FINALLY SOMETHING ABOUT BRAZIL’S SITUATION ON MY DASHBOARD
WE’RE LIVING A REVOLUTION! WE’VE BEEN IN AN ALMOST CIVIL WAR STATE FOR TWO WEEKS! WHAT THE HELL, FOREIGNERS? TALK ABOUT US!
what the fuck is going on with brazil? why have I not heard of this?
first time this shows up on my dash too. there have been some coverage on twitter, and very little in the media here in Italy. it’s a fucking disgrace. I’ve had to fish through several international online newspapers to find informed news - very few in English -
all these people are protesting for very serious reasons, among which are the ridiculous amounts of money the government has wasted in order to build stadiums for the next World Cup when over half the country is asking for better job opportunities, education and rights, and especially for lower transportation costs (they have been raised because of the ingent expenses the new World Cup have caused).
and then here comes fucking FIFA President Blatter who has the fucking nerve to say “Shut up, football is more important than your problems”
when protesters are being beaten, shot at with rubber bullets, hit with gas and arrested in Belo Horizonte, Brasilia, Sao Paulo and several other cities?!
fuck you, Blatter
I am boycotting the SHIT out of this World Cup btw
