First things first, I confess I am not a fan of the so called beautiful game, but with massive protests breaking out daily against the World Cup in Brazil because of mass unemployment and severe poverty I can also understand why many indigenous youth do not support the World Cup currently being held in Brazil and realise why the large scale opposition that is taking place has so much validity.
Many Brazilians see their government having wasted billions of their money on this event, while their futures offer little hope, as billions of pounds of money, seems to have been wasted, instead of being directed elsewhere on essential things like healthcare and education.
A country rich in this games history, afterall having won 5 World Cup titles, more than any other country, anticipating a win against their first game against Chile later, one would have thought this event would have garnered some kind of favour, but at the end of the day the poorest people of Brazil will not not benefit, from this most expensive World Cup to date .
People of the World should consider the many people evicted, from their once proud homes and neighbourhoods to make way for this global corporate event, with street vendors removed from their daily sufficiency.
If this occasion, draws attention to the underprivileged Brazilians,it will possibly be of some worth.
Daily protests are rising in numbers, and hopefully the World's stage will be able to witness the people of Brazil speaking out against injustice with their increased public displays of anger.
The world will hear Jennifer Lopez sing 'We are One' but might also understand the the clear voices of opposition standing below, risking arrest for simply displaying their outrage.
Any further disruption to this event I will completely understand, from the favelas and the streets that link, I will support their hungry resistance, with solidarity's breath.
Anyway message spread, enjoy the World Cup, if you can.
