Earth is fighting to stay alive. Mass dieoffs, triggered by anthropogenic assault and fallout of planetary defense systems offsetting the impact, could begin anytime!

“FIFA, F*** OFF!”

Posted by feww on June 19, 2013

“We don’t need the World Cup!” “We need money for hospitals and education.”

Dozens of demonstrators have been injured and dozens more arrested in clashes with riot police as thousands of Brazilians demonstrated outside the national stadium in the capital, Brasilia.

Protesters took to streets across Brazil, with thousands demonstrating near Maracana Stadium,  in Rio de Janeiro.

Crowds held signs reading: “We need money for hospitals and education” and “We don’t need the World Cup!”

Protesters expressed their anger at the Federation of International Football Associations, which awarded Brazil the World Cup hosting rights, chanting: “FIFA, F*** OFF!”

Brazil has been plagued with protest rallies recently, with thousands expressing their anger at mounting crime rates, rising inflation and 10 percent hike in bus fares.

In Sao Paulo, Brazil’s largest city, riot police clashed and protesters as tens of thousands of people rallied in the streets.

The protests, which began earlier this month over the transport fare increase, have since evolved into a nationwide movement calling for better hospitals, schools and transport.
