World Cup protests in Brazil

May 21, 2014

Thousands of people in Brazil have taken to the streets to protest about the upcoming Football World Cup.

Riot police in Brazil had to fire tear gas at thousands of demonstrators in Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. Some demonstrators hurled stones while others burned tyres and blocked roads.

The protesters are  marching against the huge cost that the World Cup is forcing the country to pay. They say the billions of pounds being spent on next month’s football tournament, should be spent on social projects, transport and housing.

The Football World Cup is being held from the 12th June to the 13 July.
