" - Folha
