So the Brazilian government is in the process of “cleaning up” Complexo da Mare, ahead of football’s World Cup 2014 that takes place next June.
Mare is a favela which is home to over 130,000 residents and is located between Rio international airport and Rio de Janeiro.
The government is claiming that they are simply “improving lives” and not sweeping these residents of Rio out because of the Word Cup.
ARTIKLE HAS BEEN TO RIO ON MORE THAN ONE OCCASION AND SPENT A GOOD AMOUNT OF TIME THERE.
The sights and plights of people of color are the same across the globe!
artikle agree the favelas are a mess and something needs to be done. Why not reinvest in these communities. Why not improve public services and education?
artikle CONSIDERS ALL THIS A SMOKE SCREEN TO GET THE BLACK AND BROWN FOLKS OUT. DEMOLISH THE COMMUNITIES (FAVELAS) AND MOVE THE RICH PEOPLE IN, TO LIVE AND OR VACATION.
JUST A HUNCH.
I LOVE RIO AND THE PEOPLE.
