The squat in São Mamede street is about to be evicted by "la Santa Casa Da Misericórdia" (it is an organitation that is supposed "to help" homeless people). It is the first time that a case about squatting is taken to court in Portugal.

In 1974 about 10000 houses were squated and part of them legalized. Nevertheless, squatting is forbiden in Portugal nowadays.

There are 5 squats in Lisboa at the moment. The new movement started 3 years ago squatting "la casa enkantada".
