Brazil Protests


2014 is the year that Brazil, one of the worlds greatest football nation host the 2014 FIFA World Cup. You would think that the nation must be preparing to host the event but what we don’t hear too much about is the fact that Brazilians are not too happy about the fact that the nation is set to spend about 10 Billion . 193,946,886 is the population of the South American nation which is not exactly the most developed.

Why are Brazilians not happy?
Brazilians are taking to the largest cities this week in an effort to bring attention to poor public services, government corruption, and police violence.

It’s very legitimate, its basics that anyone should be fighting for in my opinion. Makes you wonder is it that important to host the world cup? Does the event supersede the basic needs of the nation?

There have been calls from Brazilians urging people not to come and support the World Cup in Brazil. Personally I don’t think that’s the best ask but i hope that the powers that run the country start focusing on what is most important .. Brazilians

For me, feels like deja vu ..
