Money for stadia but not for homes

Well isn’t this monstrosity fascinating!? The Brazilian government is coy about revealing the number of homeless in that country but nevertheless they are internationally notorious for the number of homeless children & the paramilitary violence used against them. Brazil is also notorious for the militancy of homeless people in resisting evictions & forcible relocations. So here, workers in Brasilia are constructing a stadium for the 2014 World Cup. Imagine that!? Money for stadia but not for homes. Time to throw the oligarchic bums out! (Photo by Ueslei Marcelino/Reuters)
