The video September 22, 2005 takes place during a “street vendor evacuation action” by the São Paulo metropolitan police. Two displaced vendors share their opinions about the situation and lament not having the right to work legally. Observing the police’s action, the vendors question the local system’s “lack of democracy” in a country “where one wants to work, and one can’t. One wants to be legal, and one can’t.”
